My husband and I are looking for an affordable bus/coach from the airport to Placencia. Are there any tour buses that go that direction? We priced the cost of a van and it was $400 one way (we could fly roundtrip for that on Maya Air). Any suggestions?
I see that placencia has several beaches with resorts on it, as a cruise passenger are we able to get access to use their beaches, we have a set of twins age 3 and a 16 year old, would like to go to a beautiful beach, with restaurants nearby, clean facilities to use, how far away is placencia from the area when cruise ships come into port?
Is there a road into Placencia Village? Is there a place to park a rental car while walking around the village? We are staying about 5km from the center of the Village.
I loved the above Gelato spot in the village. would anyone know if they have a website or email address?

My husband and I are going to Placencia Village on Feb. 15 for a week and would like to go fishing. Has anyone used a guide/tour company they'd recommend?
Please help!! My husband and I are making last-minute plans to vacation from July 1-6. We want a nice beach vacation, not overly touristy but not too remote. We'd love to go somewhere with clear water and comfortable beaches, great snorkeling (right off the beach and/or cheap and easy to get to), and some kind of small town with local restaurant options.
We think we've narrowed it down to 2 good options: Ambergris Caye and Placencia. I understand that Ambergris Caye is a little more touristy than Placencia, but it doesn't seem like it's gotten too bad. Which place has the better beaches, the better snorkeling, the more interesting town? Or, is there anything else that we should be considering in comparing the two? Any information or opinions to help tip the scales would be useful!
(Side note: the two hotels were looking at are Corona del Mar in AC, and Maya Beach Hotel in Placencia.)
Hello, I am coming to Placencia in February with my husband. Our plane arrives Feb. 3rd 11:56am. I saw that the next flight to Placencia goes out at 1:30pm. Is it better to reserve two seats at that time of year?
Also, we are thinking about going back to Belize City by bus... any thoughts on that or should we rather book right away round trip tickets?
Our plane out of Belize City leaves March 7th 12:55pm.
Also, at the time I booked this all, it was not that easy to find a suitable flight out and we ended up with 33 days in Belize instead of the allowed 30 days... do we have to especially make a trip out of the country to Guatemala for example to extend for 3 days or can this get arranged once we go through customs?? As they will see anyway the dates of our trip and the extend of our stay...
Also, I've heard that Skin so soft from Avon works very well against sand flies... any experience and input from anyone?? Should we bring mosquito stuff with deet or purchase once we arrive??
Thanks so much for your help! I look forward to any answer :))) and to our holidays!
