Placencia

Placencia ©
Once a humble fishing village, Placencia has been transformed into a leading tourist destination, with its focus primarily on outdoor activity and natural exploration.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Placencia: Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Preserve (in Dangriga) and Outback Trails (in Kendal). And it doesn't end there: head off the coast to Laughing Bird Caye National Park, stop by Che'il Mayan Products, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.

Discover how to plan a Placencia trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

Boston, USA to Placencia is an approximately 11-hour flight. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Boston to Placencia. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Boston in June, with highs in Placencia at 89°F and lows at 74°F. On the 5th (Sat), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can fly to Lighthouse Reef Atoll.
