    • Anywhere to buy ocean/pool floaty toys?

      Belize Nov 7, 2015 at 2:48 PM

      Sailing for a few days out of Placencia with some friends - we were hoping to get our hands on some relaxing floaty toys to lounge around in during the trip. They're too big and heavy to fly with - anyone know of a place somewhere between Belize City and Placencia that we can buy these (sports store, ocean or boating supply, toy store, large supermarket, etc)? And maybe a decent hammock?

      Travel ideas with a 1 year old

      Belize Nov 11, 2015 at 3:23 PM

      My wife and I are 30 and 28 and have had our fair share of travels. We have explored Central America, Fiji, the Caribbean and Hawaii. We love to do anything outdoors and are divers. Our all time favorite trip was that of Belize, great culture, nice waters, amazing hikes, and great food. We tend to do Hawaii once or twice and year and love it there. In fact we love it so much that our son has a Hawaiian middle name and he has already been there at the age of 4 months. As much as we love Hawaii, I would like to experience another "outside the box" trip before we have our next one. We will most likely be traveling sometime between next May and next August. I just need help coming up with ideas. I'm looking for a place that will entertain my wife and I but is still easy to take my son there. Obviously someplace safe, as I've already had to experience hospitals in other countries and I'd prefer my son not but at least know if we had to then it would be ok! Any help would be awesome, and feel free to ask questions. Thanks!

      Where to stay

      Belize 19 hours ago

      My wife and I are retired and are proposing to visit Belize in January 2016 for about a month to determine if it is the place for us for future UK winter holiday escapes.
      Firstly is January a good month to visit, should we stay a week in four different locations for instance or stay in one place and rent a car to visit other places and can anyone recommend accommodation.
      What should we know about Belize. We are seasoned travelers, so enjoy visiting new countries.
      Thanks in advance

    • From Belize City to Placencia

      by felicehz Online Now May 20, 2014 at 11:47 AM

      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?

      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.

      Ambergris Caye or Placencia?? (URGENT!!)

      by minktastic Online Now Jun 22, 2010 at 8:08 PM

      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.)

      plane and/or bus?

      by Beate64 Online Now Dec 29, 2007 at 1:51 PM

      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!

      Beate :))
