Straddling the shores of the Caribbean Sea and the Central American jungles, Belize is a small country that really packs a punch, with its history of the mysterious Mayan culture, the miles of white-sand beaches, amazing wildlife and invigorating experiences, and the village of Placencia is a tropical gem, full of expansive beaches, excellent opportunities for fishing and diving, and easy access to the Southern cayes. Stay for a week with your nearest and dearest in a newly constructed oceanfront two-bedroom condo!

You and your crew will feel at home in a two-bedroom and two-bathroom condo located on Sunset Point Drive, which is a prime quiet location in Placencia Village. All units have been professionally decorated inside and out with high-end furniture and appliances, all the comforts of home, plus all the amenities you'll need for an amazing beach vacation! Cook up something delicious in the fully-stocked kitchen or on the outdoor gas grill, soak up the sun relaxing on the rooftop as you look out at the Caribbean Sea, relax in the large private pool and take advantage of the amazing 360 degree views and ocean breeze! The condos are perfectly located in Placencia, close enough to walk into town, yet on a private and quiet street without the traffic and noise, typical of most other properties in the Village.

Get ready to take on the best that Belize has to offer! Only in Belize can you find the perfect blend of Caribbean and Central American cultures, and take advantage of the incredible geographic diversity - mountains in the morning and the shores at sunset! From breathtaking views and azure waters perfect for snorkeling and diving, to world-class fishing and Mayan ruins nearby, you'll find the perfect activity for every person at any time. Enjoy the rich Central American culture, the vivacious nightlife as well as numerous activities on both water and land. Spend the day exploring the second largest natural barrier reef in the world, or embark on a tour of ancient Mayan ruins.

Bordered on one side by a lovely mangrove-lined lagoon and on the other by the Caribbean Sea, Placencia is renowned for having some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. With the look and feel of an island, it's no surprise that Placencia is often described as the "caye (island) you can drive to." On the mainland, nearby attractions include hiking through the vast Cockscomb Basin Nature Reserve (home to some of Central America's last surviving jaguars), learning about native wildlife and plants on a boat trip up the aptly named Monkey River, and touring ancient Maya ruins such as Nim Li Punit and Lubantuum.
