Where is Placencia Village Belize?

Posted on Monday, August 26th, 2013

Much of our advertising makes a reference to our premier location in “Barefoot Perfect” Placencia. Why is this being emphasized so much? Where is Placencia Peninsula and Placencia Village?

placencia peninsula ibelize-map

Reason No. 1

Placencia is the name of a 16 mile long Peninsula in southern Belize, in the Stann Creek District, at the end of which lies the Village of Placencia. While that is easy to visualize perhaps, what is most confusing for first time travelers to the area is that every resort, hotel and accommodation along that 16 mile stretch of beautiful Belizean earth lists its location as in Placencia. And here is where the confusion comes . . .

Reason No. 2

What we have heard many times from our visitors and others who we meet in the Village, is that their intent and expectation was that they would be near to or in the Village with their accommodations. Then, they could explore it at their leisure, enjoy it’s local culture and freindly locals, partake of the many restaurants, street vendors, gift shops and entertainment that it provides as a backdrop to the awesome Belize adventure vacations they came to Belize to enjoy.

So, it is important for us to note and illustrate just where Chabil Mar is located on the Placencia Peninsula for those guests who do want the Village experience at their fingertips, leisurely, without the additional time and expense that being as little as two miles from the Village would require. As they saying goes, “

Like most ideal destinations, location is paramount to a truly unique experience!

Chabil Mar Belize Resort is a barefoot luxury resort and is the closest full service resort to the Village of Placencia.

Reason No. 3

What does our premier location nmean to you? Affords you the pleasure of a beach walk, bicycle, kayak or golf cart ride in five minutes to Placencia Village or hop on our complimentary nightly shuttle service, to enjoy multiple Restaurants, Gift Shops and Entertainment at your leisure. Then, effortlessly slip back to the peacefulness that is Chabil Mar!

Visit our photo gallery for maps of the area or just take a look at the ones posted here and see how convenient we are to Placencia Village, yet steps away to assure you the privacy that an service award winning resort provides.

Amazing, Best Vacation We Have Ever Taken

Posted on Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

Elizabeth 650 at Kaleidoscope Chabil Mar Belize Resort

In early July we had the pleasure of having Stephen and Elizabeth Forman visit with us and become a member of our Chabil Mar family. From fishing and having our chef’s “Cook Their Catch”, to Monkey River excursions, to drinks at the pools and grill night on the beach and breakfast on their veranda overlooking the Caribbean, toes in the sand, and happy hour at our Kaleidoscope Bar, a combination of relaxation and adventure vacation was had.

Following their Belize vacation, Elizabeth posted the following review on Tripadvisor about her experience.

“We are travelers, and we love the beach. My husband is an activities guy while I am a relaxation type of vacationer, and we are both foodies this vacation is the best of everything! The grounds are beautiful staff is phenomenal and the food is amazing! It is one of the only places in the village with A/C so when it is humid and hot you will be so grateful for it! We loved every single one of the staff there. DeShaun the bartender makes THE BEST DRINKS I have ever had out of any tropical vacation we have ever been. If you do visit placencia you HAVE TO to the Monkey River Tour, most interesting and fun experience I have ever had. Percy Gordon is fabulous! I recommend this place to any and everyone, and we went in the “wet season”, that’s how good it was! By the way the weather was fabulous… it rained maybe once a day for an hour but then it cleared and was beautiful and it rained at night while we were asleep which was very nice!

Thank you, Elizabeth and Stephen. We look forward to your next visit.

And we hope all of our readers enjoy the photos that you shared with us.
