Placencia, Belize has the reputation of being the caye you can drive to. Located on the southern end of the Placencia Peninsula, this quiet fishing village has become a mecca for expats looking for someplace out of the ordinary, where natural beauty, a relaxed, laid back vibe, and unsullied beaches transport the visitor from the hectic pace of 21st century life to the serenity of a tropical paradise.

The twelve plus miles of beaches are a great jumping off point for scuba and snorkel exploration of the Belize Barrier Reef (second largest in the world). Fishing and other marine activities also are plentiful.The ancient Mayan ruins of Nim Li Punit and Lubaantum are a short day trip away from Placencia. During full moons, between April and July, visitors can experience whale shark watching. Foodies can indulge themselves at Lobster Fest during Easter Week.

For investors, expats, and retirees with fixed incomes, finding affordable beachfront property at a reasonable price is still possible. The fact that English is the official language, and that the US dollar is the accepted currency, also help make choosing Placencia as a retirement or investment option a win-win proposition.
