Hello everyone!!
Does anyone have suggestions on where to go if you had an extra 2-3 days in Belize after visiting AC then Jaguar Paw?

I'm not looking for anything in particular - just someplace "not to miss" in Belize.

I'm so exited to visit Belize I can hardly stand it!!! Arriving in AC this Saturday - what to do first??

You ain't been to Belize until you've been to Placencia.

Checkout placencia.com

Enjoy

Hi divin,
I heard that Placenta is pretty run down from hurricane Iris? Is that still so?

Placencia is along way to travel to and from for just two extra days. I'd move from Jag Paw further west to Cayo for ruins, caving, canoeing, kayaking hiking and more. Visit the Zoo along the way too.

i agree on a trip to cayo....if you want to see the mother of all ruins take a trip to tikal...most all tour operators offer them out of san ignacio....we stayed at the aguado
and enjoyed their hospitality cheap rooms with a restaurant, pool and lounge...they can also arrange a tikal trip for you

I agree w/visit to the Cayo - fun drive! How about a visit to one of the butterfly farms? We were glad we side tracked to Green Hills. Also the zoo. And Tikal is awesome! We too stayed at the Aguada in Santa Elena. Have fun!!

Obviously you have not been reading the posts on this and other boards.

Placencia, including my house, was totally inundated by Hurricane Iris but we have overcome this terrible ordeal and are getting on with our lives and businesses.

For sure the area does not look like it did before Iris but in a lot of ways it's even better and the whole village is working to make things even better. Even to the point of local people donating thousands of trees and shrubs to other local to make the village GREEN once again.

Anything and everything that was available in the village is available now. Restaurants, bars, diving, tours, cayes, snorkeling, large/small/medium resorts both high dollar and low.

And as far as getting there...if you are going to the butterfly farm your almost to Placencia anyway. Its only a 35 minute flight from BC in a small puddle jumper to Placencia.

As I have said before, you have not been to Belize until you have been to Placencia.

Negative comments about the condition of the village can only perpetuate your wrong information. PLACENCIA IS BACK AND GETTING EVEN BETTER!

If you would like to help the village instead of perpetuate incorrect info come and spend your money with the local guides, resorts, restaurants, bars, etc.

These guys have spent a lot of money, most borrowed at high interest rates, to bring the village back to what it is so that guest can continue to come to Placencia to enjoy themselves. I am sure that they would appreciate your business.
