I recently stayed at Playa Blanca Island Villa again for a second time and had a blast... If you want to fish..this is the place to stay. Both guides, Ivan and Tacio are the best. They are local island guides (in their 40's)and really know what fishing is all about. They show you a great time and you decide when you want to fish and how long you stay out there.
This year we were there during lobster season and learned to free dive..our first attempt. We had lobster grilled, lobster salad, lobster fritters, lobster alfredo..anyway you can think of preparing lobster, we had it. Tacio offered all kinds of ways to prepare it.
The villa is top notch. It's beautiful..you couldn't ask for better accommodations and the staff is fabulous. It's my wife's villa of choice.
My wife never had any kitchen clean up..the housekeeper took care of everything. This year we only brought a few shorts, shirts and bathing suits as we learned our lesson from overpacking last year...all of our laundry was washed and returned the same day, just like they said would be done.
Since we really like to fish and snorkel it was a huge savings for our family of 4. We went fishing every day, and snorkeled a few times a day...went to San Pedro at least once a day, went to Caye Caulker and fished the lagoon. The boat is included with the villa so you do what you want, when you want.
I would recommend Playa Blanca to anyone wanting to do more than just read a book.
Say hi to the boys for us..
