We visited both Placencia and Ambergris Caye last February/March. We were looking for fun beach towns, one of these trips we will make it to San Ignacio, but hasn't happened yet. I really enjoyed both places, but my heart belongs to San Pedro. Actually, we continued our beach journey up the coast of Mexico, spending a couple days in Tulum and Playa del Carmen, finally flying home out of Cancun. It was a great trip. Jean
