Getting to Placencia is EASY! You can come by air, sea or land and let us be the first to tell you the Placencia Peninsula road is GREAT right now with many portions newly paved and others so smooth you’ll think they’re paved. Don’t forget the easy access from across the lagoon either - water taxis travel back and forth all day long from Independence Village. All the more reason for YOU to come to Placencia Lobsterfest 2009.
