If a word can be spoken that evokes the essence of the thing or place it is describing, then the word “Placencia”, is it. The sound of the word is as beautiful and exotic as the place itself.
Say it out loud and slow: Pla-cen-ci-a. Gorgeous!
We almost skipped stopping in Placencia. Guide books and other travelers warned us that it was too touristy, but we wanted to see it anyway. As soon as we stepped onto its shore, our two day affair with Placencia started.
First with miles of sandy beach and later with a peep show of delight.
