Placencia Village

Friends and family have asked about where and how we live, so here are some candid shots.

David Perez brings fresh fruits and vegetables to the peninsula. He has two stores now, one in Seine Bight (the original) and has opened a second store in our village.

The local police station. Not that busy on a regular day, thank goodness.

Our mini-mall. As you can see there is room to expand as there is an empty space between the corn tortilla factory and the post office.

There is only one road in Placencia, this is the south end looking north. If we stepped back any further, we would be in the sea.

This is Lacy with Belize's version of fast food. She makes corn tortillas, heated and deepfried, flour tortillas and burritos. That big yellow cooler is usually filled with ice cold juice.

Your typical shrimp fisherman, just in with a fresh catch.

Some local artwork at the tourist shop. These pictures don't do it justice.

Placencia Tourism Center, very helpful and pleasant people in there.

Our deck with our new flag in the breeze.

The moon from our deck.

  1. Wow... love the area. I've been to Ambergris Caye and Corozal but no further south than looking down the start of the Hummingbird Hwy when going cave tubing at Jaguar Paws.

    Just how much hotter (and/or more humid) is it down where you are now compared to C Caulker?

    Enjoying your blog by the way!
