Located along the eastern coast of Central America on the Caribbean Sea, just two hours flight from the US, Belize is a unique blend of pristine nature, diverse geography and endless adventure. Thriving rainforests, miles of stunning beaches, hundreds of islands, and the world's second largest barrier reef set the stage for a vast array of activities to engage every personality. And, it is a melting pot of colorful personalities. The Belizean people are made up of Maya, Mestizo, Kriol, Garifuna, East Indian, Mennonite, Arab and Chinese.

Meanwhile, Placencia, located in southern Belize, is ideally suited for those adventurers who wish to experience all of the adventures of Belize from one central location. Mr. Coh, General Manager of Chabil Mar, explains why Placencia is such a great location. "Placencia is a 16 mile long peninsula, the end of which lies the traditional fishing village by the same name. Chabil Mar is located in Placencia Village and, as a born and raised Belizean myself, I can say that this area is ideally suited. From this location guests to the area can experience scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, a variety of jungle excursions, Maya archaeological sites, birding, island explorations or overnight accommodations, zip lining, cave swimming and tubing, swimming in water falls and other Belize adventures on single day tours, without relocating to another area of the country."

"Those of us who live here are also very proud of the accolades that Placencia received from the Belize Tourism Board this past spring to recognize our contributions to the culture and tourism trade in Belize. In addition, over the years, Placencia has received outstanding recognition from tourism industry partners. For instance, Placencia has been called 'A quaint town that seems to have forgotten about mass tourism' by GQ Magazine and Carribean Travel & Life Magazine 'The Carribean's Coolest Beach Towns'. Recent awards by Tripadvisor include making the Top 25 list of Beaches and Destinations in Central America, 2012."

"The Belize Tourism Board went on to recognize Placencia and its businesses in its 2013 spring awards for Destination of the Year, Hospitality Award to the Placencia Tourism Industry Association, Locaton of the Major Festival and Event of the Year, as well as the location of the Restaurant of the Year, our own Miss Natalie Ranguy as Frontline Person of the Year and the Top Tour Operator of the Year."

"I am so proud of my country, its resources and its people and I am especially proud to work in the tourism industry in Placencia where we welcome guests to explore with us and allow us to treat you all to a Belize vacation adventure."
