Found on an idyllic seaside setting in beautiful Placencia Village; Mirasol is the perfect place for your visit to the Placencia Peninsula.  Located right on the beach Mirasol’s convenient location is just minutes - that’s walking time, not driving time - from the most scenic and popular spots around. 

When the need for warm sand and even warmer water becomes more then you can bear head right out your front door to Placencia’s famous beaches. Make your way to the shade of your coconut tree of choice mere footsteps from the azure waters.  On a calm day the water looks like glass and you can see cayes dotting the horizon.  A perfect place to just chill….

The new “center” of town, Placencia Village Square – just a few minutes from Mirasol -  is the home of several businesses that can only enhance your stay.  A visit to Tutti Frutti Italian Ice Cream Parlor is a must and will change every idea you’ve ever had about ice cream.  Caribbean Tours, the one stop for all your tour needs, and the Placencia Tourism Center, headquarters of local chapter of the Belize Tourism Industry Association, call the Square home.  The Purple Space Monkey, known for some of the finest burgers around, can also be found at the Placencia Village Square.

A short walk down Placencia’s famous sidewalk and along a sandy foot path will bring you along the shores of the Placencia Harbor, whose sheltered waters often give safe haven for a fleet of catamarans and small mono hulls.  While not the best spot for swimming you can often spot dolphins cruising the waters and if you take the time to look you can often see tiny crabs and fish, even a ray or two in the grassy shallows. 

Or if you need the sun, sand and sea and a totally “I’m on Vacation” kind of feel head up the beach to the Barefoot Beach Bar.  Just get settled on a beach chair and someone will be out to take your order.  The drink menu is longer than the food menu and with creations like the Category 5, the Placencia Breeze and the Belizean Long Island Iced Tea you are sure to get into the real “on holiday” mood.  The Barefoot Beach Bar has a great night of dancing ever Sunday with a local band and everyone comes out to join in the fun as well as Full Moon parties.

Two of the best-stocked groceries in the village are just a few minutes away, as is a fresh vegetable vendor which makes your option of cooking home a great one.  Ask someone how to prepare you favorite local dish, grab your coconut milk, ricado, and hot sauce – almost all the great local dishes have those ingredients - and test out your culinary skills.
