Welcome to Placencia
Mirasol is located in beautiful Placencia, Belize. The Placencia area is known for its lovely beaches, offshore cayes, and easy access to the Belizean interior, full of lush tropical rainforests and Mayan archeological sites. Placencia is the perfect home base for all your Belize explorations.
Placencia’s Beach and Harbor
Placencia’s beaches offer warm sand and temperate water, often calm as glass. While you’re here, you might end up spending every afternoon just relaxing on this idyllic shore. A short walk down the town’s sidewalk and sandy foot path will bring you to Placencia Harbor, whose sheltered waters are haven for a variety of vessels. Keep an eye out for dolphins cruising the harbor, and perhaps even a ray or two in the shallows.
Local Businesses in Placencia
The center of town, Placencia Village Square (a short distance from Mirasol), is home to Caribbean Tours and the Placencia Tourism Center, both valuable vacation resources. Tutti Frutti Italian Ice Cream Parlor is the spot to go for a cool treat. The Purple Space Monkey, known for some of the finest burgers around, can be found at the Placencia Village Square.
If you’re interested in cocktails with names like Category 5, Placencia Breeze, and Belizean Long Island Iced Tea, head up to the Barefoot Beach Bar. Just get settled on a beach chair and you’ll be in vacation mode in no time. The Barefoot Beach Bar has a great night of dancing every Sunday, featuring a local band.
Two of the best-stocked groceries in the village are just a few minutes away from Mirasol, as well as a fresh vegetable vendor, which makes cooking at home a great option. Ask someone how to prepare your local dish of choice, grab some coconut milk, ricado, and hot sauce, and test out your culinary skills at your Mirasol rental.
