Placencia Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)
Looking for the road less travelled without sacrificing comfort? Come stay in our beautifully appointed, spacious condo on the beach at Los Porticos in Belize. Built in 2009, this condo is located near Placencia village on the Placencia Peninsula in southern Belize.
Belize boasts the second largest barrier reef in the world with hundreds of small islands (Cayes) and the diving and snorkeling is superb. Swim in the warm Caribbean waters or if you'd rather, slip into the wonderful saltwater pool, relax on the beach under a cabana, or enjoy breathtaking views from the huge private balcony.
Local tour companies offer sea kayaking, fishing, caving, visits to explore Mayan ruins, or treks through the Belizean jungle to look for any of hundreds of bird species. The Village of Placencia has shops to explore, many featuring work by local artisans. You can also stock up on groceries if you prefer to do your own cooking in our fully equipped kitchen, or enjoy the great restaurants in Placencia. English is the official language although you'll hear Spanish and the local dialect. Come down for the Lobster Festival, or in time for whale shark season. Whenever you choose to visit, you'll find everyone here is friendly and this quiet side of Belize offers an extraordinary vacation. It's all waiting here for you.

Los Porticos Villas
We are three Canadian couples who have joined together to share this villa. We enjoy getting away from our cold northern winters, but we've also enjoyed coming down in the summer for Lobster Fest. We love the climate, the smell of flowers in the air and the beautiful water. We hope you'll come and experience it for yourself.
This is a great property in a great location. The villa is spacious, well appointed and steps from the beach. Los Porticos is a well designed property overall with lots of space and lovely gardens. A special events facility, spa and restaurant are due to open in the near future. Our beach extends all the way into the village of Placencia, which has a surprising number of amenities for its size and remains less developed than resorts in the north.
Our location on the second floor, in the second building in from the beach, provides great views of the sea, the pool and gardens. This is our home away from home so we've tried to make it feel that way with books, DVDs, games and artwork from local artisans.
