Our main residence is in Colorado and we appreciate natural beauty and an active outdoor lifestyle. We have been vacationing in the Caribbean since the early 70s and have always searched for the perfect location to build a home. We decided on a Villa in Placencia because of the excellent diving, snorkeling, the beautiful beaches, the clear water and the quiet laid back friendly village atmosphere. No high rise condos here, no cruise boats, but instead lots of excellent beaches, restaurants, bars and plenty of activities to keep you busy.
Roger purchased this villa in 2009
We wanted the very best unrestricted Caribbean Ocean views possible along with an ideal climate located near an unspoiled laid back fishing style village. Placencia was the answer. We were seeking privacy and quiet, yet wanted to be close to good restaurants, bars and all the island amenities of diving, swimming, kayaking and fishing. We also wanted to be part of a local community, and the Los Porticos development has provide us that opportunity.
One of the greatest benefits of Placencia is that it can be reached from nearly anywhere in the United States without spending an overnight en route. We enjoy the near perfect climate, the ocean breeze that never seem to stop, the quiet beauty of the Caribbean and of course those crystal clear emerald blue/green waters. It's peaceful and quiet, yet there are so many things to do. You can really set your own pace here.
Happy New Year! We had a wonderful time at your place. It was perfect for our family. Loved the Beach and pool set up. You place is beautiful. I enjoyed watching the sunrise every morning.
Barry and Val were incredibly helpful and charming. Hopefully we will return in the future.
Our family spent Easter week in this incredible ocean front villa and it exceeded all expectations! The views from the verandas were spectacular and we spent a lot of time out there relaxing and enjoying it. The condo itself was immaculate and full of amenities and perfect for our family with two teenagers. We felt very much at home!
We loved having the private pool and the beach right at our door step and enjoyed watching the Iguana that hangs out there. The ocean was warm and calm and perfect for swimming. It was great to have so many options for swimming: a private pool, the beach and a large community pool. The grounds are beautiful and immaculately maintained and the people are friendly. Barry was very helpful and also set us up with Ivan for snorkeling, fishing and a Monkey River Tour and we highly recommend him!
We loved the location and it's proximity to Placentia. The villa includes bikes and we used them every day to go into town and to explore the surrounding area. They were definitely a highlight of our trip and we even used them to go to the store because some had baskets. We really loved spending time in Placentia - the people were so friendly and we enjoyed the opportunity to be a part of the local community (like going to the local church on Easter Sunday). It was also fun just to sit at a local establishment and talk to people.
This was our first time to Belize, but it won't be our last. At the end of our week, we were definitely not ready for our vacation to be over. We will be back and will absolutely stay at Los Porticos again at the same villa. Roger was very helpful in answering questions, accommodating us, etc., especially since we had never been to Belize before and had no idea what to expect. It exceeded our expectations!
Thank you for everything!!!

My husband and I spent the week of April 9th in this beautiful villa. The amenities were superb, the view was breathtaking, especially from the 3 verandas.The kitchen was a joy to prepare meals, the beds were so comfy with sparkling clean linens.Both baths are awesome and spacious.
Our favorite time of day was enjoyed in the morning on the veranda watching the glorious sunrise.
We highly recommend Laughing Bird Caye for a day trip for snorkeling and diving.We also recommend
riding bikes into the village shopping for fresh fish, vegetables and fruits. One of the highlights in the village was the welcoming and gracious villagers.
A don't miss is Tutti Fuitti, they serve the best frozen yogurt and gelatto ever. The Secret Garden restaurant was another winner.
Overall our experience was 5 star hands down, we will return.
We recently spent 5 days in unit 1C at Los Porticos Villas and loved it. Our two young children loved the location - right on (essentially) a private beach with calm, warm, reef protected waters. As an added benefit, because the unit is literally ocean front, the steady ocean breezes made air conditioning unnecessary. As for the unit itself, it is spacious and comfortable and the photos, if anything, do not accurately convey just how amazing the views are!
As an added bonus, the onsite manager (Barry) was a great resource - even helping us find bikes and life vests that would actually fit my kids.
Would definitely recommend this unit without hesitation!
