Unit 8D at Los Porticos Villas near Placencia Village. The beach is just out of your door, footsteps away! 2 bedroom , 2.5 bath condo, tastefully decorated.
We invite you to experience the tropical luxury of Belize from our spacious new (2009) beachfront condominium. Belize boasts the world's second largest Barrier Reef as well as numerous small islands (called Cayes) which offers unparalleled diving and snorkeling opportunities in the clear Caribbean.
Local businesses offer daily trips diving, snorkeling, fishing, sailing, cave tubing, jungle tours, or visiting Mayan Ruins. Wherever your interest lies you can find something to do in Placencia. It is still very much a small Central American village untainted by large scale tourism which is what makes it so unique.
Fly into Belize City (BZE), from there it's a short 35 minute flight into Placencia. A 5 minute cab ride from the airport will deliver you to Los Porticos. The resort is located a short distance from Placencia Village where bike rentals and golf cart rental can be arranged. The village contains many open air restaurants serving the freshest seafood as well as featuring local and international cuisine.
U.S. currency is accepted everywhere at an exchange rate of 2:1. English is spoken throughout the village, but if you stay long enough you might be fortunate enough to pick up the Caribbean Creole which is the preferred language of the local residents.

The villa was large and very clean! Modern features, and very spacious! Air conditioned, stainless steel appliances, dishwasher and in suite laundry make it feel like home away from home. Local art is displayed on the walls and can be found in town. The large balcony overlooking the clear aqua blue ocean is breathtaking and an amazing place to lounge, watch pelicans soar and have meals on. The balcony over looks the beach, the ocean, the beautiful pier at Turtle Inn and the pool. We made so many memories there such as snorkeling with wild dolphins, turtles, large sported eagle rays and sting rays; we cooked and ate our large ocean jack,barracuda,king mackerel,snappers,and Bonita; made friends with the locals and the residents; danced the night away for the Easter long weekend festivities in town; and experienced the local cuisine! Everyone is so friendly and welcoming there as well! Had a wonderful stay!
This villa is beautiful and exactly as advertised which I find isn't always the case with other properties. The amenities in the condo are great comforts to have and help you to relax when you do choose to be indoors. The view of the ocean from the balcony is beautiful and the sound of the waves put me to sleep every night. Placencia has something for everyone. The diving/snorkeling is spectacular, the people are friendly, and the food delicious. Dealing with the owners was great and hey truly care about your experience there. I highly recommend staying here on your next vacation.
I stayed at this condo for 8 nights April 2015, and I was blown away!!! It's gorgeous, spacious, bright, impeccably clean, and tastefully decorated. Everything I needed was there; AC, kitchen with all the amenities, washing machine and dryer, floaties for the pool, and bicycles.
The balcony overlooked the ocean and had a large table for meals, and 2 loungers. I spent most of my time out there :)
The owners of other condos were staying at the villa, and they were super friendly and welcoming.
I would recommend this condo 100%!!!
What a thrill! Perched on the second story balcony, sipping my early morning coffee, watching the dolphins perform! The ocean vista is superb and the condo itself, immaculate and not wanting for anything - very comfortable. All the amenities were available to prepare our own economical lunches and snacks, having done our marketing in the village. Being 'foodies', we thoroughly enjoyed the numerous choices of great restaurants to choose from for dinner; ranging from casual to formal. The local markets offer all kinds of local curiosities and wares in all price ranges; delightful shopping and browsing. Placencia Village maintains it's seaside flavor and charm from another time and is refreshing for seasoned sun seekers; the atmosphere is both hospitable and relaxed. Day excursions, further afield were easily available, affordable and intriguing. Be it touring a banana plantation or visiting 1000 year old ruins and many more. If the preference is for ocean recreation, snorkeling, scuba, sailing, swimming and so on, all is available and right out the front door. Ours was a girl's getaway and did we ever! This was the precise spot to hunker down, relax and soak up the sun. Not sure that I would recommend this location to the party crowd, but certainly to anyone looking for anything but, this is the spot. Its one of those places you'd like to keep secret! Hope to return soon.
My husband and I had the pleasure to stay at this beachfront piece of paradise. The condo is very modern, has all the amenities you could ask for, spotless and in a perfect location. My favorite part of the condo is the enormous deck that faces the ocean....nothing better than reclining on a lounger with a cool drink and good book and a magnificent book. If you are looking for party style vaca (like Cancun) this is not the place for you but if you are into seeing the sites, snorkelling, scuba diving, eating at excellent quality restaurants and soaking in the rays..this is the place for you. Definitely will use this place again!
