Maya Beach is located midway down the 16 mile Placencia Peninsula in Southern Belize. Along the east side of the peninsula are white sandy beaches and the Caribbean Sea.
The west side is a mangrove filled lagoon with the majestic Maya Mountains in the background, towards Guatemala.
We are approx. 5 miles north of the Placencia airstrip, and 8 miles north of Placencia village. The main roads are paved and the side roads are well maintained and graded. We are mid-peninsula with a well stocked Belizean grocery store, world class restaurants,and a couple of beach bars located within walking distance. We are far enough away though that you can enjoy peace and quiet, while enjoying the feel of the breeze and the many different exotic bird sounds. The peninsula is flat and lends to easy comfortable bike riding, running and walking.
Flights come into the country several times a day and there are 2 smaller airlines that fly from Belize City to Placencia.It is about a 30 to 45 minute flight. You can rent a car in Belize City and enjoy the drive through the Maya Mountains on the Hummingbird Highway. The drive takes about three hours. You can also rent a vehicle in Placencia at the airport.

There is a washer/dryer in “the basement”. Your kitchen comes equipped with refrigerator, microwave, toaster, gas stove, coffee maker,dishes and glasses, cooking utensils, sugar, salt, pepper, and spices. A nice tradition has been started by former occupants who have left dry goods
for further use, a “pay it forward” mentality that works for everyone. As stated above, there is a grocery store just down the road There are several other grocery stores and farmers markets in Seine Bight and Placencia.

About Julie and Doug
We purchased this wonderful place because we love to dive ,snorkel, sun and eat well. We found the Placencia Peninsula to fill these requirements and then some. We love the people and the place.
Julie and Doug purchased this house in 2005
Why Julie and Doug chose Placencia
Although not on the beach, the property is protected and quiet. It is literally less than a 2 minute bike ride to the beaches. The view is of the lagoon and mountains. Beautiful sunsets.
What makes this house unique
