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.
Water temperatures maintain an average of 79-84 degrees. Local businesses offers daily diving, snorkeling, fishing, sailing, cave tubing, jungle tours, or visiting Maya Ruins. Wherever your interest lies you can find something to do in Placencia. It is still very much a small 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 and golf cart can be arrange for rentals. 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.

About Los Porticos Villas
Our family first had the opportunity to vacation in Belize in November of 2008. From our first day in Placencia we realized that we had discovered something very special and would return again and again. We are absolutely thrilled to share our Villa at the Los Porticos Resort. My husband and I were amazed by the water skiing, boating, sailing, and snorkeling/diving while on vacation. We are now excited to share our piece of paradise and our love of the water with our three small boys (ages 5, 4, and 2) as they grow. We have fallen in love with Placencia, and we hope you'll love it too.

Why Los Porticos Villas chose Stann Creek
This is a one of a kind location! If you take 50 steps from the front door of our unit your toes are in the ocean! It's a perfect combination of luxury accommodations in a small village. The locals are extremely friendly and in Placencia it is safe to drink the water.

The three of us stayed in this condo for 15 days. It was very comfortable, spacious and quiet. There are three bathrooms in the condo. The showers were huge, and so were the bathtubs. The outdoor furniture was used quite a bit. The location was perfect. The condos are located right on the beach. The infinity pool was beautiful. The view was great. The staff was awesome. The office staff was very helpful and went out of their way to help us arrange for a car, a golf cart as well as tours. The outdoor staff was very friendly and even helped us get some fresh coconut water. The condo came with two bikes which we used several times to go to the village. The place was very quiet but also very friendly. The village was great for restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and an ice cream parlor. The pier was great for fishing. The taxi drivers were very accommodating and very friendly. We hope to return to Belize someday!!
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the review. We hope to see you again soon!
Belize is a wonderful vacation and this condo is superb. It is located right on the ocean with a semi-private infinity pool right outside the door. The condo is spacious with nice furniture, large bathrooms and a big kitchen. The managers went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We did not have a car but taxis are readily available and the village is within walking distance. Restaurants are plentiful and the spirit of hospitality and graciousness is alive and well in Placencia Village. We are eager to return to this tropical paradise and stay in this lovely condo again.
Peaceful, Restful, Perfect!
My family traveled to Belize for the first time this winter and absolutely loved it! This condo is beautiful, spacious, and well-appointed. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms and kitchen are modern with great decor, the grounds are clean and manicured, and the beach and water are amazing. Having access to the plunge pool is really convenient, especially if traveling with children who love to swim. This condo is the perfect place to simply relax, read a book, and visit. However, there are also plenty of activities to do like scuba, snorkeling, and site seeing, and the staff is very helpful in setting up the excursions. The center of Placencia is only a couple miles from Los Porticos, with handfuls of great restaurants, coffee shops, and bars. It's an easy bike ride, a somewhat long but pleasant walk, or just a quick taxi ride away. Whether you want to focus on rest and rejuvenation, or whether you want to be adventurous, Los Porticos/Placencia is the perfect place. We can't wait to return!
Fabulous condo in Placencia
My family stayed in this beautiful condo for a week. It was perfect. When we were not diving, snorkeling, hiking to waterfalls in Jaguar country, we would lounge by the pool, jumping in every 10 minutes to cool off or to just play around with the kids. We had been traveling for a week and a half prior and were pleased to find a beautiful kitchen, plenty of stores, fish market and produce stands in town a quick cab ride away. We rode the bikes or walked into town easily. The property was dreamy. I felt like we walked into paradise with fresh flowers everywhere. The other residents/guests were so friendly and helpful.

Karen and I had a wonderful stay with the owners. Our visit was relaxing and enjoyable. Just what the doctor ordered. The accommodations were great. Whether fixing meals or going out to the local eating establishments, the food was inexpensive and very good. Drinks at our favorite waterholes were very tasty. Everyone we meet was very freindly and ehlpful. The side trips we took (sailing and a boat trip up Monkey River) were well worth it.
