Villa 6C at Los Porticos Villas
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 Villas. The resort is located a short distance from Placencia Village. 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.

This is lovely main floor condo unit located in the centre of the complex. The pool was 30 steps away and the ocean was about 60 steps. The unit is very spacious and very nicely decorated. We were with another couple and found the unit plenty big for all of us. Lots of room in the dining area and in the living room. Very nice covered veranda had a table with six chairs along with two lounge chairs. Nice pool with a little in water sit up bar area. You can walk out on to the beach and walk all the way to downtown Placencia, which is shorter than using the road and whole lot cooler. You need some form of transportation to get into Placencia as it is at least a mile away. Golf cart rentals are available. We had a car rental as we drove in from Belize city, which by the way was a scenic drive and well worth it (3 1/2 hours and you want do it in daylight). It was nice to have a vehicle to visit sites that were further away like the coskscomb reserve and mayan ruins. Overall loved the place and was one of the nicest places in Placencia. We highly recommend it.
The condo complex is in a great location, near town but not too close. A bike is required to go to/from town with groceries. Bikes are not included with this condo and quite costly to rent. I highly recommend renting as we had a great time on them.We had plenty of room in the unit for the four of us.The condo was exactly as shown in the pictures. I can't say enough good comments about the management team, thanks for everything!! I was initially quite disappointed that there wasn't even a broom or dish soap provided.Not even garbage bags!! When renting a condo you like to treat it as your own home and be respectful, it was a difficult task without even the basics. We quickly purchased what we needed in town. There was light housekeeping provided once a week. The pool area is very relaxing, with a lovely young bartender "Lilly" at the the swim-up bar. The grounds are kept immaculate by the staff. We used SPLASH dive centre for several excursions. This is a great place, not too many people around like some of the all-inclusives in a near-by country.
