Why You Will Love Staying at Mariposa Beach Resort in Placencia Belize
Located on the southern tip of Belize, the Placencia Peninsula is one of the finest places to explore the myriad sea life in the Caribbean. Home to the traditional and quaint fishing town of Placencia Village, this destination offers a glimpse of a simpler life without the intrusion of modern sensibilities. But just because you’re immersing yourself in the Placencia community doesn’t mean that you can’t treat yourself. Mariposa is one of the most luxurious resorts in the region, and it offers you the opportunity to be spoiled and treated like absolute royalty.
When you choose to stay at Placencia, you have two main options for lodgings. The Caribbean View rooms offer modern accommodations with French doors that open out on absolutely stunning views of white beaches and the gentle waves of the Caribbean Sea. Then there are the treehouses which offer a nice change of pace from traditional vacation living. Perched in the two acres of forest that covers the Mariposa resort, they’re nicely secluded and enmeshed in the rich natural habitat of the region. If you’re visiting on honeymoon or an anniversary, they serve as secluded getaways that allow you to get the private time you want with that special someone. Mariposa is pet-friendly and comes equipped with all the modern amenities like Wi-Fi, so you don’t have to sacrifice the privileges you want for the sake of simpler living.
And while Placencia Village and the surrounding areas are well worth exploring, you could spend your entire time at Mariposa and never get bored. The spacious pool sits right alongside the ocean, and it’s attached to Mariposa’s on-site bar and restaurant. The Breezeway offers everything you could want in one place. The knowledgeable bartenders can draw from an extensive selection of imported liquor to mix up any drink you could imagine, and there are bottled wines from Chile, Argentina, California, and France available. The restaurant’s chef Aron trained three years in Italy and offers an extensive menu of intercontinental fare that draws from Belizean traditions for inspiration. Fresh produce is brought in from neighboring farms to ensure only the highest quality ingredients are used in the daily specials.
Regardless of your reason for traveling to Placencia, you owe it to yourself to book a room at the Mariposa Beach Resort. Whether you’re looking to explore the region or simply spend all time lounging poolside with a drink, the helpful and friendly staff is ready to provide you with everything you need. We look forward to seeing you soon.
