Placencia Belize: Best Place to Travel in 2016
Placencia, a small peninsula on Belize’s south-east coast best known for its white sandy beaches and proximity to pristine rain forests and the world’s second largest barrier reef, was recently named as one of Travel and Leisure’s top destinations for the upcoming year.
The recognition, though it comes as no surprise since the destination has been known for its award winning luxury resorts and premium guest satisfaction for many years, still holds significant weight. Travel and Leisure is an award winning magazine owned by Time Inc. and to be chosen as a destination of the year is a very distinguished honor.
Destinations must live up to high standards and must be among the most elite spots, not only in natural beauty, but also in terms of tourism infrastructure, accommodation availability, guest satisfaction and every aspect that goes into creating an unforgettable travel experience.
Being a top destination of the year means providing an experience that will create memories to last a life-time; that is exactly what Placencia provides.
Travelers who subscribe to the publication and haven’t heard of Belize before are likely to flock to Placencia to experience the cozy tropical sunsets, fine dining and adventure filled activities for themselves and are sure to have the time of their lives.
There are many resorts to choose from in Placencia but one would be hard pressed to find one more all-encompassing of Placencia’s best qualities than Robert’s Grove.
