Compelling Reasons to Visit Mariposa Beach Resort in Placencia in August
Always wanted to vacation in a treehouse? Placencia Belize in August is your gateway to a lofty paradise.
For savvy travelers who seek a unique vacation experience in a place that’s devoid of crowds, there’s only one place to head during the month of August: Mariposa Beach Resort on the lovely peninsula of Placencia.
You’ll have plenty of room to spread out, claim your place on the beach, dine on a delectable assortment of international dishes and do it all within full view of the Caribbean Sea, a body of water that’s so serene, you can catch up on the sleep you’ve been missing by listening to the waves brush across the sandy beach each night.
Revel in your treehouse accommodation
By choosing a tree house rather than a traditional lodging, your August vacation gets off to a unique start. These lofty digs give guests views of the Mariposa garden below that are soothing and since the property is small, you’re guaranteed plenty of privacy. Equally delightful are lush, tropical treehouse interiors that must be seen to be believed.
There are six treehouse designs that accommodate everyone from couples to families. If you don’t think your kids will be thrilled (and even behave better) by being the only kids in their crowd who spent their vacation in a treehouse, you don’t know them very well. Talk about bragging rights!
Leave the property if you insist
The sea lulls you to sleep. The Breezeway Restaurant feeds your tummy and your soul. The resort pool invites you to splash like you mean it and since it’s August, low summer still prevail, so you save enough money to shop the Placencia peninsula from top to bottom and still come home with money in your wallet.
But perhaps you need a change of pace that introduces you to a few of Placencia’s most impressive natural treasures. Here are three adventures you can book through your host that are guaranteed to thrill and excite you:
-Inspect the interior of the ATM Cave where Maya priests conducted mysterious rituals 1,000+ years ago
-Snorkel Silk Cayes Marine Reserve to visit turtles, rays, sharks and exotic fish in every color of the rainbow
-See Belize’s largest Maya tomb—Xunantunich—for an above-the-ground experience that’s unforgettable.
If you’ve been seeking a respite that’s far from the ordinary and you have no desire to do anything more physical than relocate from your lounge chair to your lofty accommodation, you’ve found Valhalla before the rainy season officially arrives.
That said, the sound of rain beating down on the roof of a treehouse is as relaxing as the sound of the surf washing up on the shore that lulls you to sleep, so you won’t be the first Mariposa guest to welcome those showers, especially since they disappear so fast!
