Placencia is a perfect location to spot frolicking dolphins from the comfort of a palapa-shaded beach chair. Or you can swim with the big fish in Belize. Plunge into the brink and swim with the whale sharks as they migrate through Belizean waters from February to June annually. The biggest fish in the world, whale sharks grow up to 50 feet long and weigh up to 50,000 pounds. And that's no fish tale!
Endless land-based activities in Placencia include excursions to the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary , the world's largest jaguar preserve; horseback riding in the rainforest; and expeditions to Mayan ruins and caves. Birders, beachcombers and butterfly fanatics will discover great finds, too, in the tropical paradise of Belize.

Gourmands can nosh at any number of local, upscale eateries, including Francis Ford Coppola's Italian restaurant at his “Turtle Inn” . Rumor has it that the world-famous director, of “Godfather” fame, will make you an offer for a piece of pizza you can't refuse!
Once overlooked in favor of Costa Rica and Panama, Belize now tops the charts as one of the most desirable and affordable retirement and second-home destinations. Recognized as one of the last unspoiled places on earth, this tiny country located just 200 miles south of Cancun, offers an opportunity for real estate investors and homeowners to cash in on the Belize property market while it is still in its infancy.
