Placencia

Once a humble fishing village, Placencia has been transformed into a leading tourist destination, with its focus primarily on outdoor activity and natural exploration.
Explore hidden gems such as Fishing Charters & Tours and Placencia Fellowship. Step out of Placencia with an excursion to Scuba & Snorkeling in Hopkins--about 1h 5 min away. There's still lots to do: step off the mainland to explore Laughing Bird Caye National Park, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, and explore the galleries of Lola Art Studio.

To see ratings, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Placencia trip planner.

London, UK to Placencia is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 6 hours traveling from London to Placencia. Prepare for warmer weather when traveling from London in September: high temperatures in Placencia hover around 37°C and lows are around 27°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Mon) early enough to catch the flight to Lighthouse Reef Atoll.
