DREAMING ON Belize Catamaran update for sailing this year. Moreover, beaches, fishing, and fun await your arrival in beautiful Belize. Here is your update to COVID protocol and getting to the home base of Placencia to experience its reefs, beaches, and bars.
Placencia Belize: A Wonderful Socially Distant Destination
Belize has taken very specific steps to control the spread of COVID. Case numbers are still low and land, sea, and air border controls are regularly modified as required. The vaccination program is proceeding well. The Government has just passed a new rule that requires anyone requiring access to a Government Building, either to provide proof of vaccination or a negative test result taken within the previous 72 hours.
Southern Belize has the distinct advantage that it is so much less crowded than the popular and very busy areas of Belize City, Ambergris Caye, and Caye Caulker. So, in our opinion, it is much “COVID safer.”
Traveling from Belize City International Airport to Placencia has always been easy on either Maya Island Air or Tropic Air, our local commuter airlines.
However, with the recent opening of a new road connecting the airport directly to the Western Highway avoiding the outskirts of Belize City, the road travel time to Placencia is now 2.5 to 3 hours. This gets people out of the airport quickly and into a safer social distancing environment. The drive also takes guests through some wonderful, forested mountain scenery.
You can choose to stop along the way. There are some wonderful jungle lodges to break the journey. We offer some great Surf and Turf packages!
Another advantage of taking a road trip is the door-to-door service. The driver meets you at the International Airport Arrivals and delivers you directly to the hotel or yacht in Placencia. No waiting around in the main terminal for commuter flight connection or rechecking bags on and off a commuter flight, then a taxi.
Southern Belize offers spectacular turquoise waters, amazing snorkeling, superb scuba-diving opportunities, reef fishing, deep water fishing, (no Ciguatera in Belize), and magnificent fly fishing.
Placencia is a wonderful small village with many choices of eateries and bars when ashore. It is so much less busy than Ambergris Caye in the north.
The number of international flights operating to Belize has expanded with the addition of Alaska Airlines and Frontier Airlines.
- American Airlines flies from Miami, Charlotte, Dallas, and Los Angeles
- United Airlines flies from Houston, Newark, Denver, Chicago, Los Angeles
- Delta flies from Atlanta
- Southwest Airlines from Houston, Denver
- Alaska Airlines from Los Angeles, Seattle
- Frontier Airlines from Orlando, Denver
- WestJet from Toronto
