A little about Placencia

Placencia is a small village located at the end of a peninsula in Southern Belize. A one time laid back fishing village which was isolated from the rest of the country is rapidly changing due to the influences of tourism and development. In this photo blog I hope to capture and catalog the essence of Placencia as it was in years gone by, as it is today and what it will evolve to be in the future.

  6. Great photos Fiona! Just the thing I needed on our first day back in the snow and gloom of a Northern winter. After 2 weeks “on the peninsula”, your pics were a welcome reminider of color and warmth, away from this cold outpost.

  8. Hi Fiona, Your Mum sent me the link to your photo pages. They are great! i have a photo of a fisherman throwing his cast net that I took in Guyana – I was SO proud of working out that I had to click before he threw. Gosh over 12 years ago – way before digital cameras.

    Anyway – thanks for sharing your photos. As well as Kai fishing, I loved the red bird. I’d like to see more bird photos.

    Thanks Again

  15. Hi Fiona, love the pics. I would like to ask you what´s the best way to get to Placencia by land (no car) ? Im in Nicaragua , and i know i can get to Guatemala city ,but I can´t seem to find info on how to get from there to Placencia. And what about accomodations, can you recommend some affordable hotels ?
    Thanks
