Traveling to Placencia by shuttle
Placencia Transfer via shuttle
Belize City does not exactly top the list of tourist destinations in Belize. In fact, many visitors choose to bypass the country’s only major urban area via Belize shuttle service. This may be because the country’s main attractions are natural and nautical, rendering superfluous a prolonged visit to its only metropolis. BZ (Belize) Shuttle is available to transport you to San Pedro Express and other water taxi companies that have boats going out to Caye Caulker and San Pedro from the city often. They also cater to shuttle transfer for the ADO Bus to or from Mexico.
Thing to do in Placencia
Placencia, a true beach-holiday strip on the mainland, is enduringly popular with North American expats and tourists.
Placencia can be a lot of fun, but how you may feel about it really depends on what you’re looking for. If it’s laid-back ambience, varied accommodations and some of the best restaurants in Southern Belize, this beachfront hangout is for you. If it’s off-the-beaten-path adventure and cheaper living you’re after, it might serve well as a place to check out for a day or two, organize a tour and move on.
High season in Placencia begins the week before Christmas and lasts until late April. During the full moons of May and June the town hops as whale sharks come to spawn in the nearby waters. BZ (Belize) Shuttle Service provides transportation all year to Placencia.
Shuttle to Placencia
A fully paved 27 mile road heading off the Southern Hwy passing through Maya Beach and Seine Bight to the tip of the peninsula. Most Reputable Resorts and Hotels are found in Maya Beach or Placencia Village. Belize Shuttle Service would be happy to pick-up or drop-off-taking you directly to your resort.
Shuttle going to Placencia from San Ignacio Town would travel three major highways starting off with the Western Highway driving northeast to the Capital city of Belmopan. From Belize City Water Taxi or the Belize International Airport PGIA, the shuttle would be travelling southwest to the capital. From Belmopan City you will take the hummingbird Highway, then on to the southern highway, traveling past the Hopkins junction and the Maya Center area. Finally you arrive at a round-a-bout where the shuttle will turn off on the Placencia Road. At that point you’re about half hour from Placencia Village, which is at the very end of the peninsula.
The Shuttles to Dangriga Town or Hopkins also follow this route. However, they are located northeast of Placencia.
