Placencia, a small quiet peninsula in southern Belize, is an ideal place to practice snorkeling. Nearby natural attractions include the Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System, Gladden Spit and Silk Keys, and the Pájaro Risueño National Park Key, where you can swim among fish of different sizes and colors as though you were in a giant, harmonious, and protected natural aquarium. Snorkeling calms the mind and leads to a state of total delight. It´s no wonder this pristine Caribbean Sea was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
