The 2-hour drive along the Hummingbird Highway from Caves Branch to Placencia is one of the most scenic drives in Belize. Wending its way along the foothills of the Maya Mountains, the paved road twists and turns, up and over valleys and hilltops passing through local villages, lush rainforests and waterfalls, and miles of citrus farms. Take time stopping at your leisure for short walks to natural sites, and at any number of fun community businesses such as Kropf's Bakery, or Miss Bertha's famous tamale stand, and time permitting make a tour of Marie Sharp's hot sauce factory, a brand you see everywhere in Belize, and throughout the world.
Arrive near the laid back Garifuna town of Placencia at the beach, kick off your shoes, and enjoy the warm Caribbean Sea or relax in a hammock watching the sun set and soaking up the salt air. Your room at Chabil Mar Villas is a boutique, beach-front property with a sea-facing veranda, a private pier, two small pools, lush gardens, and just 5 minutes from Placencia. Time permitting this afternoon, hop on a bike, jump in a kayak, or head into the lively Creole Caribbean town. Upon check-in at Chabil Mar consider booking additional activities during your stay like reef and fly fishing, and SCUBA diving (not included in trip cost).
