The Placencia

Placencia Rd. , Maya Beach, Stann Creek, Belize

Transplant an upscale, gated Florida condo community to Belize, and you might end up with something like The Placencia, with tennis courts, four restaurants (though only one or two may be open at a time), and the country's largest swimming pool. There's a sandy 1,000-foot beach with a dock that goes out 200 feet into the Caribbean and a small casino. The suites and villas have whirlpool baths and tile floors. The Capriccio restaurant serves French food, seafood, and some Belizean dishes, while the Palm Terrace is an adjoining open-air dining area.
