Here you have some advices for the trip from the International Airport of Belize to Swan Villas:
Well… From the International Airport to Placencia there is no a big tourist areas, so the restaurants that you are going to find are more “locals”.
If you don’t want to enter to Belize City ( you don’t need it) the best option is 15 miles ( approximately) before to reach Belmopan. Around 45 minutes from the Airport. The name is Cheers (mile 31 ¼), and it’s on the road, in the left side.
If you want to take your time, there is an easy activity that it’s going to like you very much. It’s is the small Zoo of Belize, but it’s really marvelous. If you want to spend 1.5 hours, this is the moment.
Also, before you arrive to BMP ( 2 miles before), close to the airstrip, you have ArtBox, mile 46, a beautiful shop with a bar.
But if you want to wait to arrive to Belmopan, although it’s the capital, you don’t have too much to choose: Blue Moon ( in the roundabout) and Corkers ( Close to the bus station), could be two of the options.
From Belmopan to Placencia you don’t have nothing serious. The first hour is a beautiful mountain and jungle landscape. Almost at the end of this mountain ( one hour from Belmopan) you have “casita del amor” in the right to the road, where you have a good coffee, smoothies, omelets, sandwiches… etc.
And from here, you have one hour more to Placencia ( Maya Beach). So at the end is 3 hours trip.
We are visible from the road, in the right of the road, at mile 16.5, you will can see our spectacular gatehouse.
