We stopped in to the Tourism Center, to see what they had for information for the area. The ladies there were very helpful, giving us some ideas of things to do, and giving us some websites to check out & some brochures. I'm glad we stopped in!

We stop here every visit to pick up a copy of the Placencia Breeze and check out any happenings. Sometimes, if there is an event like Lobsterfest or the Mistletoe Ball you can buy tickets for a fun raffle and a chance to win cool prizes. They have several books about the area for sale as well as some gently used books you can use and swap back for if you need a beach read.

The staff was very friendly and answered all of our questions. You need to check the hours of operation because it was not open a few times that we were needing help.

The staff is very pleasant but we really did not obtain much information here. The Tourism Centre is rather small and you need to keep your eyes peeled if you want to find it as it is tucked away off Placencia Road.

Not only do the friendly ladies provide travelers and small business owners with lots of information about area tours, hotels, restaurants and things to do but they also serve the community by hosting great festivals and events. We are lucky to have such hard working people in the community! Can not wait for the Holiday ball!

Upon arriving in Placencia our first order of business was to find the tourism center. It is a small out of the way place but packed with information. We met Natasha and she was very helpful. She provided us with a map of the area, mentioned restaurants we should try, things to do & see and more. Very glad we stopped in. Thank you Natasha for making our time in Belize rewarding.

Maps and brochures of the area. Some free, others you had to pay for. Right across the street from the Scotiabank, easy to locate.

This place can answer any inquiry! Run by the local tourism industry group, it has tons of information to share. Need a phone number for a restaurant? Want to find out the bus schedule over the holidays? How about tickets for ferry to Honduras? Or the timing of the Hokey Pokey ferry to Independence? Bank holidays?

The office is just a few steps off Main Street across from the Scotia bank. However only open weekdays, from 9 to 5. You can also pick up the Placencia Breeze there. The Breeze is the monthly newspaper which is also loaded with info and happenings on the peninsula. I think you can sign up to get the Breeze digitally too, so you can be aware of upcoming events that you don't want to miss.

This office organizes three major events throughout the year; Annual Fishing Tournament in September, Arts Festival in February and the Mistletoe Ball in December. It is also involved with the June Lobsterfest.
