Like most restaurants and bars there is some sort of happy hour later in the afternoon or sometimes all evening. Tipsy Tuna usually had a chicken wing offer. It's a great setting, right on the beach at the waters edge. You can get a nice...More

The staff went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed ourselves. The drinks and food were great. Upstairs you will get a great ocean view and cool off in the breeze.

Tuti-fruity is possibly the best gelato I tried. Dont miss the local fruit sour sap flavour. We tried atleast flavours which were all natural. Purple monkey bar --- The village karaoke place. Offseason it was a dull afair with the Village drunk picking on us for nobody else paid him much attention. Tipsy tuna -- Great caribbean music troup but horrible service. In slwo season it took the waiter 1 hr to get the order. We gave up at the end and decided to take our patronage elsewhere. ...More

We're a family of four (two girls 10 & 13). We came to Placencia in the pursuit of a family adventure and got one! We rented a car from Belize City so we had flexibility to see the area along with traveling to Cockscomb and Bocawina on our own terms. The people there are fantastic and friendly. There really isn't much infrastructure outside of the Village. If this is your first time to the area I'd recommend staying close to the Village. Places we visited: Ranguana Caye, Silk...More

Fishing Trip Yesterday (4 Replies)
Yesterday was the guys fishing day with Hank, a guide I read about here on tripadvisor while reading up on fishing tours. He was great, picked us up right here on the beach and spent a full day out on the water catching snapper and barracuda. When my husband asked for ideas on how to cook the fish, Hank ended up suggesting he cook it for us and stay for dinner. So we had an amazing fish dinner, cooked in foil over charcoal. Hank told us many stories about the history of Placencia and Belize....More

Thanks for posting, sound like a great way to spend what was a very hot day! Fishing in the south is first class and much less pressured than in the more heavily fished northern waters of Belize - although these are great fishing grounds too.
