We rented a golf cart for the day in Placencia and drove up the coast through Seine Bight, Maya Beach and ended up at the Belize Ocean Club for lunch and a refreshing dip in their pool. The golf cart was around $40 for the day and all their carts are new and in excellent condition. You will need to... More

We stayed in one of their cabana's about a week ago. The owners Lucky and Erin are fantastic, in fact their whole staff is great. They are very hands on and suggested Percy for the Monkey River tour to us. He was the best. The cabana was clean and very comfortable. They were very helpful. I would be very happy... More

Captain Jaks is hands down my favorite vacation spot! I loved how you got to mingle with the locals and learn about their village. The shopping and entertainment was just a short walk away (loved the Tipsy Tuna!). We did a fishing tour, monkey river tour and snorkeling. Durmin was an EXCELLENT guide with his fishing skills. I have no... More

We love Captain Jacks, the owners Lucky and Erin are the best hosts you could have. We've stayed there 4 times they are very helpful in arranging tours, and the place is very close to stores and restaurants. This year they were building another cabana, it was really interesting to see how the building is done in Belize. Oliver the... More

We actually stayed at a cabana down the street but next time we will definitely be staying at Captain Jak's. The office was sooooo helpful when we went to speak with them about renting a golf cart. They told us about the island (dos and donts), called a cab for us, recommended awesome excursions, etc! Anything you need, they know... More

We didn't rent a cabana but got a guide to bring us around. When we walked into Captain Jaks, we knew we found a legit tour guide. Jason was beyond the best guide we could have ever asked for. His knowledge of the country was mind blowing and was a huge part of us falling in love with belize! We... More

Erin and Lucky are two of the kindest people you can meet. Their place is right across the street from the beach on a lagoon which is quite beautiful. It's comfortable, cozy and very clean. I ended up spending a good bit of time hanging out with them and friends of theirs who will be moving to Placencia. I enjoyed... More

We did not stay at the Captain Jak's cabanas but had a perfect experience renting a golf cart from them. We were staying up the road at the Belize Ocean Club. When we checked in at BOC Captain Jak's had already delivered our golf cart. It was new and in perfect condition. Additionally, their communication while working out the transaction... More

Stayed for 9 days in late May. Our hosts Erin & Lucky were very friendly and made us feel welcom and relaxed. Our cabana was equipped with everything we needed and was just a few steps from the lagoon jetty. The tropical garden was a lovely setting and busy with humming birds, squirrels and iguana to mention a few. Ceiling... More

Captain Jak's has its own private marina which allows you to leave from your door step for diving, sailing, fishing, Caye hopping, kayaking, or snorkeling. Zip lining, Mayan Ruins and cave tubing aren’t far away either. The owners of villa resort live on the property and they are some of the best hosts you will find in Belize. Make sure to ask them about their sailing trips. There is nothing like sailing with Lucky and Erin on the warm Caribbean Sea, anchoring at sunset and BBQing the fresh catch of the day while drinking their famous rum punch.You must experience Captain Jak’s. ... more   less
