We came to Placencia in one day from Flores, Guatemala, and since we knew it was going to be a long day, we elected to have a van pick us up at the airport (pricey, but worth it). The pickup was also arranged through Caribbean Tours and Travel. Their office is on the first floor with the Yellow House being the second floor. This was super convenient because we could pop in whenever we wanted to ask questions about tours or the town or just to chat with Aretha (she´s awesome!).
Placencia itself is amazing, and while I´m sure it´s nice to stay out of town in one of the fancy (and expensive) resorts, we LOVED the location of the Yellow House. It is literally in the middle of town, so we could walk everywhere. My only complaint was that the house didn´t have a coffee pot, but I ended up buying one rather than drink instant coffee every morning (you´re welcome!).
This place was an AMAZING value. Why would you spend more money for a hotel when you can have a nice, clean house with a full kitchen and 2 decks?
