So this place is incredible. The only problem was that we showed up a bit later than we planned, and Leo was out for the day and we couldn't schedule a trip for the following morning. We had a car, so instead he gave us directions up to cockscomb basin wildlife reserve for hiking (worked perfectly).
This place is relaxing, attentive, beaufitul. Leo is friendly, and attentive, but not in your face. My wife read about Jonny Cakes and Fry Jacks in our travel book. We asked Leo about them and he says without hesitation "You want Jonny Cakes tomorrow, we'll make them for you, no problem." It's not on the menu or anything, they'll just make you some food if you ask for it.
Everyone is friendly -- even the dogs. We took the kayaks out to an island off the shore one day, also fun...but wake up early.
The place is 7 miles from town, so make sure to rent a car, or be prepared for taxis. Placencia isn't walkable or bikeable.
We went to Mango's next door one night and they had a killer band.
All the cabins are great. They got hot at night, but with the fans and the breeze it wasn't bad. Honestly, just the perfect get away. I almost don't want to write a good review because I don't want others to find out about how relaxing and perfect this spot is.
