Placencia is my favorite place to kick back and relax outside of the jungle, while providing the relaxation of the village life and long beaches it is also a close drive from Bocawina National Park.

When in the village, a set of wheels isn’t always essential [For those who are willing to walk] but if you are interested in a golf cart, motorbike, bicycle, or kayak check out Captain Jak’s.
When it comes to food, I’ll tell you the truth…go to Rick’s Cafe as much as you can. You can eat there every single meal and have a different flavor each time, whether you want pizza, sandwiches, pastas, BBQ, sushi (shhhh..don’t tell him I said that, it’s a secret), or one of his legendary specials… there is not a bad thing that comes out of his quaint cafe on the sidewalk.
