Choose from one of the tropical garden private cabanas, two-story cottages, and/or private villa. Captain Jak’s offers accommodations for the back packing adventurer, couples, families, and/or small and large groups. Captain Jak’s is a hidden oasis, while still being located only steps away from the village and the Caribbean sea. 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.

I Can't say enough about the scuba trip we had! Arthur and the team took us out to Silk Caye and it was incredible. The three of us were a little nervous but Arthur made us feel so comfortable and was so responsive to us. I highly recommend Captain Jak's! The team also gave us

Going to the Catskills as a kid, the Captain Jaks reminds me of the Bungalow colony I summered in. Clean, spacious, nice clean equipped full size kitchen and a simple bathroom. Plus Wifi (which was not a dream back then). Had use of a pool. Fans, No A/C. Friendly staff. Big help

The cabana was great. Very clean. Bugs are always an issue at such places, though. ery friendly owners, they allowed us to check-in late at night when we arrived. They also had a summer special, and was very economical. It is also located on the lagoon side, so very quite. Enjoy

My daughter and I spent 2 nights here and I have to say the staff are so friendly! Selina was accommodating, kind and made us feel at home. We stayed in a cute little cabana that was well equipped with a queen bed, and a well stocked kitchen. My only complaint is that there was

Yes we do have 2 cabanas available. They are one room with queen bed but one we could put a twin in but it will be tight. They are $95 per night plus 9% hotel tax. We also have the private villa available if you would prefer a larger accommodations. This has 2 bedrooms, 2 loft areas, 2 baths, 2 verandahs, living area and full kitchen. There is a/c in the bedrooms only and the accommodation is $315 per night but would be happy to give a 20% discount if you do not use the a/c. Plenty of floor fans and ceiling fans.

It is not that difficult to get from the International Airport to Placencia. You can hire a shuttle service about a 4 hour drive but beautiful, take one of the "puddle jumper" planes which puts you in Placencia in 35 minutes, or take the bus but being 5 months pregnant I don't think this option you would like. Shuttle services are usually around $75 per person each way. The puddle jumper flight I can book save you 10% and it will be $195 per person round trip. Any of these options are safe. Will you be staying at Captain Jak's?

"At Jak's there are 3 small cabanas, maybe a family sized cabana, and at least one apartment they rent long term."
"The 3 Cabana's do not have A/C...if you need A/C take another one of the rooms."
"Jason Alexander as a tour guide!"
"They are all nice and clean rooms."
"Get a cottage by the water, amazing sunset views!"
US$89 - US$146 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
