My husband and I are planning a trip in May of 07 and we are really wondering what Placencia is really like. I have looked on several maps, read several reviews of hotels in Placencia and they seem that anything north of the airport is pretty much "in the middle of nowhere." We were thinking of staying at Maya Beach Hotel or Maya Breeze, but now they might be too far from the action. Any info on really how far Maya Beach is from Placencia Village? Should we stay in Placencia Village? Any suggestions for hotels in Placencia? We are spending a few nights in Placencia and a few nights on Ambergris. We like to have a quiet hotel room, but we also don't want to have to walk 2 to 3 miles a day into town. We love to experience the culture of new places as well. Any suggestions would be great!
