A friend dragged me down to Placencia to go scuba diving, on top of a great adventure getting down there, was an amazing, quaint town to greet us. Casa Placencia, with our marvelous host! Jacki! Her warmth and openness was fabulous, as well as her cooking. If you ask nice she may just whip up a batch of her coffee cake, made like nothing the States could dream up! perfect rooms with A/C for a great price, who could ask for more. A taste of the feel of the waters if you are planing on diving down there, here is a link to a video I made for those on the hunt for Whale Sharks!
