Captain Jak's is the perfect place to stay when visiting Placencia. Located near the heart of the town, it is easy walking distance to many restaurants/bars like Barefoot Bar and Tipsy Tuna, and the beautiful beach. And if you aren't up for walking they have brand new golf carts to help you explore the town. Situated on the lagoon, our stay in May was warm since there wasn't much of a cross breeze but the nice sized cabana with fans and clean bathroom were all we needed. Rooms were clean and outfitted with fresh sheets and towels and basic bathroom needs. Also available: a new flat screen TV with cable (if you need a night in) Operators Lucky and Erin were so hospitable and helped us tremendously with booking tours and inter-country flights. Even were able to give us recommendations of other restaurants and hotels in Caye Caulker after our stay in Placencia was over.
When you stay, make sure you visit Oliver and Barney, the resident parrots. They will sing you a tune and whistle as you walk by. Very cute. Also, stop out front at Brewed Awakenings for their tropical fruit smoothie. The best I've had!
Thanks Erin and Lucky for making our trip so much fun!More
