Placencia village from the air

Belize City International Airport is just a short non-stop flight away from many North American cities.

Once in Belize, we recommend taking the 25-minute flight to Placencia. Maya Island Air and Tropic Air have multiple daily flights. Ocean Breeze is just a 5-minute drive south from Placencia Airport.

If you prefer to drive yourself from Belize City you can go to the car rental place located just outside the main entrance to the airport. There are several car rental companies but we recommend Crystal Car Rental as we have used them many times.

As for directions, you can take the Western Highway towards Belmopan and then turn off left onto the Coastal Plain Highway just past the Belize Zoo.

The journey from Belize City to Ocean Breeze in Placencia Village will take around 2.5 hours. It seems a long drive but it certainly allows you to get a good look at the country. Maybe stop at a local restaurant or tourist site along the way. 


If you are flying into Placencia Airport, we can arrange a Taxi to pick you up and take you to our resort. All we will need is the Airline (Maya Island Air, or Tropic Air) and the time you land in Placencia. The cost is around 20BZ for 2 people. Just let us know and we can make arrangements.

If you are driving to Placencia, when heading into Placencia Village, look out for Rick's Café on the left just past Ming's grocery store. You will see a soccer field on the right-side - find a spot and park along the grassy area in front of the soccer field.


Look out for the "9 & 9" grocery store and follow the sidewalk past the Picked Parrot bar towards the beach - follow the Ocean Breeze signs. It's a 3 minute walk!
