I am 65 years old and live in Delaware full time. Within two days of arriving in Placencia, Belize 8 years ago, for the very first time, I began to feel so welcome and at ease/peaceful, like I knew these people for many many years. I became very close with many of the people who reside and work there, immediately. I now call them friends. Then I began to experience all that Belize has to offer; the culture, the jungle, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing (incredible!)and Mayan Ruins adventures. Placencia became my second home very quickly. I love Placencia, its people and the adventures that are at my fingertips. I just want to keep going back, again and again and again. I get great big hugs as soon as I do. I am a professional landscaper and the lush gardens and pool environment at Chabil Mar are just awesome! I no sooner leave and I want to get back again.
