Beach-loving parents will want to book a vacation to Placencia for its kid-friendly coastline, featuring long, narrow beaches, shallow water and gentle waves. Located on Belize’s sourthern tip, this laid-back fishing village is one of the country’s best locations for tourists. Easy access to reefs means that watersports like snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing and fishing are also popular with families. Kid-friendly accommodation choices are robust despite the small footprint of this region — options when traveling to Placencia include everything from old-world beach bungalows to modern condominium-style resorts.

"We have only good things to say about our entire trip and the planning process. You are a dream to work with! I especially appreciated how you narrowed down my options for each decision, so I wouldn't be overwhelmed. I haven't worked with a travel agent before, but you really surpassed my expectations. We will call you first the next time we travel!"

–Caldeira Family Trip

“I have been blown away with the services you provide. I first contacted Barbara last summer on a recommendation to Ciao Bambino from a friend. I wasn't sure what to expect as I had not used this type of service before. We were beyond impressed with everything Barbara set up for our family.”

–Detter Family Trip

"We loved the trip. It was exactly what we were looking for in a vacation. We really enjoyed the resort and especially the room booked for us."
