Adventure Life’s Belize tours featured on

Placencia, Belize, is the village where you can find it all – diving, cave-swimming, fishing, windsurfing, hiking to ruins, spa treatments – and Adventure Life can take you there, according to Healing Lifestyle and Spas.

Holly C. Corbett describes Placencia:

Located on a peninsula that’s nestled between the Caribbean Ocean and a mangrove-fringed lagoon with the Mayan Mountains to the west, it offers the best of land and sea activities. The village itself is a hodgepodge of tourist shops, beach bars, and fruit stands. Placencia boasts the “world’s narrowest main street,” where people wander along the concrete sidewalk that weaves through the center of town with seemingly no agenda.

Corbett arranged her Belize adventure travel trip through Adventure Life, in part because tourist dollars go back to the local community, and a portion of proceeds also goes to local causes. Adventure Life, which specializes in tours of Central and South America, uses local guides and supports sustainable travel.

While in Belize, Corbett also toured the spa options. At The Inn at Robert’s Grove, her lodging, she found natural fruit facials, seaweed body wraps and a sunburn treatment with native plants. In Placencia, Corbett treated herself to a massage at the Secret Garden Day Spa, where massages only cost U.S. $50 per hour.

Adventure Life offers many different adventure travel vacations to Belize, including treks to find jaguars in the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary. Based out of Missoula, Montana, Adventure Life is currently offering many Belize tours at discounted rates.
