The Pickled Parrot & Placencia Beach Olympics

The Pickled Parrot & Placencia Beach Olympics

  Having been in town now for a few weeks, we are meeting some great people.  Locals who have lived here their entire lives, tourist who are only in town for a few days, and expats who have made this quaint village their new home.  It’s amazing how they work together to give back to this community. Having found this wonderful little bar and grill just off the Placencia Sidewalk;  The Pickled Parrot, we are quickly feeling welcomed in the community  and…

Placencia Beach Bars

Placencia Beach Bars

Destination Placencia! | Placencia Belize

Every trip we have made to Belize has been a breeze! Easy flight from Dallas to Belize City.  Puddle jumper to Ambergris Caye on a 12 minute flight. Easy flight, no checked baggage, no hassle.  Granted, this trip is a little different, as this is an extended stay in our new place and we have packed some necessary items that are difficult and expensive to find in Belize. Having an early morning flight, several pieces of checked luggage, and taking a…
