Why I Loved My Sabbatical in Placencia, Belize

Updated: Sep 4, 2021

With 239 miles of coastline and 200 islands and cays, it’s easy to see why tourists flock to Belize. As Belize re-opened to tourists during the Covid-19 pandemic, it provided my home away from home during a 3-month sabbatical from my hospital work. Decreased cross–border movement allowed some of the inland inhabitants to staycation in their “own backyard” and discover why Placencia is one of the favorite spots in the country.


Better still, it’s a quick 22-minute flight from Belize City to Placencia.
