There is a host of accommodations options in and around Placencia. In general, the town's budget hotels and guesthouses are located in the village proper, either just off the sidewalk or around the soccer field. As you head north to the broader and more isolated beaches, prices tend to rise.

In addition to the places fully written up on this website, The Maya Beach Hotel (www.mayabeachhotel.com; tel. 627-4718) offers five clean, cozy, moderately priced beachfront rooms and a cool pool, and is home to Maya Beach Hotel Bistro, one of the best restaurants on the peninsula.

For real budget digs, you can simply walk around the village and see what's available, or head to either Julia & Lawrence's Guesthouse (tel. 503-3478; www.juliasrooms.com) or Deb and Dave's Last Resort (tel. 523-3207; debanddave@btl.net), both located just off the sidewalk towards the center of the village.
