What Customers Say

  • “Amazing stay in a treehouse 10 feet off the ground" Mariposa has really beautiful grounds. The treehouse was only several months old, and the wood smelled really wonderful. It was a very cozy stay, with plenty of room and a spacious bathroom (double sink and a huge shower). They even provided bath robes. There was a small fridge provided which was nice, and a hammock in the room and on the porch. The porch was really big and nice to relax on. We also really enjoyed the restaurant! Bruce is a terrific chef. more on trip advisor

  • "Perfect Time in the Perfect Place” Bruce and Sharon are the perfect hosts. Bruce presides over the restaurant and shuttles guests to and from the airport. Sharon handles bookings and directs lodging and staff. They really made us feel like part of the family, as did all the staff at the resort. more on trip advisor

  • “Trip in paradise”
    Sharon, Bruce and their amazing staff did a wonderful job keeping up with our family of 15 (12 adults and 3 toddlers). The staff made every effort to get to know us and our kids which makes our experience so special. more on trip advisor

  • “Beautiful Property and Wonderful Owners” Why don't all places have a hammock palapa on the beach! Placencia is a cool little town but we spent most of our time having morning coffee in the hammocks or lounging in the crystal clear beach front pool. Very friendly owners and a solid restaurant open for breakfast/lunch/dinner everyday except Thursday. There are also bikes available and town is only a 10min ride with many beach bars, restaurants and shops more on trip advisor

Placencia Belize

“Mariposa was the perfect getaway. Located just outside the village, we could be in town in minutes, yet we had the privacy of a small resort!”

Placencia peninsula is home to the best beaches in Belize. The area is known as “Barefoot Perfect”. The peninsula has all the charms of being on a caye, while having the convenience of being attached to the mainland. With great activities through out the year, and convenient launching point for many inland activities, Placencia lets you be as active or relaxed as you want to be
