Create an itinerary including Laughing Bird Caye National Park
Laughing Bird Caye National Park represents a distinctive island that sits on an unusually narrow ridge of reef. Named after a bird which used to breed here, the park is home to an abundance of coral habitats and marine life. The tropical island features white sand and palm trees, and is surrounded by coral reefs. This allows visitors to mix snorkeling, diving, and island exploration into their visit, but you must rent a boat and guide out of Placencia. Lunch can be organized through your guide, with possibilities for a picnic or a beach barbeque. Planning Placencia trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

  • Great sand and shade! Watched Pelicans dive for fish in the warm water. Snorkeling and diving tours available. Good for kids.

  • A great example of what national parks should be like. Pristine waters surrounding a nice sandy beach Caye. Live in ranger will give you a 10-minute talk about the island and what you can and cannot.....  more

  • Great snorkeling spot ! We saw lots of different fish in this protected area
  • Excellent clarity water for snorkling/diving. Plenty of aquatic flora/fauna to see as it is all protected and I believe a unesco site. Biggest lobster I've ever seen was there
