What to Expect
Depart from Placencia’s pier in the morning and travel by boat to the postcard-perfect, 2-acre (0.81-hectare) Ranguana island. Ringed by white sand and the clear blue Caribbean, this private escape features a host of fun and relaxing ways to spend the day. Join a beach game or try out water sports, such as snorkeling, stand-up paddleboarding, and kayaking. You can also curl up with a book in a hammock or soak up the sun on a white sandy beach. Midday, recharge with a traditional Belizean barbecue chicken lunch. Drinks are available from the bar with cash or a credit card. Be sure to bring a beach towel, hats, water shoes, sun protection, and a camera to capture the frame-worthy tropical scenery.

Freddy and the team do a wonderful job looking after their guests. Family stayed on the island and although not more than a cabin, it was a peaceful night on a desert isle. The food and drinks were great!

The entire crew made the boat ride and visit to the Caye more than worthwhile. Beautiful uncrowded beach, comfortable chairs, great activities (including the snorkeling), and wonderful food and drinks. Our group of four adults and two teens LOVED our day here.
