The Sleepy Town of Placencia

For my second and final Spring Break of business school I organized to go to Belize with a bunch of friends from Berkeley – Neal Kohl, Josh Moreen, Ayako Tanaka, Tara Davis and KJ Yoo.  Neal and I flew down together as the advance party, and the others joined us over the following few days.

We began our trip in the tiny town of Placencia – reportedly it has the best beach on the mainland, and it’s also THE place to go dive with the whale sharks on the outer reef (unfortunately we missed the full moon by just a couple of days).  It was a quiet little place with a decent strip of beach and a couple of chilled-out places to drink and eat.  Our pick was the "De Tatch" restaurant on the beach, a great place to relax and waste the hours away.

Flying in to Placencia – not much of a landing strip!

Josh enjoying the "good life".  Or is he in a Corona ad…?
