The Placencia Peninsula has a relatively small population. Placencia, the most visited village at the tip of the peninsula, has only about 1000 permanent residents. So it’s shocking to me each and every time that there is such a diverse selection of restaurants and bars. How do they do it? A smarty pants friend had the answer for me: lower rents, lower food costs, lower barriers to entry can equal more room for experimentation and creativity.
And in Placencia, it definitely does.
The list of great eateries is long & DEFINITELY includes the amazing gelato shop called Tutti Frutti. The flavors change all the time.
Rumfish has been around for a few years and has been featured in magazines like GQ, Playboy and US Weekly (my bible) – Reese Witherspoon dined there TWICE. I’d say it is THE upscale spot in Placencia Village. Here is a look around.

Let the celebrations in Placencia begin!
And lucky for me? I saved room for Tutti Frutti.
I still NEED to tell you about Dragonfly Moon and its Fer De Lance snake at the bar…
and Mojo Lounge…a very cool spot.
I can’t wait to get back down to Placencia in the middle of February. My room is already booked.
