There are no airports in Placencia, but there is an airstrip and there are two puddle jumpers (pictured) there, which are Maya Island Air and Tropic Air.
When you fly into Belize, you will come into Belize International, which has flights to all the less populated areas from there. So you jump on a flight and literally, when you land in Placencia, you are 2 miles away from the village.
Belize International, which is on the outskirts of Belize City, is a three and a half hour drive or a 30-minute plane ride away from Placencia. If you live here in Placencia, and let’s say you want to have a vacation in Caye Caulker, you can take a plane going to Caye Caulker. You don’t have to drive and take a boat.
These little planes go everywhere from Belize City: to Belmopan, to Ambergris Caye, to Caye Caulker, to Dangriga, to Placencia, and to Punta Gorda. There are two airlines that have those flights and they fly all day. They just do not have flights at night. It is very normal for people in Belize to get on a little plane and go from place to place.
