Incredible Helicopter Transfer from Blancaneaux Lodge to Placencia
Placencia is a small village in the south of the Stann Creek District; it lies on the tip of a peninsula about 70 miles by sea from Belize City.
Placencia boasts nearly 16 miles of beach fronting a calm turquoise sea and backed by palm tree. What better way to get there than by a thrilling sight-seeing helicopter ride.
As you depart from Blancaneaux Lodge, you will see rivers, valleys, waterfalls and the all the breathtaking beauty of the mainland. Fly over the 1000 Ft Falls, which is actually 1600 feet tall, making it the longest waterfall in Central America. From the helicopter, you will get a view of the entire falls, which is totally unlike the ground tour where you never get to see the falls in its entirety while floating from above. Your flight then takes you over the legendary Macal River as it winds it way through the lush forest reserves to its final destination – the Caribbean Sea.
Your journey continues as you soar across the Mountain Pine Ridge area to have a bird’s eye view at the second-highest elevation in Belize, Victoria Peak. This mountain is 3,675 feet high and is surrounded by the tropical rainforest. It located on the remote northern boundary of the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary which is world renowned for being the first Jaguar Reserve. Your flight comes to an end as you arrive at your final destination – Placencia.
