The Maya Breeze Inn

May Breeze Beach is on the peninsula leading to Placencia.  It’s a little community of half a dozen resorts stretched out over a couple of miles.  Except for right in front of the Maya Breeze Inn itself, it’s dirt road.  In front of the Inn, it’s packed gravel.  I suspected each segment of the road is paid for by the people fronting it.  Although there was a heck of a lot of construction going on all up and down the peninsula, don’t expect the road to be paved the whole way any time soon.

White sand, palm trees, ocean breezes, the place is paradise.  We had both a “cabin”

 
And a room in the hotel.

Besides a nice stretch of beach, which we spent many hours on, they offered the free use of their sea kayaks.

You think I'm going to show me in one?  Fugetaboutit 

Isn't their storage system cool?Once more, from the side
They said if we wanted to kayak out to a caye visible from the beach you could go snorkeling, but we never made it that far.  Not with so many hammocks hanging around.

Ahhhh 
They helped us book the snorkeling trip, and the trip up the Monkey River.  They had a dry erase board up in the office that offered different excursions for each day of the week and would set up whatever you wanted.  They even set up an intimate dinner for two on their dock, which we watched with interest.  😀

The dock.  Can you see the table and chairs? 
We had a kitchenette complete with hot plate, toaster, mini-frig, and sink, but only cooked for ourselves a couple of times.  There is a restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel, but they only served breakfast.  Almost every resort on the peninsula had a restaurant, so we spent a lot of time roaming around checking out May Breeze’s competition.  There are a lot of very nice places along the peninsula, but I think we got the best.
