Committed to Community
We’re committed to supporting the local community. Join us in helping the amazing people of Belize. Pack a few extra items for school children, match our nightly charitable contribution, or ask us about offering a 5-night stay at The Placencia in your next charity auction!
We are proud members of Pack For A Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community. If you save just a bit of space in your suitcase to bring supplies, you can improve the lives of local children and families.
The Placencia Resort donates $2 BZD for every occupied room night to a worthy community program, school, or non-profit organization in need of financial assistance. Each month we select a different beneficiary organization. We invite you to match the resort's donation upon check-out. Check out the charities we are working with this year HERE.
3. CHARITY AUCTIONS
The Placencia Resort offers a highly discounted 5 night stay to select charity auctions on consignment. These trips have sold well above market value at several events and raised thousands of dollars for non-profit organizations around the world. Please inquire for more details.
LEAVE ONLY FOOTPRINTS
Muy’Ono is committed to preserving the beautiful, yet fragile, natural environment that is the main attraction in Belize. We focus on eliminating any potential negative environmental impact associated with our operations and encourage our guests to do the same.
SUSTAINABILITY TIPS FOR TRAVELERS:
Use and refill your complimentary water bottle
Reuse your towels to reduce water and chemical waste
Turn off lights and air conditioners when you leave your room
Minimize water use (turn off taps when shaving or brushing teeth)
Respect local cultures and customs
Dispose of trash responsibly and recycle where possible
When diving and snorkeling, never touch plant/animal life and minimize fin movement (which stirs up sand that can choke the reef)

Join environmental groups and support environmental causes
Donate to the local community (match our $2 BZD per room, per night donation)
