Getting to Naia
Location & Getting Here
We are located within the Cocoplum Resort Community, a 200-acre private reserve situated at Mile 17.5 on the Placencia Peninsula in southern Belize, just south of Maya Beach and north of Seine Bight village. Naia is a 15-minute drive from Placencia Village and its airstrip.
For guests flying to Belize from overseas, you will arrive at Belize City’s Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport (BZE). From there, the more adventurous may choose to rent a car and take the scenic three-hour drive that takes you west through the coastal plain and then winds southeast through the scenic hills of the Hummingbird Highway before heading south to Placencia. Best done during daylight hours, the mini road trip will see you pass through the mysterious and magical Maya Mountains, a mountain range that runs through Belize and eastern Guatemala.
For those preferring a more streamlined arrival, convenient connections can easily be made directly through us on our local partner airline, Maya Island Air. An adventure of its own, Maya Island Air will fly you directly from the International Airport to the local Placencia airstrip in a small 14-seater plane where you may even get to sit next to the pilot! You’ll fly over the Caribbean Sea and the length of our home peninsula, and once there, you’ll be met by one of our friendly drivers and transported directly to the resort in our Naia van.
