The Ghost in Belize

27 May 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My husband, friends and I recently got back from an amazing trip to Belize. The last place we stayed was in a town called Placencia, and we got a room in these beautiful cabanas right on the beach.

We stayed there for a total of 3 nights, and the first night was uneventful. However, upon returning to our place the second night after a day of beach activities, it seemed that the atmosphere had changed a bit. My husband and I were sleeping in the living room, adjacent to the kitchen. Down the hall from the kitchen was a room to the right, where two of my friends were sleeping, and a room to the left, where my other friend was sleeping. At the end of the hall was the bathroom.

I woke up the second night around 2:30 in the morning to very loud noises in the kitchen. It sounded as if someone was banging pots and pans around and clanging the silverware. There was a little divider between my side of the bed and the kitchen, so I had to lean over to see who was making the noise. However, I didn’t see anyone there and the noises continued. I then heard footsteps walking around the hallway and kitchen very loudly. This went on for an hour and then it stopped and I was able to fall back asleep.

The next morning, I was talking to my friend in the room on the right, and she asked if I had been walking around a lot last night. She woke up at 2:30 and heard the same exact things, and she even heard the footsteps pacing around her bed for a while. She also told me that she has a dream where she saw a man standing before her, wet and dripping and she knew that he had drowned. Our friend in the last room was also woken up at the same time and heard the noises, and the steps went into her room and around her bed. She also said that at one point, they seemed to stop at the side of her bed and she felt as if someone was watching her. I hadn’t thought much of it until I realized that we all experienced and heard the same things at the same time of night.

The next night I was a little uneasy going to bed, but managed to fall asleep anyways. I was woken up around 3:00 am to a loud crash in the kitchen, but when I looked, nothing was out of place. I was terrified and kept trying to wake my husband, but he is a very heavy sleeper and didn’t even move. Again, I was able to fall back asleep, but as soon as I did, I dreamed that this man was trying to get into the house. He was a white bald man with a blonde mustache. Eventually, He shoved his way through the door and then shoved my chest, and as soon as he did, I woke up and felt the sensation of hands in the place that he shoved. I was awake for another half hour too terrified to move but luckily the sun started coming up and I was able to go back to sleep for a bit.

I didn’t ask the lady in charge about any kind of hauntings because I was embarrassed, and we couldn’t research anything because the wifi was awful, so we had to wait until we got home from our trip. As soon as we landed, we started doing research and came across this article about a man who has been drinking at the bar next to our resort. He went out for a swim and ended up drowning, and they pulled his body up onto the beach next to our resort. The article featured a picture of the man who had drowned, and he was a white male with a blonde mustache!!! We all freaked out, but we knew it was him who was banging around our hotel at night.

It was a crazy experience and Placencia was beautiful, but I’m not going back there!!!!
