Surf Getaway at the Turtle Inn
Belize Coast Belize

Turtle Inn rests on the shore of the longest coral reef in the Western hemisphere.
While you may not come to find the sea, the mystery of the sea may find you.

"The new Turtle Inn is a personal joy. It features any number of original ideas and details. I made the resort as rustic as I love, and as luxurious as I could."
           - Francis Ford Coppola

Picturesque thatched beach cabanas make up the classic vision of a Caribbean hideaway set on the sandy shore peaking out between the palms.

Set on the sparkling white sand of the peninsula about a mile north of Placencia are seven cozy cottages on stilts where you could wash ashore and be happy for a very long time. Hammocks run between the palm trees and an old canoe is grounded in the sand. Each cabana has bamboo walls, thatched ceilings, fans, private baths, one or two beds with native decor, and enjoys the same great beachfront view. A fully equipped two-bedroom beach house is also available for rent. Electricity at the Inn is powered by solar panels, so there is plenty of it, and no generator noise (unique in Belize).

The main thatched-roof building features a small dining room, bar, and library. A perfect spot to relax, enjoy your favorite beverage and visit with other resort guests.

Activities are endless in this Eco-traveler's dream destination of Belize. From the central coastal location Skip and other local guides will lead excursions to visit Mayan ruins, the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, and Monkey River, or try your hand at fishing on the reef. With advance reservation, Skip will lead excursions into the Maya Mountain jungle interior, camping and exploring the wilds of Belize. A favorite pastime is kayaking in the mangrove lagoon to see the shy manatees or out on nearby cayes, snorkeling and exploring the underwater habitat. Turtle Inn strongly focuses on sharing knowledge and preserving the unique diversity of Belize's wild environment.

The open-air dining room overlooking the sea features Caribbean and American cuisine with an array of local specialties. Breakfast and lunch are served daily along with a five-course dinner by lantern light featuring seafood, meat, and vegetarian choices. The menu changes daily and fresh fish are welcome from guest anglers.

Turtle Inn staff will assist with flight reservations and logistics during your stay. It is recommended that you fly to Placencia from wherever you are in Belize, as the roads in this part of the country are not paved. Rental vehicles are available, and a 4-wheel drive is the thing to do. The dirt roads are pot holed; dusty when it's dry and a quagmire when it's wet. Average speeds are 25 mph and car rental and gas is expensive. The way to see the peninsula is by boat or walking along the beach. Impressive views are a bonus when you fly over the countryside and coastline getting to and from Placencia.
