Without leaving the resort, you can fish, snorkel, kayak, and swim, or borrow one of the resort’s bicycles for a little inland exploration. The resort also has its own dive shop. When you wander from the resort, you’ll be close to some of Belize’s most scenic beaches, including Maya Beach and Seine Bight. These are the most ideal beaches for swimming in all of Belize. They have sandy shores and clear, tropical waters. Take a day trip to the Caribbean islands of Ambergris Caye or Caye Caulker, or one of the Belizean atolls nearby the Belize Barrier Reef. You should also make time to visit a local organic farm to sample some seasonal local fruit.

Turtle Inn has several different types of accommodations. You can choose from cottages near the pool, on the beach, or tucked away in the garden. The cottages may look rustic, but the interiors offer upscale amenities. If you’re traveling with a larger group, consider a villa, a family pavilion, or the modern beach house option. Each type of guesthouse has a screened deck and ceiling fans. Fill the house with music using the iPod docking station. There are also safety deposit boxes where you can leave your valuables.

All of the accommodations here are furnished with hand-carved Balinese furniture. You’ll get a desk and a chair, a sofa, a coffee table, and a dining area. The hotel also provides everything you need to make coffee and tea, as well as a mini-fridge with refreshments and local Belikin beer. In the bathroom, you’ll get your own bathrobes, a large bath, and organic toiletries.

When you’re ready to eat, you’ll have multiple restaurants to choose from at the resort. One serves authentic Belizean dishes, and another has a beachfront seafood grill. The hotel’s Mare restaurant serves locally grown produce, and has a wood-burning oven for making fresh pizza. You can spend a delightful sunset at one of the two open-air bars, one of which faces the beach. These bars serve Coppola wines, as well as local drafts and spirits. After a long day of fun in the sun, book yourself a treatment at Turtle Inn’s Sunset spa. This spa offers massages in an open-air parlor, overlooking Placencia Lagoon. The massage professional here specialize in Thai massage. You can also try facials and skin treatments. While you’re relaxing, send your younger travel companions to Turtle Inn’s gelato bar, designed especially with kids in mind.
