For the last few years my husband and I had spent the holidays in the jungle (Costa Rica, Ecuadorean Amazon) and had a wonderful time enjoying the wildlife. But we are also avid snorkelers, and decided in 2015 to enjoy the best of both jungle and sea by taking a combination trip to Chan Chich and Turneffe Flats. We loved... More

During our week in Belize, my friend and I spent four days at Turneffe Flats and three days at Chaa Creek (Inland and Island Vacation Package). We are divers, and not into fly fishing, which Turneffe Flats seems to cater more towards. That said…it's certainly not at the expense of diving! Frankly, it totally worked out in our favor because... More

My wife and i left turneffe flats yesterday morning and i miss it already. We had spent three days mainland in Belize visiting Mayan ruins at Cahal Pech, Altun Ha and Xunantunich. I expected the ruins to be the high point of my trip. I was mistaken. We arrived after a ninety minute boat ride and had a quick get... More

My wife and I just completed a week at Turneffe Flats, fishing for three days and snorkeling for three days. The fishing is technically very challenging: even the best of anglers find the Permit and Tarpon extremely elusive and difficult and Bonefish, albeit quite abundant, very challenging. If you can do a Grand Slam at Turneffe, count yourself lucky. The... More

We spend 10 days in Turneffe Flats relaxing and diving after our round tour through Belize. It´s a great place for a vacation, if you are looking for fishing or diving. The resort is situated on Turneffe Atoll, which is 2h away from the mainland. The Atoll itself is gorgeous: small islands and mangroves everywhere. The resort offers various tours.... More

Dissappointing.We planned to do several of the offered tours. But in practice they only do fishing and snorkling. After much talking we could makes two (short) trips from the programme on their website.

a wonderful experience and we will bring the rest of the family next year. This was a great adventure, from the boat ride to the atoll, seeing a crocodile on the night hike, snorkeling, the food, the staff, everything was well done. Beautiful duplexes right on the beach, with a nice patio, or comfortable lounge chairs on the beach. We... More

My sister and I stayed at Turneffe Flats for three nights. We stayed there as part of the package booked through AdventureSmith Explorations. We also visited Chaa Creek and Tikal National Park in Guatemala. The boat ride from Belize City was very interesting. My sister and I got soaking wet. But hey, that's part of the experience! We were on... More

We spent 7 days here as a group of friends. The lodging is very nice, beds are comfortable. The island has good breezes every day so it stays relatively cool compared to inland Belize. We stayed in the Reef Villa house. The food served daily is excellent and abundant. You do need to apply bug repellent whenever walking anywhere outside.... More

Just returned from a wonderful week of diving at Turneffe Flats. Although this was our first visit, we knew that we had hit on something good as we chatted with other guests on the boat ride out. More than half were repeat customers, some had been coming here for more than 20 years! The diving was fabulous, the reef was... More
