Just returned from 5 days of fishing targeting permit and tarpon. Turneffe offers great access to all species of the slam, no long boat rides. One can get to the lagoon flats, backside flats, and reef flats, and of course the creeks all so easily. Finding them is up to the conditions, but the guides are excellent and long termers.... More

My wife and I traveled here with 5 other couples (very close friends). We were all ready for a break from the grind and... More

I have never been so spoiled in my whole life. The accommodations are beautiful, comfortable and peaceful. The staff is kind, happy, attentive and genuinely interested in service and ensuring your comfort and needs are met. The skilled dive boat team ensured our comfort, safety and amazement. They chose each dive spot based on wind, current, weather, sunlight... to ensure... More

My husband and I are new empty nesters, and decided to spend a week at TIR - our first vacation sans kids in over 20 years! The resort was as good, if not better, than the great reviews on TripAdvisor. I honestly have only positive things to say about our stay. Logistics - all good! TIR met us at the... More
