This was my second trip to Turneffe Flats and I have to say that it was better than I remember it. I had a wonderful time the first trip in July of 2000 but this trip was unrivaled in my vacation history. It is a place that inspires one to relax, get back to their natural state and relate to people around them, not in digital form but in actual conversation and physical contact.
Each staff member I encountered, from the owners to the cleaning staff, was extremely pleasant, accommodating and went out of their way to make sure I had what I wanted and needed. The bungalows on the beach were inviting, quiet, comfortable, clean and, most importantly, right on the beach! Every morsel of food was delicious and well presented. All the facilities, including the boats used for diving, were clean and well maintained.
The diving was outstanding. We had Capt. for our boat captain and Emi for our dive master. Both were outstanding at what they did and were nice, fun and professional. Really enjoyed spending the week diving with them. We did 3 dives a day including a trip to Blue Hold and the Lighthouse Atoll. With safety as a primary concern, they went out of their way to make sure that everyone in the group, from novice to expert diver, got to enjoy the trip. We saw some things that I had never seen before and that was amazing!
Overall, I had a wonderful vacation. I felt so relaxed and at peace while at Turneffe. I am sure to return just as soon as I can. Many thanks to Craig, Karen, Emi, Capt. and the rest of the staff at Turneffe Flats!
