Turneffe Flats-Belize has long been recognized as one of Belize’s premier lodges. Famous for it’s saltwater fly fishing, scuba diving and marine ecotourism destination. The Lodge is located on the Turneffe Atoll. The Atoll is the largest as well as the most diverse coral atoll in the Caribbean.
The Lodge specializes in superior service for a limited number of guests. Guests awaken in their air-conditioned beachfront cabana to an incredibly varied landscape. The landscape includes a tropical seascape of white sand beach, as well as lush mangroves. As well as the sound of the surf breaking over the reef for miles in either direction. Additionally, visitors can watch a spectacular sunrise from their veranda. As night falls, guests will view stars that look close enough to touch.
Turneffe Flats Lodge
The Lodge is in an ideal location to enjoy all of Turneffe Atoll’s 250 square miles. Including expansive flats, coral reef, as well as a remarkably rich underwater world. The mission of the Lodge is to provide a high quality vacation experience with an eco friendly atmosphere. Turneffe balances quality guest experiences with minimal environmental impacts.
Eco-Tourism Packages at the Lodge
The Lodge offers three distinct eco-tourism packages. The first package is Scuba Diving. The Lodges’ dive policies apply a strict reef protection policy.
The second package is Fly Fishing. Fly fishing at the Lodge requires that all sport fish are released unharmed. Releasing the fish ensures that the populations don’t decline.
Finally, the Lodge offers a Marine Eco-Adventure package. On the whole, the Marine package is the natural experience provided by Turneffe Atoll’s incredible marine ecosystem. The Turneffe Flat’s knowledgeable and conservation minded guides add the extra. Turneffe continually educates guests about the sensitive marine eco system and the need to protect it.
