Turtle Inn Belize

Francis and Eleanor Coppola (yes that Francis Coppola) acquired this beachside hideaway in 2001 and created an idyllic refuge for those seeking a relaxing or adventure-filled getaway to Belize. This 25-room seafront escape delights guests with individual thatched cottages, decorated with handcrafted Balinese furnishings, naturally cooled by the ever-present sea breezes.

Just steps beyond your private deck, the white-sand beach dissolves into the clear Caribbean Sea. In addition to offering an ideal location to experience the sea, Turtle Inn is located a short bicycle ride or walk from the charming sea-front fishing village of Placencia, where local artisan shops and dining spots can be enjoyed.


Turtle Inn has a variety of buildings depending on your needs. Their poolside garden cottages are just a few paces from the sea and have their own private porches and outdoor showers. Families love the Francis’ Family Pavillion, located at the far end of the property to maximize privacy. Celebrating a honeymoon or anniversary? Indulge in your own private island Coral Caye. Just an 8-minute boat ride from the resort, sheltered by the world-famous Belize Barrier Reef.

Activities and Adventures

The Caribbean’s largest barrier reef lies just offshore from Turtle Inn, offering divers a magnificent diversity of coral and marine life to explore. Yogis love the resorts sunrise class. And if you are looking for adventure, we recommend you to visit the world’s only jaguar preserve set in a 128,000-acre wildlife sanctuary. The preserve is also a suburb place for other wildlife viewing, hiking and biking.
