My wife and I do two scuba dive trips a year at different locations. This year, Belize was our destination. Our travel agent, who specializes in dive resorts, recommended Turneffe Flats. This resort caters to dives and anglers on the hunt for bone fish. The week we were there we were the only divers. Everyone else was fishing. If you have never hung out with fly fisherman, they are a great group of people. Even though we were the only divers, the dive boat captain (Capt) and the dive master (Alex) showed us a great week and cut no corners. The diving was spectacular. Alex went out of his way to be a great guide. In over ten years of scuba diving I found him to be the most knowledgeable and informative dive master and underwater guild I have ever had. He has an underwater board that he constantly communicates with you on. He knows his stuff.... and has a great scene of humor.
The rooms were great. You are right on the water with a view that is unbelievable. The food and dining experience is great. The food was unbelievably good. We looked forward to the hors d'oeuvres and social time before dinner. You eat with the staff and other guest and they are a great group with ample conversation.
We never return to the same resort.... there are just so many places to go. However, we may go back to this one.
