Review of Turtle Inn, Belize

Beauty in Belize, at Turtle Inn

Escape to Francis Ford Coppola’s resort and discover pure bliss in Belize.

You probably don’t need anyone to tell you how fabulous Belize is, I mean just ask Leonardo Dicaprio, who has mounds of property there. I will not tell you about the white sandy beaches, and beautiful bodies tanning in the hot sun. I will tell you about the Turtle Inn, in Placencia, Belize (little fact: it’s owned and still operated by Francis Ford Coppola), the surrounding area’s activities, and a charming little town called Placencia.

Getting there takes two flights, or a flight and a drive. I personally prefer to take Maya Island Air once I land in Belize, as the drive is about 4 hours and not very exciting, whereas the tiny Maya Island Air plane can get you there in about 45 minutes, and the scenery is much more interesting from above. It costs about $120 each way, you can book online or through Turtle Inn, and they fly several times per day.

    One of the reasons why I love the Urbanette Magazine is that this magazine completely away from cliche. You don’t go promoting places you actually don’t like. And you don’t go chasing the trendy places unlike every other magazine. You only write about the places you’ve been to and was satisfied with. For example Turtle Inn. I never heard about the place until I saw this article. I’m glad I did. It’s far from the cliche so called popular places other magazines rave about! The Turtle Inn definitely looks like a place I could have a great time. Thanks for being unigue and geniune. I really appreciate that.

      They’re not lying when they say 100% unique content. 😉

      Just like you, I love finding out via Urbanette about all these gorgeous places I’ve never been to. Because I trust their reviews, and I know they won’t try to make us believe in something they don’t stand behind.

      Honestly, Turtle Innn is ONLY one of the MANY places I found out through Urbanette, and I’m already planing to make a trip as soon as possible. 🙂

    I came across this article while I was looking for information about the Turtle Inn. My fiance booked us a reservation and surprised me with it. Being the control freak I am, I had to see what it’s like and read some reviews. I did come acress some informative reviews on some certain websites, but my god, nobody described it in so much detail like you did! THANK YOU! All thanks to this article I am relieved because I know it won’t be disasterous getaway. I expect it to be rather romantic. 🙂

    I took my time, read the whole article and then read all the comments, and all I can say is WOW!! I agree with each commenter. This place is a great get away from the stressful big city life.

    This is generally not my kind of place. But the way you described it, and the photosyou shared, really made me want to book a vacation there! Well done on another AWESOME article Hilary! You’re so good at this. 🙂

      Her writing technique is so unique and creative. You can picture everything in your head as you read it. I think she should write a book! I know I would buy it. 🙂

    Fascinating! Exoticism and luxury met in one place. You’re quite a lucky girl that you get to travel to all these amazing places. Thank you for sharing your travel experiences with us!

    It has a bit The Sims Castaway Stories vibe to it. Totally my kind of place. I would definitely love to visit if I had the chance one day.

    Oh my god! My sister is getting married this summer, and she wants a beach wedding, but she’s so picky that she hasn’t booked a location yet. I’m going to share this article with her. I know she will love it. That’s exactly what she’s looking for.
