Belize may be known for its lush rainforests and Mayan ruins, but its beaches are beautiful as well. Just take a look at the sandy shores at the luxurious Turtle Inn, owned by the Coppola family. An intimate resort set alongside a beautiful stretch of the Caribbean Sea near Placencia, this romantic spot caters to couples with its peaceful setting and Balinese-style private cottages and villas. Three restaurants, two bars, two outdoor pools and a number of guided tours and excursions make the resort feel much bigger than it actually is. And excellent snorkeling and scuba diving at the Belize Barrier Reef is a just short boat ride away — although you may just wanna sink your toes in the sand or lie back on the sun-drenched pier. Either way, as we say every week, sit back, relax, and soak in the goodness that is the Turtle Inn.
