Comments Turneffe Island is a small resort (perhaps 20 rooms) on a private island about 35 miles off Belize City. Most guests are divers or fisherpeople. We arrived in Belize early and the resort had their driver meet us @ airport and take us to a hotel at which we stayed two nights until leaving for resort. Boat usually runs Sat. & Wed.
