Comments it was my third trip to turneffe island lodge-so you know i like the lodge, and the diving quit a bit. the new beach cabannas are very very nice! the staff is very helpfull and friedly. the food is great-2nds no problems-actually very very good!!!!! you set up you tank once and from that time on it will be on the boat ready to go - just bring your mask and fins. after each dive your back on land for the surface intraval-very nice! it's a great place to go with a spouse who dosn't dive-they can fish on the flats or deep sea fish or just relax! the new pro yatchs are very nice for the transfer from belize city to the lodge 30 miles off the coast. they have someone meet you at the airport when you arrive and they drop you back at the airport in plenty of time to catch your flight out. i love this place!!!
