Building on their achievements at the spectacular jungle retreat Blancaneaux, Francis and Eleanor Ford Coppola acquired this beach-side refuge in 2001, creating a magnificent resort that’s consistently ranked among the best in Central and South America.

So many activities are on your doorstep at Turtle Inn: submerge yourself in the some of the best scuba diving in the world, hike to hidden lagoons, canoe up the Monkey River or ride a bike to nearby Placencia, AB’s favorite fishing village.  In Placencia, go native with the sleepy Caribbean vibe and hang out with locals for a game of dominoes, or up the style ante at a handful of unique, upscale and creative establishments.

Turtle Inn’s facilities and amenities include a pristine white sand beach, two infinity pools, two restaurants, beach bar, spa, dive shop, gift store and a ‘no adults allowed’ kids’ gelato bar. Take our word for it, Turtle Inn is a special place and has a sense of magic about it.
