Blackbird Caye Resort

Resort in Turneffe Atoll

This large resort has a range of comfortable accommodations including thatched-roofed cabañas right on the sand, complete with screened porches strung with hammocks from which to admire the sea views. The resort offers complete snorkeling and dive packages, and is popular with kayakers as it has coral gardens, uninhabited islands and mangrove creeks all ripe for exploration.

There is a pool with Caribbean views, which comes in handy as the sea in front of the resort is not the best for swimming. Meals are served in a huge palapa (open-air shelter with a thatched roof) restaurant near the main dock.
