The Turneffe Islands, 35 miles from Belize City and beyond the barrier reef, are a group of 32 low islands bordered with thick growths of mangroves. The lower portion of the chain forms a deep V shape with Cay Bokel at the southernmost point. Reef areas just above both sides of the point are the favorite southern dive spots. Cay Bokel is where you'll find the Turneffe Island Lodge, a quaint resort offering dive services. West of the southern point are sheltered, shallow reefs at 20- to 60-foot depths.

All rooms have a private bath with hot and cold running water. The lodge produces its own 110-volt, 60-cycle power and has a desalinization plant to produce pure water. The restaurant and bar serve three sumptuous meals daily. Fresh fish, shrimp and lobster are nicely prepared. Snacks and beverages are served all day. The bar is always stocked with fine Caribbean rums and an assortment of other liquors and beers. No phones or TV in the rooms or cottages, but there is a phone in the office that guests may use, and the bar has one satellite TV and a VCR.

Average temperature 79°F. The rainy season is from April to December. Hurricanes form during late summer. Best time to visit is February through May, though summer diving when weather permits (mid August) is often done in calm seas with excellent visibility. Clothing: Lightweight clothing with long sleeves to protect against sunburn and a light sweater for evening wear. The dive resorts are extremely casual. Leave dress wear at home. Those who want to combine an expedition into the jungle with their diving vacation should check with the tour company about additional clothing needs.
