what's the general consensus on this place?

my fiance and I are contemplating our honeymoon in Belize and it's between Turtle Inn and Matachica. Matachica affords us the ability to do more because it's slightly less expensive, but Turtle Inn does seem nice.

We really want to lounge, read, drink, snorkel, etc.

Hey! The better question might first be deciding whether you'd rather spend your honeymoon on Ambergris Caye, or in Placencia. Placencia has larger beaches (a relative term in Belize sometimes). My wife and I like to get out and explore (walking, biking, etc.), and found Ambergris Caye bit more conducive to that. I've only visited Turtle Inn once (never stayed), and it was definitely more luxe than what I've seen at Mata Chica (and never stayed there either, but I've visited and eaten there).

thanks for the response.

well, we definitely don't want to feel isolated...i like that fact that there is a bit of nightlife/food in San Pedro.

from a luxury standpoint, we definitely want that, as we are on our honeymoon. But we also want a bit more $ to spend on things like food, beer, and tours. So the question is weighing relative luxury vs a bit more walking around $

While Banana Beach is very nice it is no where near the league of Mata Chica or Turtle Inn. Mata Chica and Turtle Inn are both high end, get pampered to the max resorts.

Just for the fact that it offers you the opportunity to do and see many more activities without making everything a full day trip I personally would pick Mata Chica.

But aren't there other places on North AC that would be suitable and maybe a bit cheaper. What about Portofino, for example?

for the honeymoon, i feel pretty good about the cost.

honestly, and i love turtle inn, but i get more and more excited about North AC and what it has to offer in regards to diversions/other dining/snorkeling, etc, that I kinda like Matachica.

Wish VH was open in Oct.
