“A new study published in the Journal of Marine Policy finds that coral reefs generate $36 billion in global tourism value per year. Mapping the Global Value and Distribution of Coral Reef Toursim used traditional and academic research combined with unique “big data” and social media uploads to map, in high resolution, the full value of coral reefs to tourism, highlighting the incentive for sustainable reef management.” (source)

There’s a reason so many flock to our corner of the world each year – and it’s not just because we have such amazing food and beautiful beaches. The Mesoamerican Reef System is one of the most incredible examples of nature’s diversity on our blue planet, so rich with life you could spend decades searching its depth and continue to discover new things.

What we offer at Blackbird Caye Resort is a pure, diving-focused experience, worth making the trip to Turneffe Atoll from wherever you call home. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been diving your whole life or if you’re strapping on a tank for the first time, we can take care of you.
