MEET YOUR STAFF

At Turneffe Island Resort, your vacation is what you make of it – and our Activities Manager, Eddie, is here to make sure our guests are connected with the activities that interest them most on the island. With options from snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, and kayaking, all the way to lounging in an ocean side hammock and reading a book, Eddie will help make your stay as action-packed, or restful as you desire.

Returning guests may recognize Eddie as he previously worked for the resort for over 5 years. The wonderful colors of the ocean, the pristine reefs, and tranquil waters surrounding the resort have brought Eddie back to Turneffe Island Resort where he helps guests map out their activities during their stay.

If you ask Eddie which activity he loves the most, he’ll tell you out of all the activities the island offers, it’s impossible for him to choose. However, meeting new guests and connecting them with the adventures they want to take while on vacation is one of his favorite parts of working on the island.

Eddie encourages all guests to get involved with at least one of the activities offered – whether that’s a  volleyball game on the beach, participating in the weekly hermit crab races, or simply swinging by the bar for happy hour. For guests booking a half-week stay on the island, Eddie recommends guests arrive to the island on Saturday and depart on Wednesday, so they may take advantage of the Great Blue Hole excursion run by the resort every Tuesday.

When you catch Eddie at happy hour, you can find him chatting with guests about some of the historical sites he’s visited, his most recent hiking and camping adventures, or some of the birds you may encounter during your time in Belize.
