Placencia, Belize

For a tropical escape fit for the silver screen, head to director Francis Ford Coppola’s Turtle Inn Resort. This Polynesian-style resort in Placencia, a fishing village in Belize’s Stann Creek District, boasts thatched-roof cabanas replete with private gardens, open-air showers and Balinese hand-carved decor. Explore the nearby prehistoric jungle of Monkey River, scuba dive on the offshore coral reef and enjoy a Thai massage in the resort’s oceanside cabana. With 3 sublime restaurants, serving specialties like ceviche and whole fish cooked tableside, easing into la vida tranquila is effortless.
