Resort Description

Turtle Bay Eco Resort is located on the tropical island of Isla Major in the Cayos Cochinos archipelago, Honduras. 

The resort is set over 10 acres and offers direct access to the Caribbean Sea. The resort offers private diving, dining, hiking, kayaking, island touring and much more. It is an ideal place to enjoy a cocktail as you watch the sunset over the bay.

This is a great choice for divers looking to ‘get away from it all’ in an intimate, natural setting. The resort has just 5 rooms, so can offer a personalised service and chance to get to know the staff during your stay.

The marine life found meters from the shoreline comprises part of Cayos Cochinos Marine Park, a portion of the the world’s second largest barrier reef. Look forward to turtles, nudibranchs, barracuda and hundreds of colourful reef fish!

How to get there


  • The resort is accessible exclusively via boat in the mornings, to avoid unsafe sea conditions.
  • The resort offers a complimentary service from La Ceiba's Muelle de Cabotaje at 9:30am every Wednesday and Saturday morning. A resort rep will be available to meet and greet you in La Ceiba. 
  • Transportation on any other day is available, but is charged at $150.00 per lodge.
  • The ride to Cayos Cochinos can be as quick as 35 minutes in perfect seas, but can take as long as 75 minutes. As travel is done by boat, there is the potential to get wet.
  • The transfer occurs in a 28' "Panga" style vessel, which is standard practice in Honduras, with a 2017 115HP Yamaha Outboard. The captain - Tin - has had over 20 years of experience in marine transfers and you will find no better man to bring you safely and comfortably out to the islands.
  • Check in time is 10am.



  • For those who are taking the complimentary transfer on Wednesday or Saturday, check out time is 6:30am.
  • Transportation on any other day is available, but is charged at $150.00 per lodge.
