Located North of San Pedro, Portofino sits on the most beautiful beaches of the island. Although you come to a very peaceful and quiet resort, town, shops and the nightlife are just 15 minutes away by boat. Many of the best restaurants (including Portofino's Le Bistro) are located north of San Pedro.
As a result of the protection by the reef, there is an abundance of underwater life, attracting many fish, making this the ultimate fishing paradise in the world. The flats offer some of the best Salt Water Fly Fishing in the world.
Explore Belize on daytrips starting from the Portofino dock; visit the many spectacular Mayan ruins, in the middle of pristine rivers, waterfalls and rainforest jungle, housing a wide range of plants, animals, and birds. Over 40% of Belize consists of protected wildlife parks and reserves. Or go to one of the the many Caves in Belize, with Maya remains, spectacular geologic cave formations, or just relax and go Cave Tubing.
