Belize is a small country on the eastern coast of Central America. It has emerald blue waters of the Caribbean Sea to the east and Mayan ruins dotted in dense jungle to the west.
Belize is known for having the second largest barrier reef in the world, which attracts thousands of tourists each year looking to experience its rich marine life. The mainland and barrier islands are also known for their beautiful beaches and eco-friendly lodging. The most popular islands, Caye Caulker and Ambergris, offer enough options for package tourists while maintaining the authentic, diverse culture that Belize is known for.

- Dive the world-famous Blue Hole on Lighthouse Reef. This is one of the most popular dives and has become an international symbol of the country. The dive drops quickly to 130ft, from where you can swim beneath an overhang, observing stalactites above and often a school of reef sharks below.
- For peace and tranquility check out Glover’s Atoll. Lying 16 miles long and 7 miles wide, Glover’s is like a string of pearls in the blue sea. It consists of half a dozen small cays of white sand, palm trees, and a handful of low-key resorts, diving, and kayaking options.
- Get up close with sharks and sting rays when snorkeling Shark Ray Alley. The area is known for big southern stingrays and mooching nurse sharks, which come right up to the boat when it first arrives.
- The 6.5 square mile Hol Chan Marine Reserve is considered Belize’s most visited diving and snorkeling site because of its spectacular coral formations, and abundance and diversity of marine life.
