Belize

Tucked away on the Caribbean coast of Central America, Belize probably has the most dive favorable coastline in the Americas. The world’s second longest barrier reef, which stretches nearly 1,000 kilometres/600 miles, officially called the MesoAmerican Barrier Reef, sits right off its coast. The only coral atolls in existence outside of the Pacific are part of Belize and there are dozens of cays on which to castaway. The experience starts at the northern end of the barrier reef on Ambergris Caye, an island that radiates the dive life with its easy access to top dive sites, its laid-back beach vibe and abundance of beach bars. Heading south from there takes us along a myriad of famous dive regions and sites. Turneffe Atoll, Lighthouse Reef, Caye Caulker, the Great Blue Hole, Half Moon Cay, Glover’s Reef, the Elbow, Gladden Spit, all of these names tend to make divers salivate. While you could simply over-indulge in wall, drift, big animal and macro dives, you’ll need to at least cast an eye towards land in Belize. Mayan ruins, bird watching, jungle treks, and even cave tubing are just a starter kit to the eco-wonders of topside Belize. Small though it is, Belize is a country that could steal away your dive adventures for years.

Ambergris Caye:  

About a 10-minute hop by air from Belize City, Ambergris Caye is crammed with diver delights, such as famed HolChan Marine Reserve and Shark-Ray Alley where you can get nose to nose with nurse sharks, spotted eagle and stingrays and heaps of friendly fish.

Turneffe Atoll:  

Coral atolls and ultimate dive escape go hand in hand, and Turneffe is literally surrounded by a fairy ring of great wall diving and healthy coral gardens. Eat on a beach, sleep on a hammock, dive all day long.

Dangriga:  

Well known as a cultural hub in central Belize, Dangriga also makes for a great launch point for dives to the barrier reef, especially southern Turneffe or Glovers Reef.

Placencia:  

Great access when whale sharks show up between March and May off Gladden Spit, which is almost due east of Placencia.
