Dive Holidays To Belize Barrier Reef

The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef stretches from Nicaragua, Honduras and across the coast of Belize, into Mexico. It is the largest reef in the Western Hemisphere. It’s nearly 700 miles long and houses countless examples of aquatic life.
A large portion is protected by the Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System, which includes seven marine reserves, four hundred fifty cayes and three atolls. The reef’s crystal blue waters are a haven for SCUBA divers and snorkelers, not to mention over five hundred species of fish, seventy hard coral and thirty six soft coral species. Put that together with the fantastic islands, hotels and local culture and you’ve got yourself the dive trip of a lifetime.
