The Best Diving in Belize

A recent article on, a website that covers the marine industry in the Caribbean described Belize as a mecca for scuba diving because of its 190 mile long pristine barrier reef which extends from the northern tip of Ambergris Caye to the Sapodilla Cayes in Southern Belize.

“The country offers a range of diving from shore diving in shallow water to the plummeting depths of the famous blue hole. Barrier reefs found here offer superb diving for beginners including Hol Chan Marine Reserve Park located a few miles south of Ambergris Caye”, asserts the article.

Joe Zentner, the writer of the article divides Belize into three dive locations each with its own personality and types of diving:

1.)    Three outer atolls: Lighthouse reef, Turneffe Island, and Glover’s Reef

2.)    Ambergris Caye and the Northern Belize Barrier Reef; and the

3.)    The Southern Barrier Reef and Placencia. Divers can mix and match each of these destinations on a single trip.
