Divers usually have a long list of favorite dive spots that astonish each time they visit and descend below the surface.
One of the most talked about areas to plan a dive is Ambergris Caye. Believe it or not, this is the world's second-largest barrier reef. It is located off the northeastern tip of the Latin American country of Belize, a Caribbean paradise.
With so much to offer, Ambergris Caye attracts divers and every kind of water enthusiast. With the advantage of pristine shallow waters, snorkelers will be entertained by sea turtles, colorful reef fish, seagrass beds, corals, mangroves and for the lucky few, even a manatee or two. The certified divers will experience sharks and rays and possibly even a whale shark at the right time.
This is like a gift of nature spanning 185 miles long and you may never experience the same scenery twice. The reef inhabitants are grouper and shellfish and many other forms of marine life swimming lazily amongst gorgonians and passionate purple sea fans. It is a fantastic area to do some underwater filming.
Dive sites are plentiful within the Caye and everyone loves Holy Chan which is a site that has been designated as a protected marine reserve.
Contributing factors such as excellent weather conditions and warm and inviting waters make this a most desirable destination for divers, snorkelers and the overall traveler.
