100's of Cayes

100's of Cayes

Around 450 Belize islands and islets dot the Belize Barrier Reef, the world’s second longest. The largest Belize cayes, energetic Ambergris Caye and laid-back Caye Caulker, are traveler favorites, while the more isolated cayes and atolls exemplify that deserted island fantasy.

Dive the Great Blue Hole

Dive the Great Blue Hole

Made famous by world-renowned underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau, the Great Blue Hole is a gigantic underwater sinkhole surrounded by a ring of coral in the sparkling, shallow water of the Lighthouse Reef Atoll. Its vertical plunge, passing Caribbean Reef Sharks into the ancient cenote, eventually gives way to enormous stalactites and caves.

Fishing

Fishing

From spi to fly to trolling, our abundance of game fish guarantees excellent sport fishing all year round. Since many rivers empty into the Caribbean Sea, you’re practically guaranteed a daily catch, not to mention the fact that our guides have no problem sharing their own “secret” spots with guests. Explore Turneffe Atoll, which provides you with some of the most desired areas in the world for fly-fishing. Bonefish, permit and tarpon are everywhere here.

Snorkeling
