As the saying goes, big things sometimes come in small packages. With Belize – the second smallest and least populated nation in Central America – this couldn’t be any truer as it packs a hemisphere’s worth of adventure within its borders. Located between Mexico and Guatemala, Belize is the perfect destination for exploration, relaxation and romance. With more than 400 islands, white sandy beaches, the longest unbroken barrier reef in the western hemisphere and 298 kilometers/185 miles of coastline, Belize is a world-class scuba diving destination. When you’re not diving with nurse sharks, you can explore ancient Mayan ruins, visit rainforests, hike or go cave tubing. Explore Belize and you’ll experience something truly amazing.
Visibility – Off the barrier reef and atolls, visibility is often 30 metres/100 feet or more, it’s slightly less inside the reef.
Water Temperature – The water is pleasantly warm during the summer at 30°C/85°F and a comfortable 26°C/79°F in winter.
Weather – The subtropical weather in Belize means it is warm year-round, particularly along the coast. A brisk sea breeze tempers the heat a bit during the summer. Air temperatures in summer range from about 24-29°C/75-85°F. Winter is cooler, with a daily low of about 21°C/70°F and a daily high of about 27°C/80°F.
Featured Creatures – Sea turtles nest on the sandy beaches from June to August. Whale sharks sightings are common from April to June along the southern barrier reef. There are about 70 types of hard corals and around 400 species of fish in Belize. Also, expect to see sharks, big schools of fish and rays.
Cozumel is one of our favorite location to go dive. We have several trip a year.
Ten kilometres/six miles off the coast of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula lies Cozumel, the “Island of the Swallows.” Barely 50 by 16 kilometres/30 by 10 miles, this diminutive island has become a popular scuba diving destination. Cozumel has all the ingredients for a great dive getaway – friendly locals, good food, lively nightspots, towering coral formations, warm water, great underwater visibility and white sandy beaches. Most dive sites are found within the boundaries of Cozumel Reefs National Marine Park, which protects much of the second largest barrier reef system in the world, the Meso-American reef system. Created in 1996, the park is home to some 26 types of corals with more than 100 subspecies. More than 500 fish species live in the park, including the endemic splendid toadfish. Due to marine life protection programs, divers can also often see loggerhead, hawksbill and green turtles. From shallow sheltered shore dives to secluded, seldom visited, current-swept drift dives, there’s a dive in Cozumel for everyone.
