Belize diving is worth it by liveaboard and land based operations!
Belize diving can offer high quality diving sites for students and beginners inside the reef. Advanced divers can visit world famous divesites like the
blue hole visited by the Calypso and Jacques-Yves Cousteau. Also very famous are
Ambergris Caye; Turneffe atol and Lighthouse reef! The region is definitely a must destination for divers. Although invaded by tourism Belizeans stay Belizean and continue to protect and care for their ecosystem and all this with a smile...
