Are you looking for a laid-back mix of tropical sunshine, good diving, exotic rainforest wildlife, and some fascinating topside culture? Scuba diving Belize could be the answer.
Just a short hop from the US, and offering a wide variety of Belize dive resorts, this Caribbean destination offers thrill-seekers and vacationers the perfect combination of fun and relaxation.
Here are some of our favorite Belize dive resort areas:
With a lively nightlife and a good variety of accommodation options, Ambergris Caye is also a popular dive area offering easy access to some of Belize's best dive sites. It is home to some of our most popular Belize dive resorts, including Captain Morgan's Retreat and Ramon's Village Resort.
Arguably Belize's best dive area, Turneffe Atoll is a large reef area located offshore, and with a wide variety of marine species to discover. Secluded destinations such as Blackbird Caye Resort, Turneffe Island Resort, and Turneffe Flats are all great options.
This quiet spot in southern Belize is less touristy and offers some great topside wildlife experiences. Great Belize dive resorts in the south include the boutique Hamanasi Dive Resort and the Fantasy Island Eco Resort.
