Undersea Adventure in Belize
Divers can find professional dive operators, and much of the country’s hot diving is closer than they think. In fact the run to the Blue Hole and atolls is actually shorter from Belize City than from Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker, and is mostly in protected waters. Staying in Belize City offers the convenience of access so many close-at-hand adventures. Mix and match dive adventure packages allow you to see more of Belize, above and below the sea.Dangriga is situated about 40 miles south of Belize City. It is a destination loaded with energy, and there’s much to see and do in the nearby villages of Hopkins and Sittee River. South water is a piece of paradise perched atop the reef about 15 miles offshore to the east from Dangriga. This is where you will find two resorts, Blue Marlin lodge and
Pelican Beach Resort. Further down the coast and less than one hour’s drive away is the long, narrow peninsula leading to Placencia. This area is advertised as the springboard to the best diving in Belize. It’s one of the hottest dive destinations in the region. Placencia offers an excellent array of resorts and dive facilities dotted along the peninsula. Most resorts face the sparkling sea, and the reef is only a few minutes away.
