We also boast of an amazing coral reef system. the second largest in the world and this hemisphere’s longest, running offshore, and many cayes (islands of coral sand) are surrounded by astounding reefs to snorkle or scuba dive. The reef lies one-half mile east of the Ambergris Caye shoreline and runs the entire 25 mile length of the island (Maps ). This has made San Pedro Town the dive and water sports capital of our country as well as Central America. The Great Blue Hole. Turneffe Islands. Shark Ray Alley. Hol Chan Marine Reserve. Mexico Rocks. Lighthouse Reef. and many other diving areas are all only a short boat ride away from this coconut palm lined island.
This area is home to a delightful variety of plant and animal life. With a large percentage of the country’s land under protection, the hundreds of species of birds. exotic tropical plants, monkeys, manatee, crocodiles, and thousands of colorful fish thrive and are a highlight of any vacation.
But truly our people are the most memorable part. The mix of ten different cultures include East Indian, Garifuna, Mestizo, Maya, Mennonites, and Creole. They will welcome you, and their wonderful relaxed hospitality will allow you to relax and enjoy your time here.
