The protected waters around the reef offer world-class snorkeling and scuba diving. Enjoy fishing or sea kayaking among sea life, tropical fish and rare coral.

Learn about the history of herbs over a lunch made with the farm’s fruits and spices.
Awaken Your Animal Side
In Belize, you’re never far from exotic animals, tropical fish or rare, gorgeous birds. Belize has become a prime destination for birders and conservation-minded travelers.
