Blue Hole Mini Vacation
Where we are diving
The Belize Barrier Reef is the second largest of its kind in the world, and home to some spectacular diving. The reef’s 400 cays, 3 atolls, and 7 marine reserve areas make up a UNESCO World Heritage Site that stretches over 190 miles in length.
The waters are rich, clear, blue, and warm, offering great conditions for beginners and some exciting diving for the more advanced diver. You’ll find an abundance of coral gardens, sponges, reef sharks, rays, and small reef fish. The best diving in Belize is found on the surrounding cays, and no dive trip to Belize would be complete without a visit to the Blue Hole.
Originally a limestone cave, the Great Blue Hole flooded and collapsed thousands of years ago in the Ice Age, becoming the watery abyss it is today. Located at the center of Lighthouse Reef, 60 miles off the coast of Belize, it is the world’s largest underwater sinkhole, measuring 984 feet wide by 410 feet deep.
It can be difficult to take a huge chunk of time for an extended vacation. Our mini vacations are designed for people who want to get away and make the most of their holiday with a limited amount of time.

What prior travelers say

Know Before You Go
Money – BZ $2.05 for U.S. $1 Dollar. U.S. dollars are gladly accepted throughout the country. Visitors with U.S. dollars do not need to worry about changing their money into local BZ dollars.
Electricity – Belize uses 110 volt, 60 cycle electricity, same as the US. Plugs are typically the 2 pronged flat type so US travelers will not typically need a converter or adapter. Outlets rarely have 3 holes so if your device has a third prong, bring an adapter.
Water – The water is safe to drink on the island. They desalinate the seawater for clean, running drinking water.
Dress code – The dress code for Ambergris Caye is neatly defined by the hand-painted sign above the door to Estel’s restaurant on the seafront in San Pedro, “No shirt, no shoes, no problem.” With so much sand open-toed sandals or trainers are the best footwear, so leave your stilettoes and Jimmy Choos at home. The only concession when dining out is to perhaps wear long trousers and long-sleeved shirts in the evening along with some effective insect repellent so as to minimize the bugs dining out on you.
Language – English is the official language of Belize, but most of the population also speaks a creole patois, and many Belizeans are multilingual. Yucatec, Mopán, and Kekchí are spoken by the Maya in Belize.
Passport – Passport must be valid at least 6 months beyond the dates of your trip.
