    Beaches/Snorkeling in San Pedro

    If you go to Ambergris, you must spend some time on the beach and try to get in a little snorkeling, although it's probably not the best snorkeling you'll find. Just don't expect to see TOO many fish and you won't be disappointed. Snorkeling is always fun, though! This beach is one we walked to less than two miles up the main drag. Enjoy!

    Terrific Scuba Diving

    by samui777 Updated Jun 21, 2004

    Diving with Amigos Del Mar was enjoyable, well organized and efficient. I highly recommend the day trips to Blue Hole and Turneffe Atoll. The local diving in Ambergris Caye is pretty average. If you are going to travel to Belize to dive you should spend the extra time and money on the fabulous day trips. Expect world class diving in the outer atolls.

  • Caye Caulker

    A vacation destination in itself, I only spent a day here. This small island (about 5 miles long and only up to 1.2 miles wide) serves as home base for many divers visiting Belize. With sand streets and golf carts for tranportation.....laid back is the required state of mind. Shoes are optional. The beautiful white sand beaches are the perfect backdrop for windsurfing or fishing. There are sailing, birdwatching, and jungle trips offered from here, as well. Accomodation, restaurants, bars, and shops all line the main street.

  • Shark Ray Alley

    Fisherman used to come to this area to clean their catch, which attracted Nurse Sharks. Now, it has become a sanctuary for them and stingrays. Get into the 8 foot warm water and swim with these beautiful creatures!! This is not an enclosure!! They are attracted to the hum of boat motors and are rewarded with food by local fishermen and divers!

  • The Reef

    by CoAir13 Written Apr 5, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are so many companies here that offer some sort of day trip that has something to do with the reef. It is the second largest Barrier Reef in the world....and you must explore it when you are here. I snorkeled....it was amazing!! If you don't like the water, go along for the ride and enjoy a barbecue lunch on one of the many small (very small) islands that sit atop the reef.

    Sea Kayaking

    Nothing quite like floating on a beautiful clear sea, riding easy protected by the barrier reef, occasionally sliding off and taking a dip.

    We were using the kayaks from the Maya Coast Resort and paddling out to the Mexico Rocks.

    Mexico Rocks

    North of San Pedro, about halfway up the Island the Mexico rocks are a coral formation just of shore. Still a ways inside of the barrier reef the rocks are big, mainly round coral formations with canals between them.

    Being inside of the barrier keeps out the currents so it is easy to wind your way between the rocks finding interesting fish at every turn. I highly recomend it, best snorkeling I found

    Shark-Ray Alley

    It's a touristy thing to do but it is still a must. In the Hol Chan Marine Preserve you can dive or snorkel with reef and nurse sharks and sting rays.

    The fishermen used to come here to clean their fish, bring the sharks in for a free meal. Now guides lure the sharks here with chum. These sharks aren't too big but still provide an amazing experience. Actually the coolest thing was a baby nurse Shark that seemed to love being held and pet. It's pretty cool.
