Belize

 October 10-17th $1599 + airfare to BZE

Warm clear water, the world’s 2nd largest coral reef, great food and a town whose main
road is the beach. You better Belize it! Use your own points, miles or cash to get to Belize
City and we’ve got you from there! The shuttle flight from BZE to San Pedro is included in
the price, as is airport transfer to the resort. We have been running this trip for years now
and this is an easy, fun destination with fantastic dives. It includes 6 days of diving in
Paradise at Ramon’s Village on Ambergris Caye.  Ramon’s is nestled conveniently in the
village of San Pedro, a great coastal town with a wide variety of places to eat shop and
explore.  There are mainland shore excursions when you aren’t diving, like exploring
Mayan Ruins and Cave tubing and zip-lining. Travelers will be fed breakfast everyday at the
resort but will be on their own for Lunch and Dinner.  The dives are at either at
8am,11am, or 1pm every day (you pick 2). Your surface interval is spent comfortably back
at the resort, as it's only a 3 minute boat ride to the reef. The dining in town is very
affordable and delicious. (You can order Salbutes at Neri’s taco stand for $0.50) This is one
of Pat and James’ favorite places to go and its for the food as much as the diving. October
is the slow season in Sand Pedro so there are no hoards of tourists anywhere.

THE DIVES
The Finger Canyons off San Pedro are part of the Meso-American reef, the 2nd largest
coral reef in the world. They offer dives that start at 45′ and the bottom slowly slopes
down to 120’+, while the canyon walls just get taller and taller. Most of the dives have
swim-throughs if you feel adventurous. Moray Eels, spiny lobsters, rays, nurse and reef
sharks, dolphins, turtles, snapper and grouper are common. There is no current, and water
temperature is about 82*F, visibility can range between 40′ and 100′. Additionally, we will
get a day of diving at Turneffe Atoll for 3 wall dives in this more remote and unspoiled site.
Here eagle rays and turtles are quite common and the Moray Eels and grouper are quite
friendly and easy to photograph. One of the nights we will also conduct a night dive at Hol
Chan marine reserve just off the South end of the Island. The natural break in the reef wall
is a great place to find octopus, hogfish, eels, snappers and parrot fish.
