Belize-SunBreeze Hotel and Aqua Dives
« on: November 27, 2009, 15:34:12 UTC »
 Have reservations for Jan., 2010, for SunBreeze Hotel and Aqua Divers in San Pedro, Belize. Would appreciate any RECENT information people can pass on about the location, diving, dive operation, places to eat within walking distance, etc. Have been diving most of the Caribbean during the last 20 years; but first time to Belize.

Hi Niagara,

I suspect you will enjoy both your choice of accommodations and dive ops.

IMHO, the majority of BZE diving is about average on the Caribbean Scale.  Expect to enjoy it, but not to experience a series of "wow" moments.

Get out to dive the Lighthouse Reef and the Turneffe area sites as often as you can.  IMHO, the Blue Hole is a "must do because it's a big name dive," but it's a long boat ride and because of depth it's a short dive.  Arguably worth doing only once.

For restaurants, check out Capricorn, Elvi's Kitchen, Red Ginger, Palapa Bar & Grill and the Rojo Lounge.

If there's time, visit the local zoo and also arrange for a cave tubing outing.

Have a great trip.

Regards,

DocVikingo

Doc,
  Thank you very much for your information on Belize.
  I have been an admirer of yours for many years going back to some advice you gave me many, many years ago about Cozumel.
   Thanks again.

I can see this was a old trip, so how did you like diving in Belize?

Oye turneffeisland,

Trying to cover all the promotional bases, eh?

In any event, the original post is dated November 27, 2009. And, the original poster has not logged onto the board since December 07, 2009.

Perhaps you might wish to email or PM him.

Cheers,

DocV
