Comments A pleasant week diving in Belize. The resort has cabanas scattered around the beach front with screened porches facing the ocean. Adequate but weak AC in ours, some had terrible/no AC. Ceiling fans helped. Central dining pavilion with 3 daily meals, dinner choice made at breakfast, vegetarians accommodated. Nice pool with bar, another common room with bar and free snacks served daily around 4. Overall food was very good and plentiful. Good snorkeling from beach out to breakers, kayaks available to use.
Diving off boats was pleasant. Gear left on boat, hanging station for wetsuits, booties on dock. No nitrox when we were there, machine broken- given free extra dive as compensation. Blue hole dive day available for extra charge- people who went enjoyed it very much. We dove long dives, no rushing. They held meals for us as needed. Great dive crew.
There was a stiff breeze most days, which was good because the last day was calm and I got bitten up by sand fleas and noseeums. They spray daily, but watch out! Bring DEET.
