Comments If there is such a thing as a ****** star resort, this is it. Private beautiful bungalow, choice of coffee, tea or hot chocolate delivered to your stoop at a waking time you specify, staff:guest ratio 2:1, outdoor showers, on & on & on. VERY expensive, but worth it. Complete computerized summary of dives, critters seen, depth/time data, etc. supplied when leaving the totally private island ~ 2 hour boat ride from Belize City.
Blue Hole dive one day (as most know, not much to see but good bucket list checkoff). My wife saw many sharks snorkeling the rim of the black hole while we were looking at the stalactites in the dark. Good diving at other sites on way back plus nice stop on another island to see nature center (w good frigate colony).
No downside other than the expense. Heartily recommend.
