Comments DIVING IN THE CARIBBEAN (BELIZE AND COLOMBIA) by Andrew Falconer

As part of a wider trip to Latin America, I spent some time diving the Caribbean in Belize and Colombia during August and September. At this time of the year it is “the low season” as it coincides with the end of the American school holidays and the start of the hurricane season.
BELIZE
Belize is a small Central American country, formerly known as British Honduras, rather unique in that it is English speaking, and it also has the second largest barrier reef in the world after Australia. As such it is a well known spot for scuba divers, mostly from the USA and Canada. We stayed for a week in San Pedro at Diana’s Air B and B which was away from the noisy and dusty Main Street but close enough to Ramon’s Dive centre, with whom I dived the Ambergris reef just offshore. The coast of San Pedro (and all the Yacutan) is currently being plagued by vast quantities Saragossa seaweed washing up, making shore swimming impossible and smelling unpleasantly. Diving is unaffected.

Location of San Pedro, Ambergris reef and Turneffe atoll
I did six dives over three days on Ambergris reef, all accessible in about 5 minutes by fast dive launch via a passage through the reef.
