Belize diving is unique among Caribbean dive destinations.
It is the only nation in the entire Tropical Western Atlantic region to contain a true barrier reef and several true atolls. Along with other factors favorable to coral reef diving, this puts Belize in our list of Top Caribbean Dive Destinations.
Belize is the northernmost of the countries of Central America, bordering the Caribbean Sea between Guatemala and Mexico. It is the only country in Central America without a Pacific Ocean coastline.
Most of the mainland is covered by flat coastal swamps that gradually change to low mountains in the south. English is the official language, although Spanish is also widely spoken here.
