Trip Planner: Central America / Belize / Belize Cayes / Ambergris Caye / San Pedro / Hol Chan Marine Reserve
Belize's top snorkeling and diving site, Hol Chan Marine Reserve dazzles with its impressive coral formations and diverse marine life. Its reefs shelter a dizzying variety of creatures, including 40 types of coral and 160 different species of fish. This thriving underwater kingdom also provides a home for several mammals, including pantropical spotted dolphins and short-beaked common dolphins. The marine reserve encompasses mangroves and beds of sea grass, which ensure a safe habitat for southern stingrays and nurse sharks.

Reviews say it all - 5 stars ! Amazing snorkeling adventures and tons of marine life which the country is working hard to protect! There is a valley in the reef system which has a huge flow of marine life: rays, turtles, fish and lots of healthy coral. MAKE SURE the waters are clear the day of going out, nothing worse than not being able to see but 10 feet in front of you!! There are probably hundreds of different companies which will crew you out here and guide you about, as it is one of the primary tourist attractions near San Pedro and Ambergris Key.
Best snorkeling ever! Within minutes we went from land to seeing amazing coral, fish, stingrays, and even a turtle. Our guides were super knowledgeable and made sure we went at the best time and educated us to keep everything safe.
