Reefs of Belize

Beneath the turquoise sea of Belize is an underwater world that exceeds every other Caribbean dive destination in diversity, size and scope. The total diving area is absolutely immense. Stretching the entire length of the country from the Yucatan Peninsula to the Gulf of Honduras, more than 185 miles North to South, the Belize Barrier Reef system is the greatest expanse of coral in the Western Hemisphere. Underwater Belize is home to an extensive ecosystem comprising shimmering schools of fish, colorful sponges, coral of all shapes, dolphins, sharks, manatees and sea turtles. You’ll also find three of the Caribbean’s four atolls, Lighthouse Reef Atoll, Turneffe Islands Atoll and Glovers Reef Atoll; together, these enormous rings of coral are as big as the Belize Barrier Reef!

Sublime service, really the strong point of the property. You may find slightly better amenties but the welcoming and attentive staff put it at the top of list for me and Belize. Dives all were spectacular hitting most of the prime spots. Guided lion fish hunt was a highlight would go back in a sec.

HAMANASI DIVE RESORT - BELIZE

Located in the small, exotic town of Hopkins in Belize, Hamanasi Resort is a peak destination for an enthralling getaway with the family, or a loved one. My family (me, my two brothers, and my dad) came for a Dive vacation. We had just gotten certified a few weeks before and couldn't wait to experience tropical diving. IT WAS AWESOME. Hamanasi has a very experienced and professional dive crew that takes you anywhere you can imagine diving around Belize. I can't give a high enough praise for the staff and management. They are some of the best in the world, guaranteed. They truly make you feel like you absolutely belong there. Not to mention the food is beyond phenomenal! This was my first real dive trip (i'm 23), and since then I have been inspired to go on many more, as I just obtained my Advanced certification this weekend. GREAT RESORT, GREAT TRIP, GREAT FOOD!

We rarely return to the same destination a second time, and this is the third stay at Hamanasi. First it is easy to get to and it is in the same time zone as the Midwest U.S. You can get to Belize City by noon from most departure spots in the U.S. You can fly a small commuter plane or you can drive a vehicle which we have done on our second and third visits to the resort. It is about a three hour drive and it is a lovely drive on very good roads (except for the last couple of miles).

The resort has an incredible number of activities for travelers. We have visited ruins, gone bird watching, tubing and visited the very lovely Belize Zoo. The rooms are large enough for 2 adults and 2 children, but are more pleasant for just two adults. The one thing that stands out is that everyone will learn your name by the second name. Everyone from the manager to the gardener knows who you are. It's better than Cheers.

The food is very good, but short of spectacular. Of course the setting with the Caribbean in the background is lovely, especially at night. If you have flexibility, head there when the moon is full and you will be treated to an especially nice view at night.

The diving is very good, but short of South Pacific standards. We saw nurse sharks, big turtles, eagle rays and a lot of pretty small things. The dive operation is wonderful whether you are a beginner or expert. I would suggest that you check their daily schedule ahead of time to make sure that your trip will let you go to the outer atolls which have the best diving.

The diving is a bit of a trek away from the resort. The barrier reef sites are about a 50 to 60 minute ride from shore (beautiful). The atolls are 2 to 2.5 hours away and the ride can be quite rough, especially in the winter months. They have planned trips there 2 days a week, so you can miss them if you are not there on the right days. The resort kind of works on a Sunday to Sunday schedule, so if you do something mid week like we did to get cheaper air fare, it may cause you to be out of synch.

The resort has a reputation for whale shark sitings in the late spring months, but I have heard that it is a real tedious trip to find them. If you don't see them, it is a long day of bobbing around in the ocean.
