Beautiful Island. A little hairy on the trip over (not the best of weather in November 18) but well worth the trip! Saw Eagle Ray and Barracuda along with all manner of reef fish and birds! Stunning!

A piece of paradise 50km out from the mainland. Great snorkelling on the coral reef with a local guide (Bobo), who was a pleasure to chat with and learn about Belize. Don't hesitate to go snorkelling here.
