Dive trip to Belize

Looking to plan a dive trip to Belize for spring break. My dad and I are both certified divers and want to experience as much as we can in a week. What top places would you recommend to dive? Also where would be the best place to stay?

Do you want to do nothing but dive? If so, look at the atolls.

If you want a town with bars and restaurants, look at Caulker or Ambergris.

There are dive dive lodges on Turneffe atoll. South Water Caye. Glovers atoll, Hopkins and Placencia are all great places to base for diving. Hopkins and Placencia are closer to the mainland for trips to see Mayan sites, jungle, zip lines and more

If diving is your main objective then consider a live aboard like the Belize Aggressor. This will maximize both the number of dives and the variety of dive sites you can visit. Ultra convenient diving too -- no lugging gear on and off of boats since you and your gear are right there. The ideal way to do a lot of diving in a short time.

If you want to do shore based then consider staying at a lodge on one of the atolls. Like MariSol on Glover's Atoll.

Both of these options minimize the amount of time you spend taking a boat to dive sites.
