Best dive sites near Ambergris Caye

We plan on largely following the lead of our dive master. However, should we be requesting anything? We are diving 5 days (2/day) and not planning on leaving the AC area (not going to the Blue Hole, etc.). I hear Hol Chan and shark ray alley are definitely something to do even though they can get crowded. We are staying at X'tan Ha so we will ride kayak out to Mexico Rock.

With 5 days, I hope we don't end up just going to close places unless they really are the best. For example, since we are already 7 miles north of town, are there any great dives up north (even farther up from X'tan Ha? Also, the dive shop might want to only go to the place up north with Hol Chan being the farthest south. Is that OK? Are there a ton of great dive sites along the reef or are there particular spots that are clearly destinations to plan to see?

I am not sure who you plan to use for diving but check in at Lola's Pub when you arrive and ask for the owner Steve. He is an avid diver and will give you good advice to his favorite spots over the years he has been here.

Here are 2 links to ACMB you will find helpful to see what is out there for dive sites.
