Belize’s Blue Hole Reserve has made this part of the Caribbean a hot spot for serious divers. This sinkhole is 984 feet (300 m) across and 410 feet (125 m) deep. Banana Beach Resort is walking distance from convenient dive shops. In addition to kayaking, diving, and snorkeling tours, you can also arrange to have a boat take you to shore to tour the mainland. Voyage inland to see Maya ruins, rainforest reserves, and mountains. Day excursions to the beach are the easiest to arrange – just walk a short distance from the resort’s private beach. When you want to explore more of the island, ask the friendly Banana Beach Resort staff about where you get a golf cart or a beach cruiser.
