Why I love Belize?
I love Belize because it enabled me to do what I love and what I love is to swim with marine creatures in the wild, and Belize has got the second largest coral reef system in the world after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. However, Belize Barrier Reef is the largest LIVING coral reef in the world, thanks to the aggressive and active patrolled program, which enforces the rules of no anchoring, no touching the coral and no fishing in the marine reserve area.
It is one of the best places in the world to encounter dolphin, whale shark, nurse shark, sea turtle, rays and other marine life in their natural habitat, and the only place in the world where you can dive the Great Blue Hole.
It has 3 of the 4 coral atolls in the western hemisphere, which means Belize got many beautiful islands for you and I to explore.
My other favourite part about Belize is the yummy food, a mixture of Mayan and Caribbean flavours. If you love to eat seafood especially conch and lobster this is the place to be. I love conch ceviche! Just keep in mind that lobster mating/spawning season is from Feb to June and conch mating/spawning season is from July to October, therefore lobster and conch will not be on any restaurant menu nor can you catch them during these periods. Please give them a break so they can reproduce and we can continue to enjoy them later.
