Top 10 Reasons to Stay at Belize Dive Haven

Belize and diving go hand in hand, and although we’ve become well known in the scuba diving community because of our proximity to the Great Blue Hole, we offer much more than that. We’ve compiled a list of the top 10 reasons you’ll want to stay at Belize Dive Haven, but don’t be fooled, the list is actually endless!

 

1. Ideal Dive Temperatures Year Round

The water can reach temperatures of up to 84° Fahrenheit/29° Celsius and rarely ever drops below 78° Fahrenheit/26° Celsius. The rainy season is extremely short, and even then, storms are sporadic and rarely ever affect off-shore dives or visibility.

 

2. The Great Blue Hole

This massive underwater sinkhole is over 1,000 feet wide and 400 feet deep. It’s difficult to put into words, but it’s truly awe-inspiring, and the abundance of wildlife there, including sharks, barracudas, and lobsters, makes it all the more exciting.

 

3. Largest Reef in the Western Hemisphere

The Belize Barrier Reef is the second largest reef in the world, and it’s the longest, unbroken reef in the Western Hemisphere. The reef is home to a plethora of diverse wildlife, including manatees, octopus, turtles, and dolphins.

 

4. Whale Sharks

Swimming next to these magnificent creatures is an experience you’ll never forget. These gentle giants grow up to 40-feet long and weigh in at an average of 20.6 tons, and lucky for you, they aren’t carnivorous, so you won’t have to worry about them mistaking you for a snack.

 

5. Resort Accommodations Right Next to Renowned Dive Sites

Our luxurious accommodations are located on 47 acres of breathtaking private land within the Turneffe Atoll. Still, it’s our proximity to incredible off-shore dive sites that attract scuba divers from all over the world to stay at Belize Dive Haven.

 

6. The Abundance of Diverse Wildlife

In addition to the 500 species of fish and 65 species of coral you’ll see when you stay and dive at Belize Dive Haven, there are some notable species that you won’t see in many other places, like manatees, nurse sharks, eagle rays, sea turtles, dolphins, and more!

 

7. Stay at the Largest Atoll in the Western Hemisphere

This one speaks for itself, but it’s something everyone should check off their bucket list at least once in their life.

 

8. Close Proximity to North America with Easy Access and Frequent Flights

You don’t need to take multiple long-haul flights and connect here, there, and everywhere to enjoy incredible diving and lavish accommodations. When you stay at Belize Dive Haven, even the trip getting here is stress-free. We even own a private runway at our resort if you prefer to arrive via private charter!

 

9. The Food

The cuisine in Belize is delicious, and we could explain it to you until we’re blue in the face, but you won’t truly understand just how good it is until you try it for yourself.

 

10. The Only English-Speaking Country in Central America

When you stay at Belize Dive Haven, you won’t have to deal with the stress or confusion of a language barrier, so you can focus on diving the barrier reef instead.
