With an array of stunning islands, a rich culture and thrilling adventures on offer, this small country packs a big punch.

The translucent, warm waters teaming with 100 types of coral and 500 species of tropical fish are what make Belize a real tropical paradise. The barrier reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the second largest after Australia’s and is one of the world’s great natural wonders.

This is a truly unique travel experience. You’ll stay on a ‘castaway’ style, private island, work towards and gain your PADI Open Water certificate and work on a project that helps protect marine life.
