By BBN Staff: Vents Magazine, an online publication covering entertainment, music, and travel since 2009, has recently listed Belize among other top-named destinations across the globe for its premier snorkeling experience.
According to the publication, research suggests that spending time on the beach is one of the best ways to improve mental health and balance a stressful schedule. It notes that research shows that ocean sounds help to activate the prefrontal cortex region of the brain, prompting emotion and self-reflection.
The article said that dedicated divers and snorkelers are hopeful that the Belize Barrier Reef will fare better than its Australian counterpart, as it is the second-largest such reef in the world and seems to be less susceptible to warming waters. Vents also noted that the “government of Belize has got on board with protecting this UNESCO world heritage site.” It further notes that Belize’s Barrier Reef is home to more than 500 species of fish, 70 kinds of hard coral and 36 types of soft coral.
Other popular snorkeling destinations mentioned on the list include the Florida cayes, the Great Australian Barrier Reef and the Galapagos Islands.
