By Aaron Humes: Belize continues to receive recognition from its peers for its tourism product.

At the Mexico and Central America regional leg of the World Tourism Awards 2022, Belize was named the leading dive destination in the region.

Per the Belize Tourism Board, a diving experience in Belize is unlike anywhere else, with many dive sites and degrees of difficulty to choose from and all manner of interesting things to see.

Home to the Northern Hemisphere’s largest barrier reef and world’s second-largest and three of the region’s four coral atolls, divers come here expecting – and getting – crystal clear waters, long-range visibility, and plenty of marine life to take in including corals, sharks, turtles, and stingrays.

The Belize Barrier Reef is home to the Great Blue Hole–one of the greatest geological wonders of the world. Just 43 miles off the mainland, it is easily experienced on a day trip. A site for more experienced divers, a deep dive into the Great Blue Hole will unveil a whole new world full of rare fish and stalactites not found in other sites near the water’s surface.

Apart from the famous Great Blue Hole, Hol Chan Marine Reserve, Ambergris Caye, and dozens of other sites off the coast of Belize are listed as some of the top destinations for divers in the world.

Belize was also nominated for: Mexico & Central America’s Leading Adventure Tourism Destination 2022; Mexico & Central America’s Leading City Break Destination 2022; Mexico & Central America’s Leading Destination 2022; Mexico & Central America’s Leading Tourist Board 2022.
