The Northern Cayes

45 minutes north of Belize City by boat is Caye Caulker, a small caye that is one of the jumping off points for those interested in snorkeling, diving, and enjoying Belize's renowned reef system. Many come to Caye Caulker to dive in the Blue Hole, the famous dive site that is a nearly perfect circular sinkhole going deep to the sea floor. But I will not be diving the Blue Hole because it costs $200USD, so instead I went snorkeling. The snorkeling was great, we spotted tons of marine life including Manatees, Black and Nassau Groupers, Tarpon, Stingrays, Nurse Sharks, and a Green Turtle.
