Spectacular snorkeling on the reef. We stayed at a hostel right on the water near the endge of town (which is very small). If taking the "ferry" to Puerto Barrios in Guatemala, BE CAREFUL. The weather can change quickly once you leave port. We had a 2 hour long near death experience with 20 foot waves crashing on us and then throwing us into the wind. The little dingy ferrys are not intended for this trip. But the pilot got us through. Lots of environmental expeditions based in Belize and in the area. There are really only 2 roads through the country that are even slightly maintained... until you get into the city. The politicians are extremely corrupt and so are the police. I'll write more later - just trying out this service.
