Scuba Diving and Snorkeling the Coral Reef
Video prepared by Blake Newson, who stayed at the Green Parrot!
The Belize Coral reef is the second largest in the world. 180 uninterrupted miles long stretching the entire length of Belize. The reef is home to more than 100 coral species, over 5000 species of fish and hundreds of invertebrates, many of which are rare and endangered. This is a snorkeling and scuba diving paradise. No spear guns are ever allowed.
Fishing here is great! Whatever style you choose, from deep sea to trolling, you might catch Permit (a popular local fish), grouper, or snapper to name just a few. And the Green Parrot Chef will be happy to prepare your catch for you. On fishing tours, equipment is provided for you.
Monkey River Boat Tours.
Take a boat ride up the Monkey River. Look and listen for the large population of Howler Monkeys. You will also see many other wild species such as Crocodiles, Spider Turtules, Tropical Birds of many kinds, and Exotic Flowers and Plants. Be sure to bring your camera and binoculars for this one!
Cave Tubing and Exploring.
Join a group gently floating through one of many Belizean caves, see underground waterfalls, magnificent rock formations, and actual Mayan artifacts preserved over hundreds of years. After cave tubing, take a swim in a pool of clear fresh water listening to the rush of a nearby waterfall.
The only one in the world. Tours are interesting and fun but remember, Jaguars are nocturnal animals and generally sleep during the day.
