Belize, in Central America, is known for its incredible underwater landscape and also for an amazing natural formation called the Great Blue Hole.
One of the best spots for diving in the world, the Hole is a brilliant dark blue pupil 1,000 feet across surrounded by an iris of lighter blue-green, sitting in the middle of the Belize Barrier Reef 43 miles off of the country’s tropical coast.
However, the destination is indicated for experienced divers. We explain: There’s usually only enough oxygen to stay down for about 8 minutes exploring the stalactite gallery before starting the ascent back up.
The Great Blue Hole is a must go destination for divers. Explore this mystery!
