More and more people are looking for ways to expand upon the
standard vacation. While many people are content to soak up the rays on the
beach, there is always an adventure seeker in the group who is looking to
explore more of what the beautiful world has to offer.
One of the best ways to challenge yourself while
experiencing some of the world's most beautiful scenery is by taking a scuba
diving vacation. There are now more scuba
than ever before that combine luxury vacation spots with
incredible diving experiences and activities that will make any other vacation
pale in comparison.
What to Look for in a
Many people may think that each diving resort is like the
next, but nothing could be further than the truth. There are many qualities to
look for when it comes to selecting the spot for your scuba trip
Location – Location
is one of the most important aspects to consider when it comes to taking a
scuba diving vacation. Out of the top 10 scuba resorts in the world, the
country of Belize is considered to be home to some of the best scuba diving
ever. This is because the country lays on the coast of 185 miles of unbroken barrier
reef, which is actually the longest in the western hemisphere. It also has
hundreds of stunning cayes and three of the Caribbean Sea's four off-shore
atolls. Belize is one the most perfect scuba destinations for North Americans
who are in search of an exotic scuba getaway that is on the same continent.
Water – The water in
this part of the world is warm all year round and is also remarkably clear
allowing for outstanding visibility underwater. Underwater visibility in some
of Belize's clearest cayes can range from 50 to 200 feet. This allows divers to
get the most out of each time they scuba, as they are able to see all the
gorgeous, multi-coloured wonders below sea level. The colours of the corals and
sponges that live in the Belize waters are beautiful and the waters boast over
400 species of exotic fish. Lucky divers often even spot turtles, whale sharks
Diving Lessons – For
those who are not certified but have always wanted to try scuba diving, a scuba
vacation is the best time to learn. Ensure your resort offers PADI certification
and lessons so that you can get the most out of your vacation.
Accommodations – In
addition to the scuba diving, a vacation should still feel like a vacation.
There are hundreds of different hotels in Central America that offer
cost-effective scuba diving and certifications, however many are not considered
to be luxury. It is important to conduct your research thoroughly before
booking your vacation to make sure your accommodations are capable of providing
the top scuba vacation that you are after. This includes good food, excellent
beach and pools, as well as hotel rooms and accommodations. Check popular
online review sites.
Enjoy an experience unlike any other and discover the
underworld of Belize.
