    My son and I just loved Ambergris Caye. He had his first scuba dive there and was blown away by the experience. There is always something to amaze you on this Caye. One afternoon we encountered an islander walking with his iguana on a lead. You better Belize it!

    Thanks for the info on Ambergris Caye. I spend a lot of time in Grand Cayman, and have heard about Belize but haven’t visited before. I love to dive in Cayman, but I am beginning to notice more damage to reefs; sounds like the diving is great in Belize. Hope to visit there one day!

    Hi Jane, Yeah I ave a couple twitter friends who live on Ambergris and they say it’s amazing. Expats from the states. It’s relatively just next door to Cayman, you should try it out sometime. Let me know what you find! Cheers!

    Thanks, Ryan! I will. There’s no direct flight from Cayman to Belize – have to go thru Miami but that’s a short flight. Is there a better time of year to visit?
