Glovers Reef, Belize
Belize and Tikal-Guatemala

This morning, we woke-up at 6:00 a.m. and were ready for breakfast thirty minutes later. Destination today is: Glovers Reef with another 12 people on the boat. We were the only two to snorkel and we were very excited to do so. This was a 1.5 hours long boat ride, but worth it, filled with idyllic small cayes surrounded by crystal clear turquoise water. We snorkeled at three different areas: Middle Caye, Southwest Caye and Southwest Point. JB was our snorkel guide and taught us a lot of different marine life. He was a great ''Lion Fish'' hunter as well. We encountered: barracudas, nurse sharks, lion fish, lobsters, conch shells, parrot fish, flounder, trumpet fish, corals and sponges of all sizes, shapes and colors. Glovers Reef is a World Heritage site and the size of the corals were truly awesome - few places in the world still allow you to see that much of a pallet of colors. We had a great time snorkeling and a bumpy ride coming back to the resort around 4:30 p.m. After showering and rinsing all our snorkeling gear, a good nap on the hammock felt so good. Delicious dinner and went early to bed after a wonderful day in the ocean.
