Hol Chan Marine Reserve is off the coast near San Pedro, Belize. The reef became a reserve in the late 1980’s and is now a flourishing ecosystem of colorful coral and various species of aquatic wildlife. In fact, thanks to conservation efforts snorkeling Hol Chan is like swimming in an aquarium.
During our two-hour snorkeling trip in August we saw barracuda, sting ray and even a turtle! We’ve snorkeled in Bali, Exuma and The Florida Keys and Hol Chan is my favorite because of what you are about to see…
We gave it a big thumbs up!
Booking snorkeling tours in easy. We recommend advance booking between November and late April as this is high season. Otherwise, you can likely wait until you are in the country as we did. Happy Exploring!
