Our friend David Wade rallied up a few friends and headed out to one of the most sought after destinations in Belize. Can you guess what place I’m talking about?

It’s a site that attracts thousands of divers per year to Belize and Ambergris Caye, and may be the very reason that Ambergris has been named Trip advisor’s Number One Island in the World- TWO YEARS IN A ROW! Any idea yet? That’s right- The Blue Hole!

David is an island resident and student at The Washington University of Health and Science (WUHS) here in San Pedro, and when like many of us (myself at least), when there’s an opportunity to go out to this amazing marine reserve- we DIVE in!

David and the gang went out with Amigos del Mar. The first time I was at the Blue Hole was with Amigos as well. It was an amazing trip; however I’m more of a snorkeler. For people that have dived the site, the sights at 130 feet are worlds apart from what we see from the water’s surface!

I’m a sucker for a fuzzy face, a feathered face, a face with fins or even one with scales! I am in love with the creatures and the flora that are synonymous with Belize and every opportunity I have to learn more about them and explore their wild habitats I am there! I’m the happiest when I’m snorkeling the reef and swimming with turtles, however my passion is not just limited to critters! Laced throughout this compact jungle gem of a country live the Kriol, Maya, Garifuna, Mestizo and Spanish people, and experiencing each culture, especially their celebrations is one of my favorite pastimes.
