Belize's top snorkeling and diving site, Hol Chan Marine Reserve dazzles with its impressive coral formations and diverse marine life. Its reefs shelter a dizzying variety of creatures, including 40 types of coral and 160 different species of fish. This thriving underwater kingdom also provides a home for several mammals, including pantropical spotted dolphins and short-beaked common dolphins. The marine reserve encompasses mangroves and beds of sea grass, which ensure a safe habitat for southern stingrays and nurse sharks. You can get up close to both of these species, as they're quite used to visiting tour boats.
