Adrenalin junkie? Then Belize’s Great Blue Hole is for you

I know, I know, the name doesn’t do it justice but the Great Blue Hole off the coast of Belize is a must if you’re travelling through Central America. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site back in 1996, the Great Blue Hole was originally a limestone cave that started to form about 150,000 years ago. Today, it’s one of the greatest places for experienced divers to explore.

The deepest point of the Great Blue Hole lies at 124 metres, but if that doesn’t exhilarate you enough, then perhaps spotting nurse sharks, giant groupers, and other reef sharks might! Yup, they’re all here in this stunning part of the world.

If diving isn’t your thing, you can take to the skies on a Blue Hole tour that flies you over the Belize Barrier Reef and the Great Blue Hole. Or, if you’ve got $15,000 handy, there’s a Blue Hole skydiving experience you’re sure to remember!
