      Snorkeling at Shark Ray Alley and Hol Chan Marine Reserve

      San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize
      From (USD) $67 Per Person (Minimum 2)
      Highlights
      • Hol Chan ("Little Channel"): An underwater current gushing through the reef sweeps in more than 200 species of fish, turtles, sponges, coral, and sea mammals.
      • Shark Ray Alley: Attracted by fishermen cleaning their catch, rays and nurse sharks made the Alley a permanent hangout and a Top 7 Caribbean dive.
      • San Pedro: After your snorkeling adventure, you'll have time to shop and dine in a charming island village that is also one of the Caribbean's diving capitals.
      About this San Pedro, Ambergris Caye tour

      Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley are part of the 370 square-mile Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System, a World Heritage Site. Stretching from Mexico to Guatemala, and including seven local interconnected areas, it's the second largest reef system in the world, after Australia's Great Barrier Reef, and one of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet – even though biologists estimate that only 10 percent of the species that live there have been discovered.

      Charles Darwin referred to the area "as the most remarkable reef in the West Indies." Today it's the habitat of many threatened marine species: green, hawksbill, and loggerhead turtles, the American crocodile, and the West Indian manatee (doing better lately, with 300 to 700 in the area).

      Several predators call the area home as well. Jaguars live on the small islets that dot the system. Fierce ospreys glide through the skies above. And the Great Blue Hole, 50 miles offshore, is the domain of hammerhead sharks.

      Like Shark Ray Alley, the Great Blue Hole is exactly what it sounds like: a perfectly circular, indigo-blue sinkhole, 400 feet deep and nearly a thousand feet in diameter. In this jaw-droppingly beautiful part of the world, imaginative names are unnecessary.

      La Isla Bonita

      The town of San Pedro was lamented in the song La Isla Bonita ("the beautiful island"), written by Patrick Leonard, Bruce Gaitsch, and Madonna. Turned down by Michael Jackson, the song reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in May, 1987. San Pedro has since adopted the song as its nickname.
