Visible from outer space & more than 1000 ft in diameter & 412 ft deep, the Great Blue Hole is a breathtakingly grandiose sinkhole located 43 miles off the coast of Belize, known as a diver's mecca.
First discovered by Jacques Cousteau, one of the world’s most famous divers and marine conservationists, the Great Blue Hole in Belize is the best of the bunch, and every diver’s dream. Measuring 305m (1,000 ft) across and 123 m (400 ft) deep, the Blue Hole is almost perfectly circular and can be found in Lighthouse Reef Atoll.

The entire staff at Chabil Mar was extraordinary. Everyone was willing to go out of their way to accommodate the guests. The grounds are impeccable and the food is top notch. There is not a formal dining area- rather you order food and they deliver it anywhere on the property for you to enjoy, this was amazing!
