Two of my
favorite places for sailing are in Central America: Belize and Honduras. Both are located on the Reef of Honduras, the second longest
barrier reef in the world. This location, along with steady trade winds, makes for
not only good sailing, but also great scuba diving. And nearby Mayan ruins make for great
land-based trips too....
|Belize is a small, but extraordinarily beautiful country just
south of Mexico on the Caribbean Sea. Formerly known as British Honduras, it is one
of the few under-populated countries in Central America. The area was
once a part of the Mayan empire and spectacular Mayan ruins, many still unexcavated,
are frequent. Belize is well known to sailors, divers and naturalists alike for it's
incredible natural resources, still largely unspoiled. English is the official
Honduras is a much
larger and more populated country, southeast of Guatemala and also bordering the Caribbean
Sea. It is famous among sailors and divers alike for its jewel-like ocean waters and
incredible coral reefs. Honduras was once a major center for the Maya population.
Spanish is the official language.
How about Diving?
The diving on
the Reef of Honduras is some of the best in the world. There will be some underwater
photographs I shot on the B&H Photo Page, but trust me, they do no real justice to the
spectacular diving in either Belize or Honduras.
Mayan civilization has long
intrigued archeologists and travelers alike. In Belize there are fantastic ruins in
several places throughout the county--most of which are still being excavated....
