One of the biggest tourist attractions in Belize is Hol Chan. Off the coast of Caye Caulker, Hol Chan is majestically beautiful. People from all over the world come to this wonderful display of nature.
Hol Chan means little channel in Mayan. The water makes you feel that you are swimming in the sky. The water is so clear at parts. It’s hard to believe that this was not a swimming pool.
I knew my gopro would come in handy. As I was taking the photos, all I could think about was showing you all this experience. It’s such a blessing to be swimming in the Caribbean. May I remind you all, this was in the end of February/ early March.

Our tour guide started taking photos as well. He had his own gopro. The more photos he started taking, the more I thought about his intentions. He is taking photos to keep his business afloat. Those are not my reasons now. I take these photos for you all. I read some of you can’t travel due to illnesses or other reasons. I’m blessed to be able to show you all the world through my photos.
Snapped back into reality, our group continued to go further into the sea. I had to catch up. I was too busy being lost in my thoughts, while my group kept swimming. Swam like a dolphin swimming for it’s life. I’m not about to get lost in the sea.
The crystal blue water kept taking my breath away, in all ways possible. The beauty left me speechless and the sea’s currents would occasionally give me a mouthful of salty water. Wouldn’t trade this moment for anything in the world.
Eventually, I saw a turtle. I have seen turtles before but never one in the wild. It looked so peaceful and moved slow. The turtle truly had the Caribbean attitude.
In this underwater paradise, my worries and stress were gone. For once in a long time, I felt like I was finally on vacation. Lost in the feeling of the moment, I got on the boat. Our next underwater adventure was about to start.

Looks gorgeous. 🙂
Yes very turquoise.
Beautiful photos. I’ve never gotten the chance to swim in truly warm water. I’ve swum in Mexico and certainly it was warmer than San Diego water but I wouldn’t have called it warm. That must be an awesome feeling. How wonderful that it is so clear, too.
As a kid, in San Diego, on vacation, I would go out beyond the waves and hang out on my canvas raft for hours, never worrying about what was underneath. Then, as an adult, I saw jaws! 🙂
Amazing photos 💕 Thnx for sharing
No problem 🙂 any time! I love sharing this to everyone
What a wonderful experience 🙂
Fell in love with it, looks so relaxing and peaceful. Gonna include it on my bucket list!
Beautiful pictures! I got to go to Belize on a cruise last year, but we didn’t snorkel there-we snorkeled in Honduras which looked just like your pictures! There was lots of coral though, it was the highlight of my trip!
I look forward to that!
Enjoy it every single reading of it, nice one 👏🏻😁
Amazing post and photos, specially the turtle. The bluest of blue waters I have seen.
Wow beautiful pictures 🙂 reminds me a little of Gozo the water around some of the Greek isles is beautiful too but I’ve never seen water so blue as what you’ve captured, stunningly beautiful.
Must. Go. Now!
