Belize Barrier Reef

Belize City, Belize

In 1942, decades before Belize became an international destination coveted by divers, Charles Darwin studied the evolution of its incredible coral reefs. The Western Hemisphere’s largest barrier reef is still evolving, but it’s only one of many that support a Pixar-like array of colorful fish, sponges and more than 70 species of coral.  Oh, and above ground, Belize throws in some Mayan ruins for bonus.
