How to Experience the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef in Belize

Mesoamerican Barrier Reef in Belize


In case you slept through the geology class you were forced to take because it was required, you may be surprised to learn that you would have learned amazing facts about the earth’s geology. Among the most remarkable natural wonders are reefs. According to the non-profit group, reefs are built from the seafloor up as a direct result of coral polyps secreting layers of calcium carbonate from beneath their bodies.

Depending upon the type of coral doing the secreting, some deposits are soft while others are hard. All of them morph into flexible organisms that, upon close examination, look just like ordinary plants and trees. They grow and mature over time by feeding on algae, small fish, and zooplankton.


Discover The Belize Barrier Reef On Your Vacation

Is this enough science to interest you in seeing one of these natural wonders up close and in person? You’re in luck. The second most magnificent coral reef on the planet happens to run along the Belize shoreline, and given the nation’s proximity to the U.S., you can have breakfast at home and see the reef in person that afternoon.

Having an equally awesome place to stay during your time in-country is the final element needed for your Belize Mesoamerican Barrier Reef adventure, so why not stay as close to the reef as you can get by selecting Belizean Dreams Resort as your base? This lush property — near the charming village of Hopkins — is the ideal vacation destination since you get optimal access to the reef.

Enjoy luxurious accommodations, world-class dining, a wealth of onsite amenities that include complimentary use of kayaks, an infinity pool, lush gardens, and impeccable concierge services that will make you feel as though you’re the only guests on the Belizean Dreams property. Then it’s time to meet the reef.
