We took the ferry from Chetumal, Mexico down to Caye Caulker, Belize; stopping in San Pedro for immigration (and another passport stamp).  Once here it would only be a couple more days with my RY friends, so we quickly made plans to snorkel the barrier reef and get out to the Blue Hole.

The reef was the easiest one, with about 20 different tour companies operating on the island eager to take us.  We spent 5 hours snorkeling in three different spots, tried to spot manatee’s with no luck, went to a seahorse farm (of which there are no pictures because who knew seahorse were so small!) and fed the tarpon.

Finding someone to take us over the blue hole was a bit tougher; helicopter tours were far too expensive so we settled on a small plane but needed to make some quick friends to get five people to go.  Which we managed with the help of a local tour guide.  Definitely a bucket list sight to see the Blue Hole.
