If you are a scuba diver then the Caribbean is a dream destination for a scuba diving holiday. The waters are often calm (and, of course, warm) and you will be setting off on your adventure from some of the planet’s best beaches. The creatures you find in the water are spectacular in the extreme, as is the coral and other fauna. The biggest challenge you face is which diving spot to choose from a seemingly endless list. It is actually hard to go wrong and all the major destinations offer scuba experiences beyond parallel.
If you would like to explore a shipwreck then Aruba has one that is teeming with life and hidden mysteries. Close by, the island of Bonaire is renowned for the treasures it offers within its National Marine Park and famous sites such as the Alice in Wonderland Reef and the ‘1,000 steps’. The latter’s name is misleading and you will spend more time enjoying your swim than walking underwater. The Blue Hole of Belize is a vertical cave almost 400 feet deep and demands to be explored to view stalactites and the resident sharks. Give the Turks and Caicos islands a go for superb visibility underwater and the remarkable marine life that thrives in this region. Come back to the Caribbean year after year to find something new.
