From the Spanish-style buildings surrounded by lush tropical gardens to the breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea, you have arrived in paradise. The hotel directly faces the famous Belize Barrier Reef, found just a half-mile offshore. Containing three of the Western Hemisphere’s four total atolls and the second-largest continuous coral reef in the world, Belize is a diver's haven. A kaleidoscope of habitats is only a short 5-10 minute cruise from the SunBreeze pier.

Insurance: Travel insurance is not included. REEF strongly recommends that each participant purchase adequate dive travel insurance to protect you from unforeseen circumstances. REEF partners with both DiveAssure and DAN to offer travel insurance packages specifically for divers. REEF will receive a portion of the proceeds from travel insurance purchases when you click on the following affiliate links for DiveAssure or DAN.

How to Get There: Participants should book round-trip flights to Belize City (BZE) arriving on Saturday, February 15, and departing on the following Saturday, February 22. SunBreeze Hotel will then book a short 17-minute domestic flight to San Pedro Johnny Grief Municipal Airport (SPR) via Maya Island Air. Participants will then be met at the airport for luggage and transfer assistance. Flights to BZE from your departure city are not included in the price and must be booked by the participant, but the domestic flight from BZE to Ambergris Caye is included and will be booked by the vendor closer to the time of departure. You can find information about domestic flight times and baggage allowance for Maya Island Air here for planning your travel.

Passports, Documentation, and Visas: Visitors to Belize must possess a passport valid for at least three months after the date of arrival and a return ticket with sufficient funds to cover their stay. Visitors are given a one-month stay, after which an extension can be applied for with the Immigration Department. Visas are not required for citizens of the United States and its territories, Canada, the United Kingdom and its territories, the European Union, the Caribbean, and Central American countries.

COVID-19 Considerations: It is the participant's responsibility to ensure that they understand and comply with all local requirements (for entry and visit as a tourist) of the host destination and for exit and entry requirements for their home country. Be prepared for your plans to change. Be sure your travel insurance covers COVID-related issues. No travel is risk-free during the COVID-19 pandemic. Countries may further restrict travel or bring in new rules at short notice, for example, due to a new COVID-19 variant. Please be aware that REEF is not a travel agent. We are doing our best to interpret the information provided by our trip vendor and the host country’s government COVID-19 webpages.
