A place to stay in Belize that has awesome snorkeling from...

My husband and I are planning a trip to Belize(possibly Ambergris Caye) in May. We are looking for a place to stay on the beach that has a wonderful snorkeling right there! Grateful for any suggestions this is our first time to Belize. Theresa and Larry

You won't find any great snorkeling from shore on Ambergris Caye. The reef is close, but not that close.

For walk in snorkeling, look at the outer atolls. South Water Caye is supposed to be nice. We stayed on Tobacco Caye last month, it was fun, but three days was plenty, it's very small. Only five acres.

The atolls and South Water Caye, where I spent the holiday weekend. Stayed at Blue Marlin Lodge, which is fantastic. They are remote, quiet, secluded locations. Ambergris is our most visited destination, the reef and snorkeling are less than a mile from shore.
