We'll be there in late February/early March to do some diving, so I'm as curious as you are to see the responses from people who know what they're talking about. Are you there now? If so, how is it after the hurricane?
shc: We will be at the Caribe Island over most of the time you are there. Will look forward to meeting you. The dive shop at the Caribe does bookings with the local dive operators and to my knowledge do not run their own dive boats. I believe they can book you with any dive operation. I personally use Gaz Coopers Dive Belize but there are many other great operations. Looking forward to meeting you.
