Portofino Beach & Dive Resort, Belize

Let’s begin with the setting. Portofino is to be found on Ambergris Caye, one of the most beautiful islands along the entire Belize Barrier Reef…which brings you to the diving. This is the second largest barrier reef in the world so you can expect some of the most remarkable underwater experiences to be found anywhere – including the stunning Blue Hole that Jacques Cousteau made famous with his voyages aboard Calypso, and a teeming and multi-coloured marine life protected by the spectacular reef 

Above the surface; a wonderful beach – one of the finest in the Caribbean – will draw you into lazy days of sun worship. In the evening, more delights. You can hop by boat from your quiet resort to the lively town with its shops, excellent local seafood restaurants and inviting nightlife.
