1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

1. Snorkeling with the whale sharks. 2. Good diving instruction to next level of qualification. 3. Chance to do conservation surveys as something more than that which you usually do on a regular dive vacation. 4. chance to dive in Caribbean at dive sites that are not crowded, never were there other dive boats at the sites we dived, thus only 4 to 8 divers at the site from the boat.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

1. To the extent your baggage allowance allows it, take items identified including any surplus dive gear, given that special things and items of quality e.g. towels can be difficult to get in southern Belize. 2. Recognise you are staying on a Caye/island off a less developed country, so accommodation is not luxury but adequate, and pack accordingly e.g need tough not fine clothing.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, locals were employed for boat driving, cooking, housecleaning etc. Supported conservation with surveys etc as would be expected.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very good.
