Central America is bordered to the east by the Caribbean Sea and to the west by the Pacific Ocean. Along part of the Caribbean coast runs the vast Mesoamerican barrier reef system, which follows the coasts of Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and Honduras for over 600 miles (1000km). Marine life is at its most abundant and spectacular here among the coral. But it would be a pity not to take to the water elsewhere too, as Central America has so many other marvels. One thing is sure, between the coral barrier of Belize, Bay Island in Honduras, the mangroves of Panama or the rocky Pacific coast of Costa Rica, the diversity of the environments promises dozens of greatly varied and unforgettable snorkeling sessions.
