Get ready to have an adventure of a life time in Belize with Yacht Foot! With over 300 islands and miles of coast line, this little country has a lot to offer, including famous Glover’s Atoll. Located 40 miles off shore from Placencia in protected waters, it is in the top 10 places in the world for snorkeling. It was also one of the highlights of our trip last year, and we are doing it again! The Reef system is truly remarkable with its untouched beauty, amazing snorkeling, great scuba diving, flat water sailing and unforgettable memories.
