Lighthouse Reef is located about 80 kilometres (50 mi) southeast of Belize City. The atoll is of oblong shape, approximately 35 kilometres (22 mi) long from north to south, and about 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) wide. It forms a shallow sandy lagoon with an area of 120 square kilometres (46 sq mi) and a depth between 2 to 6 metres (6 ft 7 in to 19 ft 8 in) deep.[3] The reef is one of the best developed and healthiest reefs in the Caribbean, "with an emergent fringing reef, sloping fore reef with a coral rimmed shelf edge, vertical coral walls, and numerous patch reefs in the shallow central lagoon."

What we're about

If you love to get out and see the world like I do, whether it's a weekend camping trip to the Catskills or a week long vacation to Italy or a visit to one of our many great National Parks, this group is a great place to meet some friends and plan your next Awesome Adventure! We will meet once a month or so at a local pub to get to know one another and discuss ideas for our next trip. How about a fall camping trip to see the foliage and hike up to Old Rag in Shenandoah or a summer trip to visit the granite bluffs along the coast of Acadia and have some lobster? What about a sailing live aboard in the Bahamas or a scuba trip to The Great Barrier Reef? Perhaps running with the bulls in Spain or an African safari are on your bucket list? Maybe a snorkel and rain forest adventure in Belize to see the world famous Blue Hole? These are a few ideas for some Awesome Adventures in the coming months. I look forward to making some new friends and sharing some great ideas you might have about planning our next Awesome Adventure!

This group is solely for private individuals who are looking for a fun independent group to travel with.

Contacting group members unsolicited will result in removal from the group. Please be considerate and RSVP when you're sure you can attend an event. If you can't make it please update you're status ASAP (min 48 hours before the event) so others who are waiting can attend and so I can plan accurately. I frequently negotiate group discounts and need to know how many will be attending. Those who no-show without a valid reason will be deleted from the group.

Please post an accurate photo of yourself in your profile for safety and liability reasons. I can't approve any members who don't have a photo posted.

The Organizers spend many many hours planning fun events for the group and we only ask that you be an active participant. Please read the event descriptions! Please read the comments!

It's inconsiderate for people to simply click the RSVP button and then complain when they didn't realize the meeting time or location changed because they aren't up to date on information.
