Hol-Chan is an amazing marine reserve that is located approximately 3 miles off the coast of Ambergris Caye. Within the marine reserve, there is Hol-Chan Marine Park, and it is considered the most popular snorkeling spot in Belize.
By boat, Hol-chan is only 10 minutes away from San Pedro and 40 minutes away from Caye Caulker. The reason why the site is popular for snorkeling and diving is because it has a vibrant community of marine wildlife. On a typical day, anyone snorkeling or diving in the area will encounter numerous types of fishes, sea turtles, manta rays, crabs, eels, lobsters and friendly nurse sharks.
