Blue Marlin Lodge

South Water Caye, South Water Caye, Stann Creek, Belize

A good, though pricey, base for fishing, snorkeling, and diving trips, this Belizean-owned resort at the north end of beautiful Southwater Caye is only 50 yards from the reef. Accommodations, which spread out over half the caye, range from cozy wood cabins to a trio of concrete dome "igloos" to standard rooms. Your bed is so close to the sea that the sound of lapping waves may lull you to sleep. The resort has its own PADI dive shop and boats for diving and fishing, and you can choose from a range of packages. Swap stories with other travelers in the bar and restaurant, where you'll have local home-style meals.
