Isla Marisol

Southwest Caye, Isla Marisol, Glover's Reef Atoll, Stann Creek, Belize

At Isla Marisol, almost 40 mi (67 km) off Belize's coast at Glover's Reef, after a good night's sleep in an air-conditioned cabaña, and a breakfast of mango and johnnycake, you can dive "The Pinnacles," where coral heads rise 40 feet from the ocean floor. Then, after a lobster or fish dinner and a few Belikins on a pier 100 feet into the Caribbean, wander back to your cabin, a breezy retreat built of tropical hardwoods.
