Barrier Reef, Mexico

The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef region, also popularly known as the Great Mayan Reef or Great Maya Reef, lies within the Caribbean Sea and touches the coasts of Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. It contains the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere, stretching nearly 700 miles from the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula down through the Honduran Bay Islands.

The reef system is a diver's paradise as it is home to many species of stony coral, mollusk and myriad species of fish. There are numerous species in the reef system that are endangered or under some degree of protection, including the following: sea turtles (Green turtle, Loggerhead Sea Turtle, Leatherback turtle, and the Hawksbill turtle), the Queen Conch, the West Indian Manatee, the Splendid toadfish, the American crocodile, the Morelet's Crocodile, the Nassau grouper, Elkhorn coral, and black coral. The Reef is also home to the largest fish on the planet, the Whale Shark.

Mexico is one of the most developing cruise destinations in the world. A total Mexican flavour still exists amongst the people and their culture to accompany the pristine beaches with their stunning backdrops of cliffs and jungle.

This is a year round destination.

The weather is balmy (mid 20s Celsius) all year with August and September being hotter (in the 30s) and more humid.
