  1. Hi friends,

    One of the more famous of the many wonders found in Belize is the great blue hole. The hole has been described as one of the top ten diving sites in the world. It seems that one of the main attractions awaiting scuba divers in the Great Blue Hole is the plethora of sharks of varying species. Thank you...
