Chocoholics Rejoice

Toledo’s links to chocolate goes back to Ancient Maya days. But in present day too there are a number of chocolate factories where you can experience how chocolate is made (and taste it of course!)

If you are a chocolate lover, like us, then a date for the diary is 23rd, 24th and 25th May! Toledo hosts the annual Chocolate Festival of Belize, a unique 3-day event celebrating chocolate and culture!! Its a “must see” festival starting with wine and chocolate night, showcasing some of the areas finest chocolatiers! Saturday is an all day street festival in PG and Sunday is the closing ceremony at one of the beautiful Mayan sites, Lubantuun.

ReefCI still has availability for both the week before and after the festival, so, combine world class diving on a paradise island setting with some of the best chocolate you will ever taste!

Pilot whales, dolphins, silky sharks, huge hawksbill turtles, large rays and a WHALESHARK!! All that in the past few weeks with ReefCI!! What have you been up to??

Although March – June is official whale shark season here in Belize, for the past few years we have seen them as early as January and right through to September. 2014 started off well with sightings in January and February, so its gearing up to be another exciting whale shark season!

ReefCI are delighted to announce that our PADI Instructor extraordinaire, Tracy Allen, has accepted a new challenge!

With a background in biology, Tracy will be using her degree and focusing more of her time and energy on collecting and analysing our data.

She is a great addition to our Science team and is very excited about the new opportunity!

With the help of our recent interns, Jane and Willem, Tracy has already embarked on a new “biodiversity” study of the island and is championing our movement to reduce plastics!

But, all you novice divers out there, dont worry. Alongside Polly and Simon,Tracy will still be teaching some PADI courses!
