WHALE SHARKS, WINE AND CHOCOLATE!!
Toledo hosts the annual Chocolate Festival of Belize, a fun filled cultural extravaganza during Commonwealth weekend in May!
There are many things that made it an amazing experience. I guess top of everyone’s list would be the location. I have never stayed on a ‘desert island’ before and was lucky that my arrival was set against a backdrop of perfect Caribbean weather.
Next, for a beginner, comes the instructors and both have been fantastic; Simon from the UK and Tracy from the USA.
I agree their ‘office’ is in a great location but they both work harder and longer days than many people I know, ensuring students get the most from their course. Simon was my Open Water instructor and he guided me and the other student through the training with patience and good humour, especially when neither of us took particularly well to being underwater on our first day.
It was an intense first week with videos, practical sessions, knowledge reviews, a break to swim with a whale shark, and numerous presentations that introduced us to what is at the same time both a fascinating and daunting world of marine conservation.
It came as no surprise that bedtime tends to be early on the island. Thankfully, the staff here ensure that food, transport and comfort are dealt with smoothly, allowing you to concentrate on the learning.
