THE only place to stay if you are planning on diving the Blue Hole - the boat trip out for Long Caye/ Huracan diving center is a cool roll-out-of-bed 10 minutes compared with a boring 2 hour boat ride from pretty much anywhere else, so you can be back in your hammock when everyone else is boarding for the tedious trip back.
Huracan and Long Caye are also right at what is, hands down, the best diving in Belize, right within Lighthouse Atoll and the reefs of Blue Hole, Half Moon and Long Cayes.
Having spent many many trips diving off San Pedro/Ambergris, Caye Caulker, Placencia and Turneffe as well as the Sundancer, spending a week out at Long Caye is really the only way to do it if you want pure, superb diving. Huracan offers half week and week (or more!) long packages, and the all inclusive prices mean full room and board, just add on your Marine Park fees ($30 blue hole - per day - so if you really wanted three dives in the Blue Hole National Park you can do that - can't do that with any other mainland/ caye based operator as they're just too far out!), drinks and gear rental if you don;t bring your own.
Gear is super well maintained, the crew work really well together, divemaster Jerome has quite rightly been awarded best dive tour guide in belize, and you'll be treated as one of the family there, chefs Shanon and Mel will make sure you've some first class cooking too!! Absolutely hard to beat!!!!
