Although the diving is 5* (corals, fish population, relaxing current, good boat and captain, excellent dive master) it's Ruth and her Belizian Staff that make it an unforgettable and full experience.
The Island itself breathes full nature: feels like uninhabited with only influences the wind, the sea (sometimes flat as a mirror, sometimes wild and wavy) and the sun (mostly there unless a pooring rain fells down from heaven). During a nightly storm you really feel 'the earth move under your feet, the sky tumbling down'.
There seems so much personal space at Huracan Diving that different personal aura's can perfectly live together.
Talk powder helped us beat the mosquito and sandfly bites...(they seemed to like my blood...)
The food was very healthy but very tasty (perfect combination of Ruth and CC cooking).
I even had my hair cut by CC and was never as happy with a visit to the hairdresser!
The dinner, dancing and campfire with the full island (16 persons!) on New Years Eve were very amusing.
Ruth, Emric, captain Jack, CC & Junior: thanks again for this great , unbelizable experience.
We 'll be back.
