Description & Details of Isla Marisol Resort
Isla Marisol Resort offers beach combing, diving, and fishing vacations at our private island. Our professionally guided Belize tours features scuba diving, nitrox diving, snorkeling, fishing, beach combing, and seafood feasts, all set in the exotic environment of the tropics. For those who wish to learn more about Nitrox Diving, we offer the PADI Enriched Air Diver specialty to qualify you to dive with Nitrox. Enriched Air (also called Nitrox) is recreational diving's latest tool in the effort to safely extend no decompression time. Especially in the 50 to 100 foot range, enriched air can significantly lengthen your no decompression times for a single depth dive.

The view of the dawn and the sunset from our pier is spectacular. You can watch the southern stingrays swim past, along with the colorful shoals of smaller parrot fish and even the occasional nurse shark.

Join us for the best in Belize vacations on our family owned island. The nature of the Caye has remained largely the same for over 50 years whilst in the ownership of the Usher family. We want you to share the pleasure that we have enjoyed on our island. Once you get here, you will never want to leave!

Glover's Reef

is the smallest of three coral Atolls in Belize. Declared a Heritage Site by United Nations and a National Protected Area by the Government of Belize, Glover's Reef Atoll is located some 35 miles South East of Dangriga Town. It is made up of about five atoll islands, one of them being the family-owned Island of Southwest Caye, home to Isla Marisol Resort.

Southwest Caye was bought in 1942 by Mr. Jack Usher whose family has used the island exclusively since that time. The family still owns the whole Island and access to all parts of the Island is available to guests. The resort has been developed in the southern part of the Caye and is close to the private creek that divides the Southwest Caye from a neighbour Island.

Charming and rustic, each cabana includes a private bathroom, hot and cold water, Air Condition and daily housekeeping service.

Configurations of beds vary from cabana to cabana, from singles to doubles and queen beds. Our cabanas are spaced to offer you peace and quiet. The azure waters of the Caribbean are only a few steps away. You will be close to the creek and pier offering you some of the most wonderful sunrises and sunsets imaginable.

The restaurant is one focal point, acting also as a leisure area. Our restaurant room provides meals in a wonderful setting. Eating local cuisine with a magnificent view of the waves will help you enjoy our beautiful island.

THE FOOD
The cuisine at Isla Marisol Resort is said to be some of the best in Belize. Breakfast and lunch are buffet style, offering a variety of local cuisine. The evening meal is served to you in the restaurant -- perhaps seasonal conch, lobster, chicken or pork. All of our meals are prepared with seasonally available fresh fruits and vegetables from our family farms and gardens around the country. The meals include dishes from Belize, and the Caribbean. Our food is all prepared and cooked daily in our kitchen and served straight from the oven. We have an all-day supply of iced water and freshly brewed coffee, along with a selection of teas and juice for your refreshment and convenience. We endeavor to accommodate any special dietary needs. Belizean Menus are proposed. Seasonal foods will be offered. Special dietary needs can be accommodated with advanced warning. Information on menus can be e-mailed on request.

THE BAR
Relaxing with a soda or a Belizean beer in our bar is one way of spending early evenings with friends or family. The bar offers a wide variety of beverages, along with happy hour snacks. The close proximity of the beach will allow you to benefit from the propane-powered refrigeration unit that keeps the beer and soda cold!

Wildlife Viewing
Beneath the turquoise waters of Belize is an underwater world that exceeds every other Caribbean dive destination in diversity, size and scope. Extending over 185 miles north to south, the Belize Barrier Reef system is the greatest stretch of coral in the Western Hemisphere and the second largest barrier reef in the world. The reef system encompasses wall drop-offs, pinnacles, spur and groove formations, swim-throughs and more.

Beyond the barrier reef lie three enormous rings of coral, known as atolls. These formations provide divers and snorkelers with hundreds of miles of additional reef. Lighthouse Reef, the Turneffe Island Atoll and Glover's Reef Atoll together cover more than 400 square miles with a total of 140 miles of drop-off walls. Incredibly, these atolls comprise as much reef surface as the Belize barrier reef itself! These Belizean atolls, unlike Pacific atolls built on volcanoes, sit atop two parallel submarine ridges close enough to the surface to allow the formation of massive coral and sponge growths.

The reef that surrounds the five islands (called cayes, pronounced keys) that comprise Glovers Reef Atoll is a Marine Nature Reserve. The clarity of the water that surrounds Glovers and the abundance and diversity of fish species found here makes it the premier diving base in the country. Divers at Glovers regularly spot eagle rays, turtles, moray eels, southern stingrays, large grouper, barracuda, king mackerel, dolphins and several shark species, as well as almost every kind of smaller tropical reef fish. Our dives are typically wall drift dives interspersed with sand channels adorned with hard and soft coral and massive multi-colored sponges. The largest fish in the sea, the whale shark, also visits our area during the months from April to June.

Isla Marisol offers each guest 15-17 dives per week per person. Each of the 15 dive sites in the area showcases a different view of Belize's unique underworld. No two dives are ever the same. Our Padi-certified dive master will guide you through a maze of corals along the atoll's steep drop-off. We mainly dive Glover's Reef, but can also arrange dives off Southern Reef walls, Turneffe Atoll, Lighthouse Reef, the Blue Hole, Half Moon Caye, the Elbow and more. Each dive lasts roughly 45 minutes after which we return to the island for meals or simply to gather our breath for the next dive.

We are a PADI dive resort, so if you are not a certified diver, you will still be able to enjoy the aquatic wonderland. We have an instructor available who can certify non-divers upon request.

Certification of non-divers is at an additional cost.

The cost of these certifications will be added to the basic package arranged at your time of booking. We think you'll soon agree that Belize is one of the world's top dive destinations!

OUR FAVORITE DIVES
If visibility is good we like to dive a site called The Pinnacles which has big coral heads rising up 40 feet or more from the bottom. Our second and third dives are on the east side of the atoll where the water depth quickly drops off to more than 2000 feet and visibility is usually over 100 feet. We dive several sites on this side of the atoll and always dive he famous Long Caye Wall. Here, divers drop onto a big field of white sand at 40 feet, home to southern stingrays and dozens of garden eels. At the wall's crest, the sand runs like small rivers down through the coral into mini canyons. With the usual 100+ feet visibility the view over the wall gives the impression of limitless space. The wall is actually a 2000+ foot drop-off into the deep blue.

PLEASE NOTE:
* Trip minimums apply! If we do not have enough divers for our trips, especially atoll trips, we will stick to local diving sites at Glovers Reef Atoll. In that unlikely event you will still be able to enjoy excellent diving on a great number of different sites. We try to dive all 3 atolls every week but are not always successful.
* The water can get choppy, especially outside the Atoll. If the water is too rough we will not take out divers, snorkelers or anglers. Safety first!
* Keep your hands off! No divers or snorkelers are permitted to touch or take anything from the sea. No exceptions! Respect our Belizean Reef and her inhabitants. Touch only water! Take only pictures! Leave only your wake!
* There is an incredible diversity of marine life in Belize. We hope guests will be able to see much of it. However, we can't promise a dolphin, shark, turtle, moray eel will swim in front of your eyes on every dive! Rest assured, they often do!
* We cannot control the weather! Rough water may make a trip take longer than planned. It could be unusually cold. Be prepared! Normally, the water temperature is 78-85 degrees.
* All rates, policies and dive and snorkel excursions are subject to change. Check the website or contact us to see if there are any changes.

Let us know! If you have any problems or suggestions simply tell us. We welcome your feedback and want you to have a great trip!
