3. Swim with the Nurse Sharks at Shark Ray Alley, Belize
With warm weather and crystal clear waters, Belize is as good a place as any in the Caribbean for a snorkelling or scuba diving adventure. However, the real gem would definitely be Shark Ray Alley which is infested with harmless sharks and rays for visitors to swim alongside with. The sharks and rays are bottom feeders that have gathered overtime due to local fishermen cleaning their catches in the area. As the years went by, the fishermen got dive masters to come along as they fed the sharks, turning it into a tourist attraction. The sharks in general seem to like human interaction or at least are completely unfazed by it, allowing divers to play with them to their heart's content!
If you fancy yourself a daredevil who is even willing to swim with sharks, be sure to check out Shark Ray Alley in Belize.

With the entire island dotted with beaches and bays, the whole island of Aruba is your playground regardless of your activity of choice.
