The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef
By: Cole Schafer
Where Is it?
The Mesoamerican Reef region lies within the Caribbean Sea and touches the coasts of Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. It stretches up to 585 miles (943 km)
Whats In it?
Dazzling arrays of different types of coral form this underwater wilderness, and provide homes and food to hundreds of fish species, marine turtles, and sharks. Along the shores, mangroves provide habitat for fish and shorebirds as well as protect coastal areas from the damage associated with hurricanes and strong storms.
Whats the Cost?
The cost to fly from Dallas to Guatemala is roughly $846.00 round trip. The flight should only be about 3 hours too. One of the cheaper hotel costs would be 20/per night at the ciudad Hotel. The average cost to go scuba diving in this reef is $128
