Great Places to Dive & Snorkel (part 2 of Adding Sports To Your Honeymoon)

We loved Florida’s many underwater areas and the J.S. Pennekep Underwater Park with the statue of Jesus bolted to the reef was an inspiring site. Our boat was steered by a pirate-type of guy who said he had been on one of the largest ship dive discoveries.  Sure enough, a year later, National Geographic came out with the article on the magnificent finds. I often wonder what he might of retired to.

While most of us think of diving as a huge expense added to our vacation or honeymoon, we have learned The Sandals Resort guests enjoy all-Inlusive honeymoons and Sandals provide diving, lessons gear and tanks for your ocean adventures from their Resorts in the Caribbean.  Wow! They also have free wedding ceremonies for the adventurous couple that want to combine their wedd-moon goals in an awesome environment.

I found the beautiful islands of the Caribbean have so many exciting resorts and dive possibilities. Granada has two underwater National Parks/Preserves,  where diving is allowed. The unique Champagne Reef is a wonder to be enjoyed with bubbles moving upward from this volcanic ocean floor setting.  The Granada Grand Resort has won many travel awards and it Is a lovely for a beach wedding site.   

Note the seashells in this bridal bouquet.
The east coast off Costa Rica and beautiful Belize hold many wonders under the sea on their reefs. Considered some of the best dive areas of the world, it is vital we support the organizations who are trying to preserve and bring back these important waters.
Las Terrazas Resort's onsite dive shop is a PADI 5-star   full service dive center  specializing in daily diving, SCUBA instruction  and snorkeling for the island of Ambergris Caye.

I meet couples every month where one is sedentary, and the other wants active sports, gyms or adventures plus physical challenges on their honeymoon.  Often you will find the best of both at special areas of the world.  My recent article on refers to many locations that offer the snorkeling and scuba diving adventures of a lifetime while giving you very romantic hotels and resorts.
