Belize island sport equipment list – updated!

Snorkeling is by far my personal favorite, but I love the scuba diving, kayaking, and surfing, too. I never really got the hang of windsurfing on my last trip to the island but I’ll definitely give it another go the next time I visit. One of the most surprising “sports” I discovered
