Silk Cayes, Placencia, Belize
Doesn’t this look like it was taken out of a postcard or a “Corona Extra” commercial?
I was left dumbstruck by the beauty of this small cay that barely has a population of 15 to 20 palms. This cay is located about 21 miles from Placencia and it is a great place to go snorkeling and scuba diving as the waters are very clear, the corals are colorful, and the fish variety is immense; including sharks, stingrays, barracudas, eels, lobsters, and many kinds of fish species.
During the past week I visited the Silk Cayes 3 times as I was doing my Advanced Diver Certification. I must admit that even with its small size, during every visit I found new things to look at and enjoy, whether it was above the surface or under it.
This is close to paradise!
