About Location
The Sapodilla Cayes Marine Reserve is locate in southern Belize. They are an uninhabited atoll in the Gulf of Honduras. The outer portion of the reserve is characterized by shallow water reefs which support a wide variety of fish. Often, large schools of jacks or spadefish will feed just off the outer slope. Nearer the bottom, angelfish, parrotfish and snappers begin to dominate. The waters are often spectacularly clear as water from the Caribbean washes over and through the reef cuts. The lagoon area is characterized by silt, sand and shallow seagrass beds.
