Laughing Bird Caye National Park

Feb 09, 2018 - National Geographic Quest


This morning National Geographic Quest began the Belize season by visiting a little piece of paradise, The Laughing Bird Key. This park was created in 1991 and it covers an area of only 1,8 acres protecting astonishing coral reef. The Laughing Bird Caye was named after the laughing gull, as this used to be a nesting site for these birds. Though not many of them nest here anymore, the park is making an effort to provide a restricted nesting area to bring them back.

Today we had the opportunity to snorkel and kayak in these crystal clear Waters, with an impressive reef full of life.
