I’ve been to quite a few dive resorts. Hamanasi is hands down, the best so far. Thank you for a wonderful time.

This is my 6th Belize dive adventure in the past 18 years and my best ALL around experience.

Overall, great experience! Staff made you feel extremely welcome and tended to your every need. Tours gave you a taste of Belize and the resort gave you a taste of heaven!

Wonderful stay, beautiful surroundings. The staff was unfailingly friendly and accommodating. Adventures were great and well organized!

Everything surpassed our expectations. We came here as new diver because we wanted an operation we could trust and we found that here.

This was the perfect getaway and reunion with best friends. The access to both Diving and Tours cannot be matched

Just keep doing what you’re doing… The Mayan tour history was incredible; the guide was extremely knowledgeable and profoundly connected to his heritage.

Hamanasi helped introduce my family to the Garifuna & Maya people of Belize. Everything is so close – the mountains, caves, waterfalls, animals, ruins – this is such a peaceful country with rich culture and a people that cares about the environment. What a hidden gem! Thank you!

Wonderful warm staff, excellent guides, variety of inland tours, very comfortable rooms
