Both Honduras and Belize offer great diving spots.

The Blue Hole in Belize is the most famous (if I remember correctly) and very nice, however, the Island diving in Honduras is much much cheaper and the diving is just as good.

You can do a PADI Open Water or Advanced for $250 USD !!!!!

Also Balize is expensive relative to the rest of the countries surrounding it.... however.... the Cayes are well worth a visit anyway !

As for elsewhere..... can't help as not been there
