The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef is a coral reef system located off the coast of Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, and Honduras. It is the second-largest coral reef system in the world after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and is home to a diverse array of marine life. The reef stretches for more than 1,000 miles along the eastern coast of Central America, and is a popular destination for scuba diving and snorkeling. The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef is also an important economic resource for the region, providing livelihoods for local communities through tourism and fishing.
