The month of romance, courtship, and just love in all its forms has been fast approaching. February is practically here, and with it, the yearly enchantment—or disdain, depending who you are—over Valentine’s Day. And while the world may celebrate February 14th with chocolates, heart-shaped everything, and bouquets, in Belize the swoon-worthy efforts are out-of-the-box. When planning your Valentine’s getaway, let the Belize Biltmore Plaza help you fall in love again with your significant other—and with Belize.
What makes Belize Biltmore Plaza the ideal weekender destination is its affinity to being a great base. Only about 15 minutes away from the international airport, staying at Biltmore cuts back on time spent traveling. This means you have more time to enjoy the conveniently thought-out amenities the hotel offers. Once you arrive with your sweetheart, grab a cocktail at the Jaguar Bar, their most recent addition, before lounging by the pool.
This Valentine’s, enjoy the seclusion from Belize City’s bustling nature in the cocooned respite that is Biltmore Plaza. For dinner, head to the on-site Bistro Restaurant which offers an exceptional full wine list. Dine on the three-course special on the terrace so you can enjoy the cuisine with the outdoor views.
A Valentine’s City Break
Start your Valentine’s getaway by breaking out of the (heart-shaped) box. Instead of a romantic picnic in a park, why not a romantic picnic at a literal Maya ruin? Biltmore Plaza can help you book a day trip to the nearby Maya site of Altun Ha. The ancient Maya city sits just about an hour away from Belize City and is one of the lesser-trafficked sites. This means you and your better half will more than likely have the entire place to yourself. Summit the thousand-year-old pyramids and learn the history of fascinating people before picnicking on the expansive green lawn.
For an experience closer to the city, why not try a Belize City tour? Teeming with history hundreds of years old, Belize City has a lot to unpack. Do so with your Valentine and learn the stories of the destination you’re staying at. Snap photos at the Baron Bliss Lighthouse, or walk across Central America’s oldest swing bridge. Nothing more screams romance than creating new memories together to look back on fondly as the years go by.
If you’d like to be the ultimate romantic, why not plan a honeymoon during this time? Biltmore Plaza offers an exclusive Honeymoon Package to newly-knotted love birds, at a price point you’ll love. Spend two nights and three days at their award-winning hotel, and use it as a gateway to everything Belize has to offer. One of the highlights includes a trip to the famed Altun Ha, and if you’re both history buffs, you can also opt to go on a Lamanai Maya site visit, as well. But if you’re a thrill-seeking couple, switch Lamaanai out for a cave tubing/zipline combo. The Honeymoon Package includes a complimentary bottle of wine, daily breakfast, a half-day Maya ruin adventure, a full-day rainforest adventure, and even airport transfers.
