You’ve said “I DO,” so now what? Get a head start on honeymoon planning in Belize. This time is a much deserved holiday to celebrate the start of an exciting new chapter in your life. Ultimately, it will be one you remember for the rest of your life. Make it special by honeymooning in Belize. Still a relatively undiscovered gem and undeveloped nation, Belize is perfect for couples looking to honeymoon off the beaten track and enjoy the best of both the Caribbean and Central America. The fact that the country is English-speaking and easily accessible from North America are also added bonuses.

Honeymoon off the beaten track and enjoy the best of both the Caribbean and Central America.

If you’re looking for ultimate relaxation after your big day, escape to a tropical island. Belize has over 200 islands dotting the coastline, ranging from bustling and lively to completely rustic and isolated. Whichever you choose, enjoy sandy beaches, the serene sea, and sunset walks together. For nature lovers and adventurers, choose a jungle honeymoon where you can spend your days exploring, dine under the stars at night and wake up to the noise from the surrounding wildlife in the morning. Belize is home to historic Maya ruins, dense jungles and abundant nature-based adventures to explore together. 

Whatever honeymoon holiday you picture, Belize is a heavenly destination to start your new life together. And these hotels make your honeymoon even more magical with special extras and offers.
