If your dream honeymoon includes perfect weather and pristine surroundings, you can’t do better than Belize. Here are a few reasons why you should choose Belize for your honeymoon vacation.

Get Some Pampering

Pamper yourself at Las Terrazas Resort.

Belize has unique resorts and lodges that range from full-service beachfront villas to luxurious jungle lodges. Take your pick of hotels with comfortable accommodations and first-class amenities. Enjoy fresh, wonderful and succulent Belizean food. You can find everything from street tacos to fine dining and international fare. Taste the local Belikin beer, a fine wine or a drink made with local rum like Traveller’s Liquors.

Get your hearts pumping when you share one of Belize’s favorite outdoor adventures. Go zip-lining through a jungle canopy where birds follow your flight. Hike through a nature preserve where you can cool off in a cascading waterfall. The majestic Belize Barrier Reef offers world-class snorkeling, diving, sea kayaking or fishing. The protected waters surrounding the reef are home to spectacularly scenic offshore islands where you can spend a day sunning and relaxing.

Get Cute and Cuddly

Belize is big on conservation, and that extends to protecting its many unusual and exotic animals. Visit a forest preserve to spot mountain tapirs and howler monkeys. Ocelots, jaguars and coatimundis roam the forests, and tropical birds like toucans and scarlet macaws fill the trees. Visit The Belize Zoo, which is a sanctuary for orphaned and injured wildlife or take your adventure to the next level by discovering waterfowl and sea turtle nesting sites on the offshore islands.

Enjoy the Scenery

Spend time on the water to rekindle your romance. Take a scenic river boat cruise. Enjoy dinner on a private pier where you can watch the Caribbean Sea. Everywhere you go, you’ll see beautiful flowers, colorful birds and stunning wildlife.

Do Everything, Or Do Nothing At All
