A honeymoon in Belize is perfect for exotic adventures in glittering turquoise cays accompanied by luxury resorts, white sands, and reggae-influenced relaxation. Spend the whole day playing together in the crystal clear water, and clink cocktail glasses as the dipping sun illuminates the water.
Celebrate your nuptials in a turquoise haven
Belize honeymoons begin with diving trips from San Pedro to more than 35 idyllic sites. Hol Chan Marine Reserve is one of the most popular, due to its transcendently beautiful coral reefs and abundance of brightly colored fish. Adventurous couples will relish the unparalleled adrenaline rush that comes with swimming with sharks in Shark Ray Alley. What could be more thrilling than getting up-close and personal with these majestic creatures? See more exotic species at the Green Iguana Conservation Project.
More tranquil times are yours to enjoy at Ambergris Caye, where bike rides beneath coconut trees can be followed by fruity drinks at welcoming beach bars. Brilliantly colored butterflies flit in the flower-filled gardens at Green Hills Butterfly Ranch. Belize honeymoons have much to offer culture vultures too. The Living Maya Experience in Big Falls involves traditional Maya craft, tortilla, and chocolate making classes. The glyphs at Xunantunich protrude in resplendent patterns from the surface of the rocks atop a hill in San Jose Succotz. They are more than a millennia old.
Why not embark on an adventure together? From the beautiful Turneffe Islands, you can kayak Glover's Reef. Named after an 18th-century English pirate, these white sand islands are about as remote and edenic as planet Earth gets, crowned by palms and small cays. Belize honeymoons culminate with a dive on the world famous Blue Hole National Monument. This natural marvel is akin to a brilliant blue eye in the reef, and has become a Belize calling. Descend into a blue world a thousand foot in diameter. Beneath the stalactites adorning the overhang, sharks circle and sponges wave.
