Top 10 Reasons Belize is Best for Honeymoons
1. There are many price points for Belize vacations
There is a large range of types of accommodations available in Belize. You can stay at huge, luxurious hotels, rent an entire private island, or look into the many economy-lodging options. Over-the-water bungalows are a very popular choice in Belize. During the low season, you can find great deals.
2. Belize is great to visit year-round
The temperature in Belize varies by 10 degrees Fahrenheit year-round. Even during the rainy season, it is common to see less than an hour of rain daily. The weather is essentially perfect. Even if you’re staying at a resort without air conditioning, you will be comfortable sleeping with the nighttime temperatures and the ocean breeze.
3. Belize has a fascinating history with rich culture
Belize is a melting pot of many cultures. A wonderful variety of people, cultures and civilizations have called Belize home. This includes immigrants from Mexico, the Caribbean, Asia, India, the Mediterranean, Africa, Spain, the Americas, and the Ancient Maya.
4. Belize cares about the environment
The environment in Belize is widely celebrated. There are signs everywhere urging locals and visitors to conserve water and energy. The ecosystem can be very fragile, but the people who live and visit Belize take special care not to harm it.
5. Belize is BEAUTIFUL
Belize is truly a paradise. Belize is home to the bluest water I’ve ever seen, expansive beaches, lush jungles and Mayan ruins. There is something for everyone in Belize. Not to mention, all of the destinations are picture-perfect.
6. The food in Belize is delicious
I mentioned the melting pot of cultures, right? The years and years of mixing cultures have created some of the most interesting and delicious dishes. There is an abundance of fresh seafood that can’t be matched. Some resorts even let you catch your lobster dinner! Dining is definitely an experience here.
7. Belize isn’t crowded
You’re on your honeymoon – you deserve some privacy! While it is possible to make friends during your vacation in Belize, it’s always nice to know you can have some privacy when you need it. Many resorts in Belize have villa style accommodations. Instead of having rooms on every side of yours, you can stay in your own private house.
8. There’s so much to do in Belize
The combination of the Belize Barrier Reef and the Ancient Mayan ruins make for top-notch excursions. Whether you prefer to go scuba diving, fishing, hiking, riding, or site seeing, you will find your perfect adventure in Belize.
9. Belize is relaxed
Yes, this might contradict my previous point, but your Belize vacation can be whatever you want it to be! There are many destinations with beautiful pools and expansive beaches that allow for an extremely relaxing vacation. It’s actually a rule that every resort has to have enough hammocks for everyone. Just a joke, but they really are everywhere! Especially if you are staying on one of the Cayes, you'll feel like you're living the "island life."
10. Belize is close to the U.S.
This means reasonable flights for those that live in the US! Once you land in Belize City, there are many commuter flights, as well. That way you can quickly get to your final destination and not have to spend a ton of time travelling.
Belize is one-of-a-kind. It’s the perfect solution for those newlyweds who can’t decide between an adventurous honeymoon and a relaxing honeymoon.
