Belize Destination Weddings & Honeymoons
Cahal Pech Village Resort is the ideal venue for a romantic wedding in Belize
Imagine your perfect wedding followed by your perfect honeymoon. Imagine a dream come true, a fairytale you live, a fantasy in which you star. Imagine Cahal Pech!
Cahal Pech Village Resort is renowned for its magical setting, its wonderful facilities, its highly trained and attentive staff, and for its international reputation. Cahal Pech Village Resort has earned its well-deserved reputation as the ideal setting for your wedding day and the perfect location in which to live the most memorable honeymoon of all time.
Overlooking the Belize River Valley, and set atop the Maya hill of Cahal Pech, surrounded by lush tropical foliage, it is the largest resort in the Cayo District of Belize. You can be in Belize in just a couple of hours. Take a direct flight from Los Angeles or Texas, then enjoy the views of the countryside as our shuttle service brings you to the resort – and what a resort!
Choose rooms, suites or thatched cabanas for your stay. Play in our three swimming pools, listen to the waterfall, dine in our gourmet restaurant, relax as our highly-trained baristas serve perfect, and unique cocktails in our hotel bar, take tours into the jungle, visit Xunantunich where Maya kings held court, go to nature reserves, canoe on the river, or tube through the caves. If you would like us to arrange a trip to the beautiful coast so you can snorkel or scuba dive in Caribbean waters and explore the second largest coral reef in the world – just ask.
We will help you to plan every detail of your wedding, if you would like us to – all part of the service. As our guests, you do not need to pay extra for help with your plans. Imagine exchanging vows where a Maya king lived, surrounded by your friends and family. Would you prefer a more intimate, garden setting for just you, your loved one and witnesses? We can arrange that, too. We can even be your witnesses. You just tell us what ‘perfect wedding’ or ‘magical honeymoon’ mean to you, and we will make sure that the most important day of your life is all that it should be.
What Are the Requirements to Be Married in Belize?
It is easy to arrange the legalities. Your Belize marriage ceremony will be valid world-wide when you follow these simple steps.
Both of you must be in Belize for three days before you apply for your license. If that is impossible, don’t worry because you can apply for a special license. It costs a little more, that’s all.
We can arrange to get the application forms, but if you want to do it, yourself, you get them from the Registrar General’s Office in Belize City (Tel: 011 501 223 5625) or from the Solicitor General’s Office. You then, simply, present the completed forms to the office.
Your passports, showing when you entered Belize will act as proof, along with your original birth certificates. If either party is widowed or divorced, please bring those certificates, too. If you prefer to bring copies, make sure they are properly authenticated and are embossed with raised seals.
Your application will be processed in just two days, so you can marry the following day. Record your marriage with the Registrar General, and that is that.
A Justice of the Peace or a minister with a registered church must perform your ceremony, and two adult witnesses must be present. Both witnesses must carry photographic proof to show they are over eighteen (18). If you would like us to provide your witnesses we will happily do that.
As long as you are over eighteen (18) you do not need parental permission, and neither do you need a blood test.
That is all there is to it. Perfection, magic, and a dream come true await you at Cahal Pech Village Resort.
