About the Belize weather
Weather is always a matter of debate when planning a honeymoon, but even if you decide to spend yours in Belize between June and mid-November, you two will receive priceless wedding gifts: affordable rates at Cahal Pech thanks to seasonal specials and courtesy of fewer numbers of tourists at this time of year.
Dry season runs from late November to late April, but prices are steeper because this is high season when tourists flock to Belize for the fun and sun. Since you’re probably looking for the ultimate in privacy and romance, why not save money by coming during the green season when you could possibly have a stretch of beach all to yourselves?
Awesome Belize adventures
-Cahal Pech Resort offers tours to Guatemala’s Tikal ruins, so if you’d like to see a quintessential Mayan historical site and you both want to get your passports stamped by the Guatemalans, put this trip at the top of your honeymoon list. By the way, Cahal Pech Resort, located in San Ignacio, actually sits top ancient Mayan ruins, so you’ll be right in the middle of history.
-Plan to venture into the spooky interior of the ATM cave, once an epicenter of Mayan ritual and ceremony. This world-class cave is filled from ceiling to floor with artifacts, relics and even a crystallized human skeleton, so this (and cuddle time) could wind up being the highlight of your Belize honeymoon.
-Explore jungles courtesy of another vibrant Cahal Pech Village Resort tour that showcases the nation’s biological diversity. Swim Belize rivers located deep in these jungles—and if you two seek the ultimate sensuous kiss, do so under a gorgeous waterfall. Guides promise not to look!
-Investigate cultural wonders concentrated in this diverse society where a melting pot that runs the gamut from Europeans to Mayans put all of the flavors of Belize on display no matter where you go on the mainland or islands. From diverse cuisines to art--and from festivals to museums—you two couldn’t get bored if you tried!
-Get wet! Indulge in some of the most exciting marine adventures in the Caribbean—each of which can be booked through the Cahal Pech team. Dive Glover Reef Atoll, set off from Caye Caulker on fishing and deep sea diving trips. Dive the Blue Hole, a one-of-a-kind spot made famous by Jacques Cousteau. What better way to celebrate your new marriage than by descending into this limestone cavern together? Just save the kisses for after you get back into the dive boat and remove your snorkel gear!
