Belize seems almost custom-tailored for romance. Just a short flight away from the United States and Canada, Belize is a beautiful, pristine country abounding with colorful birds, exotic wildlife, and perfumed orchids.
As an English-speaking country, Belize makes it very easy to get around and speak to locals. A series of paved highways make no destination more than three hours away, and yet the country is home to an astonishingly diverse landscape that includes rainforests, jungles, savannah, wetlands, a long Caribbean coastline, and hundreds of offshore islands. And the ancient Maya left behind lots of pyramids, temples, and palaces to explore.
Perhaps the perfect recipe for an unforgettable honeymoon is to mix and match time spent on the beach with time spent exploring the lush interior.
The beach and offshore islands are home to exciting activities like snorkeling, stand-up paddling, sea kayaking, scuba diving, fishing, and sailing. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the reef is world-renowned for its crystal clear waters and bright white sandy seafloor, an enormous aquarium teeming with fish and marine wildlife.
But the panoramic views and abundance of nature on the mainland also offer plenty to do and see for honeymooners, including touring animal sanctuaries, wildlife conservation areas (including the world's only jaguar monitoring program), and enjoying activities like bird watching, spelunking (exploring caves), hiking, and horseback riding.
Add in the fact that Belize restaurants serving up mouthwatering courses of fresh-caught seafood and savory Caribbean fare, and it's easy to see why so many couples choose to honeymoon in Belize.
