Belize is bordered by Mexico, Guatemala, and the Caribbean Sea. There are many excellent honeymoon destinations in the Caribbean and Belize is no exception. This small country has become a prime honeymoon destination for any couple looking for white beaches, beautiful rain forests, and the epicenter of what used to be the ancient Maya civilization. This is where nature’s magnificence meets history. Throw in the second largest barrier reef, and you have eco-perfection. Your romantic Belize honeymoon awaits!

There is a large emphasis on the local cuisine, from Mayan, Creole, and Indian. The food is diverse and tasty enough to keep you happy. 

Belize comprises approximately 200 islands that make for an ideal beach honeymoon. The fishing, diving, and snorkeling can’t be beat. But Belize gets even more interesting. One of Belize’s major attractions is the Great Blue Hole, beloved by scuba divers around the world for its clear waters and unique marine life. The Great Blue Hole is literally an underwater sinkhole. It is deep, it is blue, and it is an incredible sight to behold. The sinkhole is the result of water seeping through sea caves, which are also a must-see in Belize. With more than 239 miles of coastline, Belize is all about its clear, crystalline waters. 

Belize has more than one Blue Hole. The other one can be found inside of the St. Herman’s Cave System. It’s all part of one of the world’s unique and fascinating ecosystems. 

Nature has truly blessed Belize. There are areas that haven’t changed in hundreds of years. Almost half of this tiny country has protected habitats for its flora, birds, fish, reptiles, and other animals. Left over from the great Mayan civilization, there is a system of caves to be explored. These were once used for Mayan ceremonial rituals. There are many ancient Mayan ruins left, and a tour visiting them is highly recommended.

For nature at its most thrilling, there’s no place like a Belize honeymoon.

About Belize

Belize, such a tiny country, has a complex mix of heritages and cultures, far more than most other, larger countries. In all, seven separate cultures have settled into the country and have made their presence felt.

  1. Chinese and Japanese have had a huge influence, especially when it comes to the local food. 
  2. Louisiana does not hold a monopoly on anything Creole. There is a large Creole community in Belize. Most members are descendants of slaves who have intermarried. Don’t miss the ultimate Creole culinary masterpiece – the perfect beans and rice. 
  3. The East Indians came here as entrepreneurs and are among the country’s first and original homeowners.
  4. The Garifunas are the descendants of the original Caribbean people. Try not to miss one of their colorful festivals or holidays.
  5. When you’re in Belize, you are in Maya country, and its descendants still live here. This once great civilization has left us a treasure of ancient history and ruins. 
  6. You may not expect a Mennonite community here, but there is one. They lead their lives separately, but their farms contribute to the overall food culture of Belize.
  7. The Mayans were here first, then came the Spaniards. When the two cultures intermarried, the Mestizos, a separate third culture, was created. The Mestizos have had a large influence on Belize’s culinary world. While on the subject of culinary, there are no McDonalds or Burger Kings to be found on Belize. 

Belize City can act as the de facto capital of Belize. It is the country’s primary port, and it is likely that visitors will end up here at least once. Its colonial buildings and hectic shopping areas make Belize City the launching point to Mayan digs and Cayo’s caves. While in Belize City, visit the oldest Anglican church in Central America.

The Cayo district is a natural wonderland of forests, rivers, caves, mountains, waterfalls, and Mayan history. It is Belize’s major tourist attraction and includes more than 1 million acres. San Ignacio and Santa Elena are popular places from which to launch your Mayan explorations.

Xunantunich is the largest Mayan temple, and it is located by the Guatemalan border in the Cayo district, two hours from Belize City. Visitors will arrive at the site via a ferry across the Mopan River. The climb to the top can be challenging, but you do get to enjoy the perfect vista. Following Xunantunich, visit one of Belize’s famed caves by the Caves Branch River. Tube down the river and through the caves and a few underground tunnels. 

The Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve and its beautiful waterfalls is made for hiking, bird watching, and swimming. Located in the Reserve are the amazing Rio on Pools, natural swimming pools created by the waterfalls. The surroundings are perfect for a romantic picnic. It’s like a desert oasis, only you are surrounded by water instead of sand.

There is much to do and see on your Belize honeymoon.

Best Time to Visit Belize

Belize’s temperatures remain warm and tropical all year round. Its dry and best season is from November through April. It can get crowded, but visitors eager for blue skies, bluer waters, and comfortable temperatures flock here to see Belize at its best. The waters are calm and inviting for scuba diving and swimming. When tourists flock to Belize for the holidays in December and January, the cost of a stay will be the highest. If cost is a factor, wait until the winter crowd has left, but the April humidity has not yet begun. That’s when visitors can revel in the best bargains.

The spring months of April and May invoke hotter and humid Caribbean tropical heat, while the summer months through the end of October can see plenty of rain and wind. The winds can be very strong, bringing hurricane gusts to the coasts.

To take part in local celebrations, visit September 21st and celebrate Belize Independence Day. If you don’t mind the heat, the Holiday Boat Parade in San Petro is an annual event taking place in June. If you are into crustaceans (no judgment here), all of Belize bursts with its annual Lobsterfest during the same month. At this time, lobsters can be had for a mere song, so this may be your best opportunity at gorging on plenty of lobster.

Top Things to do in Belize

Mayan Ruins

Belize was the heart of the Mayan empire. It was mighty and fierce, and there are now thousands of temples remaining in remembrance of that brilliant era. We have already mentioned the huge Temple at Xunantunich. The following are equally fascinating and worth a tour:

Caracol

Deep in the rainforest by the Maya Mountains, you will find one of the most powerful cities of the Empire, Caracol. It is larger than Belize City and was the center of Mayan life. The entire city, with its temples and pyramids, is now overgrown by the rainforest. You can still climb the buildings and explore, preferably with a knowledgeable guide.

Lubaantun

Located near the village of San Pedro in the south, Lubaantun was a trading hub. The soil allowed the residents to grow and trade in important crops, such as cacao, which were exchanged for jewels and other valuables. There are five plazas left, along with 14 large structures. What makes these buildings fascinating is that they were not erected with standard mortar. They were put together with precise pieces of stone like a giant puzzle.

Cacao Farm 

Ketaka Tours in San Ignacio provides a three-hour tour of a genuine Mayan cacao farm. The above reference of cacao being traded for jewels is not hyperbole. In ancient times, the cacao bean was worth more than gold. Another Central American, the Aztec King Montezuma, was known to drink more than 50 cups each day. This tour takes guests through the entire chocolate-making process, from growing the beans to preparing chocolate delights. Taste all kinds of chocolate marvels before you leave.

Ambergris Caye

The hundreds of islands that comprise Belize are called cayes. The largest and best caye is the Ambergris Caye. The beach here is perfection, and the shopping is plentiful. The best way to visit Ambergris Caye is to stroll and mingle with the natives.

Everyone, from incoming fishermen to locals, has breakfast at Estel, located on the beach. It’s a must.

The snorkeling here is great, and you’ll have turtles and plenty of fish to keep you company.

Float in an inner tube at Palapa Bar, the Belize version of a Tiki bar. 

Cockscomb Jaguar Reserve

Lions and tigers … and jaguars. There are approximately 50 jaguars roaming the world’s only jaguar reserve. The Cockscomb Wildlife Sanctuary is near the village of Hopkins and is a favorite hiking destination. The jaguars roam free, but they are shy. No guarantees you will see one. They sometimes come out in the evening, so a guided tour with a ranger holds possibilities. But there is plenty of other wildlife. There are several jungle trails and even several refreshing waterfalls.

Camping in the Sanctuary is possible as there are campsites available. Otherwise, the nearest accommodations are in the village of Hopkins. If you need to arrange a tour or rent a car, you can do so in Hopkins.

Weather in Belize

Less than half a million people live in Belize, and the country is the size of New Jersey, and it has a diverse terrain – from 240 miles of coast to jungle to mountains. Still, the temperature throughout the country is fairly constant, a lovely 80 degrees in the summer and a comfortable 70 degrees during the winter months. Daylight and darkness are divided equally into 12-hour periods. 

The coastal area usually enjoys a cooling breeze which does not make its way inland.

The one notable distinction about the Belize weather are its dry winter seasons and rainy summers. The rain, however, rarely lasts all day and is generally followed by the sun.

A Belize honeymoon is one full of mild and comfortable weather.
