Just a 2-hour flight from Miami, Belize is becoming an increasingly popular place for newlyweds to take long walks on the beach, enjoy world-class diving or snorkeling, oh, and tour Mayan ruins.
This luxurious resort is a labor of love by famed director Francis Ford Coppola. If you're dreaming of staying in a private, thatched cottage, relaxing by the Caribbean Sea, being pampered at a romantic spa and dining at one of 3 acclaimed restaurants, this might be the romantic hideaway for you.
Coppola first fell in love with Belize at Blancaneaux Lodge where it was used as a private retreat for his family before opening to the public in 1993. Its remote location in the Maya Mountains allows guests to explore a Mayan citadel, ride horseback to Big Rock Falls and enjoy the utmost privacy -- there are only 20 rooms in the entire resort.
Owners Mick and Lucy Fleming have seamlessly blended Belize's natural beauty and resort comforts at their eco-friendly lodge. Honeymooning couples here can unwind in their private Jacuzzi surrounded by a tropical garden after canoeing down the Macal River.
True to its name, Kanatik Reef & Jungle Resort offers the perfect blend of beach vacation and jungle adventure for your honeymoon. And with only 25 private cabanas, expect romantic strolls on the beach and a truly relaxing experience.
More adventurous couples can start their married life discovering coral reefs and rainforest in Southern Belize. Honeymooners can choose from a romantic suite, private treehouse or beachfront room. The honeymoon package offers a couple's massage, fine dining and wide-ranging activities including snorkeling or diving, and jungle adventures.
Imagine relaxing in a handmade hammock on your verandah, enjoying a private sunset dinner and snorkeling among nurse sharks and stingrays? Sound like what you had in mind? Then you'll enjoy a pampering escape to the Matachica Resort and Spa.
A candlelit dinner on the beach and sunset sailing for 2 are just a few of the romantic perks at this new, luxurious resort situated on the island of Ambergris Caye. And can't you just see yourself sunbathing at that pool?
Also on Ambergris Caye, Victoria House offers the ultimate barefoot luxury just outside San Pedro. The award-winning property encompasses 42 suites, casitas and beachfront villas as well as 10 acres of white-sand beaches and tropical gardens.
Ka'ana says Belize is an adventurer's paradise, and with that they promise honeymooners the thrill of cave tubing, zip-lining, Jaguar tracking, Mayan immersion as well as understated luxury, craftsmanship and farm-to-table dining.
Among the many benefits of the Ultimate Honeymoon Package at this mainland resort are the unlimited champagne and unlimited diving and snorkeling on the nearby barrier reef, which are not to be mixed, of course.
