With an azure Caribbean coastline of beautiful beaches and a verdant tropical rainforest inland, a honeymoon in Belize is a little slice of chilled-out paradise.

Although the Belizean locals speak a creole patois, Belize’s official language is English, which makes it a straightforward choice for native-speaking couples. The jump-off point is Belize City, with most couples heading straight to Ambergris Caye. The biggest draw is the Belize Barrier reef, the world’s second-largest barrier reef (after Australia’s Great Barrier Reef), one of the best places to dive and snorkel in the world. Explore Sharkray Valley, the Blue Hole and Hol Chan. Neighbouring Caye Caulker, where the motto of the island is ‘go slow’, is also a must.

Belize is a little more rustic than some of its neighbouring Central America and Caribbean countries, suitable for couples less interested in all-inclusive resorts of the region. While away the days swinging in a hammock at a cute lodge, zip-line through the jungle, visit an organic cacao farm or wander at the ancient Maya site Xunantunich. Belize is the perfect honeymoon destination with a difference.


The best time to visit Belize for a honeymoon is from late November to May, with the driest times being January to April. During the rainy season from June to October expect thunderstorms. Hurricanes are rare but can happen.


Is Belize good for a honeymoon? Yes, it’s perfect for a beach honeymoon with a difference.

How long do you need for a honeymoon in Belize? We recommend at least 7 nights.
