Belize is a place known for its sandy beaches, but you might be surprised to find that the country’s most romantic hidden secret is tucked away a little deeper inland. Because while islands like Ambergris Caye roll out the red carpet, they’re also inundated with tourists. Whether you’re celebrating your honeymoon or your 50th anniversary, the town of San Ignacio offers a wealth of romantic opportunities that are outside the ordinary.
For Couples Who Like to be Pampered
The romantic San Ignacio Resort Hotel has been around since 1976, and it’s a town institution at this point. In fact, you could spend an entire honeymoon among this 17-acre private resort and never feel like you’re missing out. The Running W Steakhouse offers fine global dining with a local twist, and the spacious elegant rooms are designed to make you feel as comfortable and welcome as you would at your own home. Journey down to the tennis court for a workout, take a taste of medicinal teas to get in the right frame of mind, or just sit back and enjoy the bird-watching on-site. The staff can even arrange for romantic, intimate dinners for you and that special someone.
For Couples Who Like to Adventure
San Ignacio Town is regarded as the gateway to the Cayo District — an area romanticized for its untamed and rugged landscapes. Consisting of dense rainforest, caves, and meandering rivers, there’s no lack of opportunities for adventurous couples. Get some alone time with a lazy canoeing expedition down the Macal River, or experience sunset deep in the Cayo District with couples horseback riding through the jungle. And for the mutual thrill junkies out there, you can have an opportunity to indulge in your adventure-seeking with either a cave rappelling or a jungle zip-lining expedition.
For Couples Who Like to Experience New Culture
Resort towns have a way of scrubbing away anything authentic for the sake of offering a no-friction experience for guests — but if you’re the type of couple who likes to embrace the locals during your vacation, San Ignacio Town is known for its unvarnished but friendly local culture. San Ignacio’s downtown is small but also quaintly charming, and the wealth of local restaurants help demonstrate how diverse the population really is. San Ignacio Resort Hotel is conveniently located a few minutes away from downtown, and the staff can help clue you in to all the hot local spots.
No matter what type of couple you are — or how long you’ve been together — San Ignacio Town has something romantic to offer you.
