As a perfect union of two distinct personalities, each wedding is naturally a uniquely special occasion — but there are a lot of things that most of us look for on that special day. Among the most appealing is the promise of spending your wedding and honeymoon in a place of perfect bliss. Paradise might not exist, but Belize offers the closest thing for many couples — and it stands out even among the crowded options throughout Central America and the Caribbean. Here’s why Belize should be on your shortlist.
A Destination Wedding Without the Stress Paradise is closer than you may think — barely two hours when you fly in from Fort Lauderdale. Belize itself is a small country known for its warm and friendly people, and the fact that English is the primary language helps avoid any language-based miscommunications that often happen when traveling to a foreign country. Fortunately, you won’t have to worry about handling detailed logistics. Tourism — and eco-tourism in particular — is a central engine in the country’s economy, and destination weddings and honeymoons are common here. The process of getting the legal paperwork you need is incredibly simple, and most resorts can even handle that for you. Add in the strength of the American dollar in Belize, and you’re left with a lot of leverage to have the perfect wedding and never have to plan a thing.
An Experience All Your Own The island of Ambergris Caye is the most popular — and unfortunately most crowded — destination in Belize, but it’s just scratching the surface of what this beautiful country has to offer. Fishing villages like Dangriga and Placencia dot the coast, and the landscape becomes more rugged and more beautiful as you journey west. This is a place filled with ancient Maya cities to explore and caves to dive, but it’s also a landscape built for romantic horseback rides through the jungle and romantic dinners. San Ignacio Town is arguably the best of both worlds — a bustling town with a real sense of culture that sits right at the entrance to the wild Cayo District without being too far from the shore.
The Wedding You’ve Dreamed Of We may each have our own individual vision of the perfect wedding, but the staff at the San Ignacio Hotel Resort has a vision of making your wedding or honeymoon as perfect as it can be. Located in San Ignacio Town, the hotel is a local institution that even hosted Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. You can count on being treated like royalty when you stay here, and that’s doubly true with our Belize romantic package. It offers everything you could hope for in a tropical honeymoon at a very reasonable rate.
