Travelling with your significant other to faraway places does not have happen only when a special occasion is coming up. This year, travelling with a passion is back in style. According to an article published by the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association, there’s three romantic movements that are garnering the attention of many lovebirds: “The Do-Good Honeymoon”, “The Green Honeymoon” and “The Foodiemoon”.


Here’s a rundown of each one of these top travel trends and how you can experience them with our Belize luxury hotel.


“The Do-Good Honeymoon”
Be good, do good. It’s all about engaging with the communities. Couples are now looking for experiences that empowers them to make meaningful changes by spreading the love with others through good deeds and noble causes. Some of these worthy initiatives include supporting local businesses, getting involved in charitable work, visiting a school, and even donating to organizations.

Get immersed in a Belize cultural tour with the Maya Women’s Cooperative in San Antonio Village. Ms. Josefina, the owner of the business, started this venture many years ago as a way of preserving and showcasing her culture. Here, you will learn about the predominance of corn in the Maya diet and get a little work out as you grind corn kernels and make your own tortilla. While your Maya-based lunch is cooking up on the old-fashioned stove, you will also have the opportunity to get crafty and learn how to do ceramic pottery that you can take home as a souvenir.

Another way great to support a local business is having a farm-to-the-table romantic dinner at one of San Ignacio’s top 10 restaurants, Running W Steakhouse & Restaurant. Our restaurant features grass-fed beef from the family’s cattle ranch and local produce from the San Ignacio Farmer’s Market. Nothing feels as pleasant as enjoying a delicious entrée knowing that every bite supports a local initiative.
