From sea to land, Belize offers an incredible selection of romantic activities for you and your partner to experience. These ideas can stir your soul and change your life. Whether you are honeymooning in Belize or just looking for a much-needed romantic getaway, here are a few suggestions to ignite your passions with experiences authentic to this unspoiled country:
1. Waterfall Dining
With dense jungles, cascading waterfalls and mystifying caves galore, Belize’s natural environment will inspire you to get creative while enjoying your intimate and romantic activities. Within the country’s Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve, the majestic 90-foot Butterfly Falls provides the perfect backdrop to a romantic meal for two. Another charming spot is the Caves Branch System , where the two of you can journey into one of its many caves and explore Belize’s rich Maya history, and conclude the voyage by dining together within the cave’s storied walls.
2. Deserted Island Snorkeling
For a breathtaking Robin Crusoe-inspired adventure, you will find no better place than Snake Caye , located along Belize’s southern coast. While tours do visit the stunning island on a regular basis, you can arrange for a private stopover, complete with snorkeling among some of Belize’s most vibrant coral and marine life, and if you start to get a little hungry, a delicious no-nonsense barbeque can be arranged for the two of you right on the beach.
3. Couple Kayaking
It is no secret that fitness plays a role in increasing the body’s good-feeling endorphins and sometimes even inspiring romantic connections. Belize offers plenty of options for you and your loved one to get active together, and arguably one of the most intimate is kayaking. Named by Travel and Leisure in 2008 as one of the “Top 10 Emerging Beach Destinations,” Caye Caulker is one of the best spots for lovers to kayak. The island offers a kayaking tour that’s affectionately called, “round-da-caye” by locals, and serves as the perfect opportunity for the two of you to reconnect while having fun in the sun.
4. Island Star Gazing
Imagine a clear night sky without the mass pollution and the bright city lights found in the U.S., and you have Belize’s luminous atmosphere. While the best spots for star gazing in Belize are the three mid-ocean atolls , rural mountain getaways and remote beaches, all you will really need is a clear night and the one you love to enjoy Belize’s astronomical wonders.
5. Holding Hands Under the Sea
Nothing is more intimate than peacefully floating under the sea together and holding hands while taking in the magnificent underwater sights Belize is famous for. Described as “one of the four must-dive locations on this blue planet” by renowned oceanographer Jacques Cousteau, Belize is home to the largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere and the second largest in the world. PADI dive operators can be found throughout the country, and are perfect whether you are seasoned divers or have just always dreamed of trying.
