After months of planning and saving up for your much-needed time off with your better half, Belize looms in the horizon as the perfect place to propose. What better way to ask your significant other to spend forever with you as the Caribbean Sea stretches forever behind your embracing silhouettes? (Hint: perfect photo op.)
Allow us to share the best spots that will make it hard to say no to your weighted question (not that they’d ever think of saying no!)
5 Places to Pop the Question:
- Xunantunich. With Belize being dubbed the Maya Heartland, it’s a no-brainer that the most magnificent Maya temple would do justice to your enamored gesture. Whisk them to the top of “El Castillo” and as the sun sets behind the temples*, sink to one knee and ask them to marry you.
- Sunset Cruise. Nothing screams romance like a private cruise, and when paired with a sunset it’s almost impossible to not take advantage of that ambience.
- Helicopter Ride. What’s Belize without its azure undulating water seen from above? It’s still pretty great, but sometimes a proposal after a euphoric ride in the clouds is the only way to go.
- In the Barrier Reef. Emphasis on “in.” While it may be a tad more difficult asking the question underwater in scuba gear, there are a myriad of creative ways to propose as the colorful marine life swim around you. We’ll all agree the excited bubbles that ensue translate to an “I do.”
- Waterfall. Belize is teeming with cascading waterfalls and any one of them are up for grabs when asking your beloved to spend their lives with you. Whether from under the gushing water itself or on a rock, let your love mimic the natural phenomena and spill out of you.
