The tropical paradise of Belize is a haven for honeymooners. It has everything your heart desires from grand adventure to secluded natural getaways. While many know of the Blue Hole and Amergris Caye, here are five intriguing, relaxing and romantic tours that are perfect for lovers.
Tour Monkey River
Why not experience the wonder of nature with your sweetheart? The quiet village of Monkey River is known for its howler monkeys, but the surrounding rainforest also abounds in beautiful tropical birds, butterflies and manatees. Take a tour and marvel together as you see ocelots and tapirs, agoutis and deer, and possibly even a jaguar or a dolphin. The local flora is also stunning.
Swim at Maya King Waterfalls
Enjoy the soothing sound of falling water while you relax at the Maya King Waterfalls. One of the most photographed locations in Belize, it actually has two cascading falls and is only a short ride from Placencia. To get there, you will travel past orange groves and under a lush canopy known as the “Bamboo Cathedral”. This is the perfect spot for a leisurely picnic and a swim.
Make chocolate the way the Mayas did
Chocolate was an important part of Mayan culture. Long before Europeans learned of it, the natives of Belize drank it in their sacred ceremonies. In southern towns such as Toledo, you can delve into the fascinating history of chocolate, learn how to make it the way the ancient Maya did, and even experience chocolate spa treatments.
Explore Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary
Located in south-central Belize is the world’s premier jaguar sanctuary. This beautiful preserve also protects many other types of fauna and flora. Its unique watersheds and lush rainforest attract both tourists and scientists, and easy hiking trails make it eminently explorable.
Relax on the white sandy beaches around Placencia
Belize has a magnificent Caribbean coastline and miles of gold and white sand beaches. The ones around Placencia are among the best for lovers. Dubbed “barefoot perfect”, the fine white sand on the quiet Seine Bight and Maya beaches are lovely for private moments, while Placencia Village’s golden sand strip is lined with bars and restaurants, making it a perfect spot for those who want to enjoy some nightlife.
