There’s no place like Belize for a honeymoon. Between the remote stretches of wilderness and the famed friendliness of the locals, it’s an ideal place to get away from it all and experience uninterrupted bliss with that special someone. And since English is the official language of the country, it’s far easier for honeymooners to navigate than many other Central American countries. And for the more adventurous couples, there are plenty of opportunities to get your feet wet. Literally. Here are some of the best opportunities Belize has to offer.
Exploring Actun Tunichil Muknal
Discovery Channel’s Number One Sacred Cave in the World is also a place of rich historical heritage, littered with relics of the ancient Maya Empire. Hundreds of these relics are buried in the complex tunnels, and visitors can only access the remote caverns by swimming across an adjoining pool.
Thousands of years ago, the ancient Maya in Mesoamerica used caves to conduct special ceremonies and sacrifices. Today, adventure honeymooners can explore these sacred sites by floating on inner tubes in jungle rivers that connect into it. Spot spectacular stalactites and stalagmites inside these caves and learn more from your professional guide on why the ancient Maya believed that caves were a portal into the underworld, which they called ‘Xibalba’.
Diving Into the Belize Barrier Reef
Belize is home to the second largest barrier reef in the world, and the abundant and colorful life that calls this region its home has to be seen to be believed. Whether you’re looking to plunge beneath the waves with scuba gear or enjoy a more leisurely snorkeling expedition, there are plenty of options available.
Hiking Cockscomb Wildlife Sanctuary
This wildlife sanctuary spans 400 square kilometers of practically untouched wilderness. It’s one of the most beautiful jungle destinations in the world, but it’s also one of the most unique. That’s because Cockscomb is the only jaguar sanctuary in the world and home to approximately 200 of these stunning predators.
Journeying to Monkey River Jungle
If you’re looking for a tour with wildlife a little less ferocious than jaguars, Monkey River Village has you covered. Named for its high concentration of black howler monkeys, this jungle can be explored via a lazy river cruise that can help you get up close and personal with the local flora and fauna.
Climb a Pyramid
Egypt isn’t the only home to majestic pyramids. The Maya city of Xunantunich is also known as the “Maiden of the Rock”, and its peak offers a stunning view of the surrounding environs. It’s also a short ride from the Blue Hole, a natural sinkhole that’s also the perfect place to enjoy an afternoon swim.
