Romantic Belize | 7 Honeymoon Hotels in Belize

Located on the east coast of Central America, bordering Mexico and Guatemala, and with shorelines lovingly lapped by the warm, gentle waves of the Caribbean Sea, Belize is a world-class destination for romance.

Tropical sunshine, beautiful Caribbean beaches, cultural antiquity, intrepid adventure, breath-taking biodiversity and the second largest barrier reef in the world make Belize an extraordinarily unique destination, which despite being the only English speaking country in Central America is still largely undiscovered by European tourists – further still increasing its romantic desirability.

So if you are looking for a laid-back beach getaway, romantic honeymoon hideaway, an anniversary adventure or a tropical barefoot wedding – Belize is a destination that demands your attention!

What type of couples enjoy Belize?

Around half of Belize is covered with dense jungle and it is a major destination for ecotourism, making it a strong choice for couples with an interest in wildlife and nature, or those seeking a romantic rainforest retreat. However Belize’s biggest romantic USP is that it has something for everyone including luxury Caribbean beach resorts, cultural tours of the ancient Mayan ruins, diving adventures through the coral reefs and hundreds of tiny tropical off-shore islands (called Cayes): all of which can be experienced in a single trip - as and how you wish. The perfect romantic adventure!

When is the best time to visit Belize?

Starting in late November and running through to April, the dry season in Belize is the most popular time for most tourists to visit. Clear skies, lower humidity and warm sunshine make this a great time for both beach and rainforest stays. Alternatively, for couples travelling to Belize especially for the diving it is recommended to visit during the Summer months instead when the waters are calmer – and the rates are a little cheaper as well.

Including beach and rainforest locations our recommended romantic hotels and resorts in Belize offer exceptional romantic experiences and hospitality for couples.
