Unlike Mexico and the Caribbean, hotel chains and adult-only resorts don’t tend to be the most popular for newlyweds visiting Belize. Instead, hotels with a balance of couples and families are first choice. Why? It’s simple, Belize primarily has boutique properties with 10-15 rooms so whether you’re staying on a private island or a treehouse hotel in the jungle, an intimate experience is guaranteed.

What do couples do on a Belize honeymoon?

For a Belize honeymoon, couples tend to like spending quality time together at a nice resort, indulging in spa treatments, going on exciting nature-based tours and adventures, meeting locals and exploring charming destinations, visiting various restaurants and bars, and having romantic dinners. These activities and more can be arranged by the hotel concierge at the resort you’re staying at.

What to avoid doing during a honeymoon?

Here are three basic pitfalls that couples should avoid during their honeymoon.

  1. Avoid too much trip planning since this can cause a lot of anxiety and frustration. Instead, book a honeymoon vacation package which includes accommodations, transportation, and activities. Also, take advantage of the on-site hotel concierge since it’s their job to help you have a wonderful trip.
  2. Avoid carrying expensive items on vacation since losing them can ruin your experience. E.g. Leave your wedding ring at home or keep it in the hotel room safe for the entire trip.
  3. Don’t include too many activities in your travel itinerary. It is recommended to have an off day between active days so that you can relax and enjoy quality time together. OH, and don’t bring work with you. lol E.g. Leave your work laptop at home.

That’s it for now. There are many other resorts that could be included in this list but I kept it short to offer more value. Also, note that honeymooners often tend to split their stays between the beach and the jungle.
