In a word, yes! With lush natural landscapes, beautiful beaches, and lovely offshore islands, Belize seems custom made for romance. Add in the fact that everyone speaks English, the weather is always fabulous, and there’s so much to do and see in the country, and it’s easy to understand why Belize is such a great honeymoon destination.
Below are a few reasons why you should honeymoon in Belize in 2018:
Belize Makes Travel Easy
All six of the largest airlines in North America now have non-stop flights to Belize from major cities across the United States and Canada. Getting to Belize takes just 2-5 hours.
And once you’ve landed, getting around is easy. The country is relatively small (about the same size as the American state of Vermont), and four national highways mean that no destination is ever more than three hours away. All the road signs are in English, and Belize’s well-established tourist industry make getting around comfortable and easy.
The Locals Are Friendly
Belize has a unique melting pot society formed from over half a dozen disparate groups, yet Belizeans are renowned worldwide for their warmth, friendliness, and genuine hospitality. It’s no advertising slogan either. People in Belize are nice, happy to help, and treat visitors exactly like family.
Belize Is a Safe Country to Visit
Of course, there’s no such thing as a place without crime, but tourists rarely are victims of the kind of problems that plague the rest of the region. The police will never shake you down for a bribe in Belize, and serious crimes against tourists are extremely rare.
And despite the fact that so many tourists visit every year, you won’t be hassled by aggressive taxi drivers, beggars, or street vendors in Belize.
Belize Is the Right Size
With just 360,000 people spread out across the country, everywhere you go in Belize feels like a small town. Don’t be surprised if the hotel clerk you meet one day is the brother of the guy who drove you in from the airport or that a beach resort operator is the cousin of someone you met at a national park in the rainforest.
Domestic flights are numerous, and you can fly to just about anywhere, including the offshore islands, in 30 minutes or less.
Belize Is Beautiful
Search online for a “tropical island paradise” or “pristine jungle,” and you’re likely to find pictures of Belize. Add in exotic wildlife, hundreds of fragrant flower species, and many different colorful birds, and it’s easy to see why Belize is often called “Nature’s Best-kept Secret.”
