The growth of romantic vacations as a uniquely Belizean attraction has been highlighted again this week with the airing of The Bachelor reality TV show, and this is a welcome trend for Adventure Romance specialists such as Chaa Creek, the eco resort’s spa manager Bryony Fleming said. The 7th episode of the 16th season of The Bachelor began with Bachelor Ben Flanjik and six female contestants arriving in Belize for a holiday that ended with only four women remaining. The Belizean series included Ben and his dates leaping from a helicopter into the famous Blue Hole.
Following the laidback honeymoon of Reese Witherspoon and the dramatic, high rating televised proposal by Gene Simmons to Shannon Tweed, we now have much of the world’s attention fixed on Bachelorette star DeAnna Pappas and Steve Stagliano’s honeymoon as it plays out on twitter to a legion of happy fans.
Chaa Creek Maya weddings can be held at one of several beautiful Maya temple or ceremonial sites, each having its own distinct feel and providing incredible backdrops for photographs and videos. Xunantunich, known locally as the Temple of the Stone Maiden, is a beautiful pyramid temple with rare frescos in a park like setting surrounded by lush rainforest and offering stunning views from the summit. Cahal Pech, on the outskirts of San Ignacio town features a royal palace and tranquil grounds with a variety of structures and settings.
