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.
You’ve been a fantastically successful pop star, sold over 40 million records, have your own TV show and claimed to have romanced thousands of women, and now you’re finally going to ask the one woman you’ve really loved to be your first wife. Where do you pop the Big Question? Why, Belize, of course. Gene Simmons could have picked any spot on the planet to ask Shannon Tweed, his long-time girlfriend and mother of his two children to finally tie the knot.
There’s something about summer in Belize that fosters feelings of romance and togetherness. Maybe it’s the lush greenery after the winter dry season, or the effect of the cool Caribbean Sea breezes, the amazing summer sunsets, or the slower pace of the summertime months. Whatever the reason, amor is in the air, and here at Chaa Creek we’re declaring a Summer of Love.
Over the last two months BBC Travel with Lonely Planet placed Belize (along with the Seychelles Islands) at the top of “The five best getaways for a royal honeymoon” for Prince William and Kate, USA Today reported that Belize is “coming on strong” as a top international honeymoon spot, and this week we noticed another happy couple arriving here to celebrate their honeymoon.
