It’s no secret that Belize is becoming a top honeymoon destination, having been the recent choice of Reese Witherspoon and as one of the BBC’s picks for Prince William and Kate’s post wedding getaway.
Not so well known is Belize’s reputation as an ideal summertime destination. And with affordable, all inclusive honeymoon deals such as Chaa Creek’s Maya and La Mar Honeymoon Magic package, a couple doesn’t need to be royalty or on Hollywood’s A list to celebrate their love in tropical luxury.
Sweeter still, an exotic romantic getaway is now even more attractive this summer with Chaa Creek’s recent offer of a 10 per cent discount off honeymoon and selected packages.
“People don’t often think of heading south for the summer, but it’s actually one of the best times to be in Belize,” Chaa Creek’s wedding and honeymoon coordinator Denise Duran said. “The average temperature in Belize is around 81°F (27°C) for the coast and 69°F (21°C) inland, but Caribbean Sea breezes and the cooling effect of Belize’s vast rainforests make it seem even fresher. In fact, our summers are often more comfortable than those up North.
“It’s also quieter and more laid back over the summer, which makes it perfect for visiting our many Maya temples and archaeological sites or Caribbean beaches. I think Belize is perfect all year round, but it’s just a bit more intimate in the summer,” she said.
Chaa Creek’s Maya and La Mar Honeymoon Magic is an all-inclusive package offering couples the best of two romantic worlds. The Lodge at Chaa Creek is Belize’s oldest and best known eco-resort, set within a private 365 acre nature reserve with beautiful thatched-roof cottage style accommodation, exquisite candlelit dining, a pool, butterfly farm, a professional Hilltop Spa and other amenities. Miles of well-maintained trails through the rainforest are perfect for horseback and mountain bike riding or tranquil nature walks. Couples can enjoy romantic canoe trips down the meandering Macal River or just relax together in their private Jacuzzis or sundecks.
Chabil Mar, Chaa Creek’s partner in the Maya and La Mar package, provides a complete Caribbean holiday with beautiful beachfront villas on a lovely private beach perfect for swimming, snorkelling or just floating in crystal clear Caribbean waters protected by stunning Belize Barrier Reef, the second largest in the world . Guests can explore the sandy peninsula in their own golf carts or visit Placencia village for a taste of Caribbean lifestyle and night-time dancing with their feet in the sand.
“We wanted to create a rich, completely hassle free honeymoon holiday that allows couples to concentrate on the real reason for their honeymoon – each other. All transfers, exquisite meals, complimentary flowers, champagne and wine, massages, and a great selection of activities and tours are all included. Our goal was to create something special and affordable without sacrificing luxury, and now, with 10% off everything this summer, I’m happy that we succeeded,” Ms Duran said.
