10 Sexy Things To Do On Your Belize Honeymoon
Last year in December, Belize got ranked among Google’s most searched honeymoon spot in the world and we believe that it was due to Belize’s immaculate beauty and natural attractions like the great Belize Barrier Reef, the second largest Barrier Reef in the world, which is incredible for scuba diving and snorkeling; Belize’s intact and unspoiled rain forests, which are ideal for hiking, mountain biking, zip lining and horseback riding; Belize’s world class romantic resorts and hotels like Chabil Mar, the guest exclusive resort in Placencia, that offers an assortment of all inclusive romantic vacations; Belize’s abundant and diverse flora and fauna, and, Belize’s eclectic and colorful cultures like the Garifuna and Mestizo.
However we believe that being the only English Speaking Country in Central America was also an important factor for honeymooners in selecting Belize as a honeymoon destination. Belize has several destinations like San Ignacio, Caye Caulker, Ambergris Caye and Placencia that are perfect to spend a honeymoon, but one of the preferred destinations is Placencia, an idyllic Peninsula in Southern Belize which has been continuously rated as one of the best beach destinations in the Caribbean. Crystal clear water, white sand beaches, tropical breezes, swaying palm trees, balmy weather, an incredibly laid back atmosphere, are just some of the reasons why honeymooners honeymoon in this beautiful Belizean Peninsula.
Here are 10 romantic things to do in Placencia:
Visit the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary Located in the Stann Creek District, and near Placencia Village, is the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, a globally recognized jaguar preserve which is an ideal destination for honeymooners who want to be close to nature. Cascading waterfalls, panoramic mountain views, nature trails, furry mammals, colorful insects, scaly reptiles and a variety of neotropical birds are just a few of the many wonderful things that inhabit this spectacular reserve. Although the jaguar, the largest spotted cat in the world, is what the reserve is famous for, you are unlikely to see one as the cat is nocturnal. However you will see its tracks along with tracks of tapir, deer, and other wildlife that inhabit the nature reserve. Cockscomb Basin is also home to one of Belize’s highest points — Victoria Peak.
River Tubing Honeymooners can also add a river tubing tour to their full day adventure when they visit Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary. As you float downstream, the charming scenery will definitely mesmerize your eyes and relax your mind and soul. Previous travelers had this to say: The Cockscomb Basin is indeed one of the thousands of Belizean treasures. Well preserved and pristine, it is well worth the travel to get there. The trails are well kept, the river tubing is spectacular, the birds and wildlife are abundant, as is the flora and fauna. Beautiful part of Belize, to say the least. A good example of the importance of protecting the environment of Belize. Trails range from beginners to difficult, so there is something for everyone!
Go on a Romantic Kayaking Expedition at Laughing Bird Caye Kayaking in Placencia is a joy! The crystal clear waters, tepid sunshine and balmy Caribbean breezes that Belize offers make for an ideal kayaking expedition with your loved one. As you glide across the warm waters, you will observe untouched coral reefs, white sandy beaches and abundant marine wildlife like the amazing sea turtles. Belize has numerous cayes that can be explored on a kayak. Laughing Bird Caye National Park which is located about an hour away from Chabil Mar is a favorite stopover mini atoll for honeymooners.
Pay a Visit to the Resident Howler Monkeys Take a boat to Monkey River Village and head up Monkey River and into the jungle to pay a visit to the resident howler monkeys. Complete your honeymoon adventure along the ride to observe crocodiles sunning along the river banks, along with exotic birds, iguana hanging in the trees, a few bats and lizards and enjoy a delicious lunch with the villagers in Monkey River. On the way back to Placencia you may even see a few manatees along with their pups.
