Belize is the only English-speaking country in Central America, just a two-hour flight from the U.S. and is perfect for a couple’s getaway, a destination wedding or for celebrating an anniversary.

Romance in Belize is easy. To help you with your ceremony in our tropical paradise, here are answers to frequent questions you might have about getting married at Portofino.

1. Will my marriage be valid and recognized anywhere I go?
Belize follows the traditional British Common Law, so your marriage will be legal anywhere in the world. As there are multiple faiths represented in the country, couples can exchange vows in a range of traditional religious wedding ceremonies, including Christian, Jewish, Maya, Garifuna and more.

2. Do you offer wedding and honeymoon packages?
Yes we do. Our Standard Wedding package includes the service of our wedding coordinator, a beautiful setup on our beach or dock, the ceremony done by a licensed person including the official license is at a cost of US$1470 which includes Governmental taxes. As well a tropical wedding bouquet and boutonnière are as well included the price.
When you are looking for a more personalized wedding package, our on-site wedding planner will be more than happy to help executing all levels of details before, during and after your ceremony.
Are you looking to hold your wedding away from our resort (perhaps on a picturesque Maya Temple)? Our wedding planner can help facilitate all logistics so you have a worry- free experience on your magical day.

For 11 years Portofino Beach Resort offers a fantastic honeymoon package. Click HERE for the details. As well our Honeymoon package can get customized according to any specific preferences you might have.

3. What is required to obtain a marriage license?
Legal Requirements are very simple if you are over 18 years old and we will be happy to help. To apply for a wedding license, you only have to be in the country three days prior to the wedding, and the license has to be applied for at least 24 hours in advance. Don’t forget that you need proof of citizenship (either a birth certificate that includes the father’s name or a valid passport). If it is not your first time, you will also need proof or divorce, if applicable, or a copy of your previous spouse’s death certificate if you are widowed.

Portofino Beach Resort in Belize simplifies the process, from ceremony to honeymoon.
