A 2020 Belize Couples Vacation Can Be a Relationship Saver!
The world spins at a dizzying pace these days, and fragile relationships can be torn apart. What helps keep couples together? Romance and humor–and there is no better place to enjoy both than Belize!
It’s hard to feel sorry for Queen Elizabeth. After all, Belize has recognized her by naming a national dish in her honor (The Queen’s Rat, found on menus throughout the country), but if you’ve been reading the latest news, you know that not only are royal couples splitting up at a record rate, but Meghan and Harry moved to Canada.
Why has staying in love become such a difficult job for both royalty and us commoners?
According to the University of California Berkeley psychology professor Dacher Keltner, strong relationships remain that way not because couples communicate well or respect each other–nor do sex or money play a part.
Relationships are fractured, says Keltner, when couples don’t share enough laughs. Don’t laugh! Researchers have gathered enough data to prove that “it is the dearth of laughter that leads individuals to part ways,” Keltner adds.
Easier said than done? Not if you create opportunities to be playful, de-stress and laugh frequently, says couples counselor Julienne Derichs. She has helped mend fractured relationships often enough to prove this theory and you should, too.
A place to laugh; a place to love
You can’t laugh and love if you don’t get away from the stressors that plague your relationship and the very best way to do just that is by taking a short trip to a gorgeous place that’s known for renewing relationships: Belize Boutique Resort and Spa. This small, lush destination is the acknowledged epicenter of luxury and privacy, hidden away in a Mayan rainforest and so close to Belize’s international airport, you can start enjoying your escape immediately.
What can this jungle enclave offer you that you don’t have at home? Intimacy. Peace. Alone time. Opportunities to rediscover your sense of humor, too.
Just 20 guest suites exist on this 1,000-acre property so having time alone at the Belize Resort and Spa is a given. Explore each other in your private digs, indulge in services offered by staff at the award-winning, on-premises spa and dine on elegant dishes designed by chefs known for their culinary skills and creativity.
Add tours to your itinerary just for fun
Belize Boutique Resort and Spa’s intriguing tour menu choices could lure you away from your snug haven. Discover caves and villages that were once home to ancient Mayas. Learn about the nation’s rich cultural mix on day trips to villages and historic sites. Dive and snorkel Belize’s world-famous Barrier Reef.
Return to your sanctuary at the end of the day to the splendor of tropical hardwood ceilings, mosaic tile floors, furnishings covered in exotic fabrics collected from around the world where you can relax and share the day’s memories. Tucked into your gorgeous paradise, your relationship will bloom anew and by the time you get home, you will have collected precious memories and shared plenty of laughs, too.
