San Ignacio Resort

7. San Ignacio Resort ( resembles a palace, so it stands to reason you’ll be treated like royalty.

It comes from the Coppola vineyard, of course.

Cahal Pech Village Resort

Located near the town of San Ignacio, this resort’s contemporary objective is to treat honeymooners like the Mayan royalty who lived here thousands of years ago. Snorkeling, fishing, jungle walks and more are conveniently located if you need a break from the ruins.

Thatch Caye

11. Thatch Caye’s ( biggest draw is over-the-water bungalows with private decks that give guests a perpetual 180-degree view of Mother Nature’s glory. Private? Mais oui!

Check out all-inclusive packages if you are sick of making wedding-related decisions!

Portofino Beach Resort

Las Terrazas Resort

13. Las Terrazas Resort. Make Ambergris Caye your honeymoon headquarters by booking at La Terrazas.

This resort even includes a sunset sail for two within its honeymoon package perks.

Laru Beya Resort

14. Laru Beya’s Garifuna translation is “on the beach,” which may be exactly how you two wish to spend your entire honeymoon since there’s a hammock on every balcony and love is in the air. Laru Beya ( is located on the Placencia Peninsula, so if you crave nightlife, it’s just a short walk away. Don’t forget to book the rooftop Jacuzzi on a starry night if you stay here!

Grand Caribe

15. The Grand Caribe ( is truly grand—the resort is huge, yet accommodations for newlyweds—like the “bedroom on the beach”—set an intimate mood. Indulge in a honeymoon basket of chocolate, fruit, crackers and cheese while sipping celebratory wine upon your arrival. By day, go catamaran sailing and snorkeling, but your favorite memory will likely be candlelight dining on your first full day as a married couple.
