We were planning a lovely honeymoon to Costa Rica, but have changed our mind suddenly because it’s rain season there in August. So we’ve been searching for other destinations and Belize looks amazing. Is anyone else going there? iPlease give details of where you are going, who you contracted the trip with, hotels, etc. if you can.

oooh not for our honeymoon – but i went a few years ago with an ex-roommate. we stayed at “xanadu” on the island of Ambergris Caye. Sorry I don’t remember too much – it WAS 4 years ago – but let me tell you it was GORGEOUS! we went snorkling at shark ray ally and one other place. unfortunately i didn’t get to do the jungle stuff (really regret it and am ticked at my roommate, but it’s a long story…) but it was realllly awesome I do remember!

We went to Belize last spring break. It’s fabulous. If you’re still trying to plan, we went to Tablerock Lodge for 3 days and Caye Caulker for 3 days (it’s less resort-y than Ambergris). Tablerock will organize trips for you anywhere, and it’s easy to sign up for snorkling and diving once you get to the Cayes.

We just booked a honeymoon in Belize at the Victoria House. They have little individual casitas. You can see more detail here.

FI and I went there last year in February and planned our own trip. Belize is really fun! Don’t expect fabulous beaches though, the beaches are so so, and in some parts the water is filthy with trash/cruise waste. The jungly parts of Belize were my favorite. Second Rachelss, Tablerock Lodge is a great, small family run place in the Cayo District. Have to strongly urge you to stay at Francis Ford Coppola’s Blacaneaux Lodge and/or Turtle Inn – amazing!! If we hadn’t just been there, we’d definitely go back for our honeymoon. Blacaneaux is also in the Cayo District way up in a pine mountain forest environment and close to an amazing Mayan ruin site called Carocal. Turtle Inn is in Placencia, really cute beach town on the coast in Southern Belize. Should be low season at that time = lower prices. If you go to Belize you must, must, must do the ATM cave tour. Never experienced anything like it in my life, and the locals say it will be closed to the public in the next few years. Have fun!

I went to Belize and HATED IT.
I don’t want to sound insensitive but it was like a terribly destitute, 3rd world country. Like dog fights, people urinating in the street, beggars on every single corner, filthy water and streets. We got off the ship, walked around for like an hour, I gave a homeless man a few dollars who was selling shells, and got back on the boat. It was horrible.

@Miss Leopard:in all fairness i think you saw it strictly from a cruise ship point of view. I think if you actually travelled around Belize you would have seen it’s beauty. Every place around the world is goign to have places that are not as nice as others and its hard to make a judgement on the entire country because of one area that you saw.
