We are in the early stages of booking our honeymoon and are looking into Belize. I am looking for any recommendations! We would love to stay in the jungle and then on the beach so we get some adventure and a lot of relaxing. Other things we would like (not required): all inclusive, suite accomodations, honeymoon package, under $4,000, and/or able to use hotel points. Thanks!

Darling Husband and I were looking at Belize to do a vow renewal vacation. There are not a lot of all inclusives there.
These are places that we have checked out online.
Good Luck! I’ve heard Belize is amazing but it is really remote.

Belize is amazing- I visited once a couple of years ago and stayed at a resort called X’Tan Ha. If you check it out and decide you want to know more, feel free to message me! But this place has everything and it’s an adventure just getting there which makes it all the more fun 🙂 Good luck!

My husband and I went to belize for 2 weeks last year, we stayed at the Paradise Villas in San Pedro, it’s a beautiful little town where you can walk to literally everything. Most of the units are right on the beach, and at Paradise Villas there’s even a private pier right out the courtyard where you can relax and dangle your feet in the water, or meet the boats in the morning to go out on adventures (everything from jungle tours, trips to Belize City, scuba and snorkeling, and many more options) It’s not a true “all inclusive” place, but you have the option to build your own package, based on what you’re intested in doing.
If you want more details, feel free to PM me, and I can answer any questions you might have.

did you decide on another place instead? I’d love to hear about it!
Right now we are looking into Belize and Costa Rica. Both seem similar escript Belize has the Mayan ruins and Costa Rica is more developed. I’m torn between the two. I love that Belize seems more remote and I would love to visit the ruins. But Costa Rica is more accessible and more resorts to choose from (also seems more affordable). Decisions, decisions!

Belize is a fantastic Honeymoon choice! They best way to do Belize is to do the San Ignacio area for a few days, be active, and then fly over to Ambergris Caye and relax on the beach for the rest of your Honeymoon! While in San Ignacio you can go cave tubing, see the ruins (Tikal ruins are the best and just over the boder in Guatemala), or even go ziplining. Some great resorts in this area are Ka’ana Boutique Resort and Spa as well as the Lodge at Chaa Creek! While these resorts do not offer all-inclusive–you can add meals at Ka’ana. Once you complete the active part of your stay-take the short flight to Ambergis Caye from Belize City and stay at one of their great beachfront resorts (I like Victoria House or Ramon’s Village). Here you can relax on the beach or you can still be active by going snorkeling, scuba diving in the blue hole, snuba or even snorkel at Shark Ray alley. You will not find many-if any “all-inclusives” in belize but you will get an unforgettable Honeymoon! That being said, you will probably need more than 4k to do it right!

I love Belize. We stayed on the river in Burrell Boom at the Black Orchid. It was a fantastic getaway. We spent about a week there and about a week in AC. The hotel in AC was not so great, so I won’t even mention it. Seriously though, our trip to Belize is still our favorite trip ever. Have a beautiful time.

We booked a honeymoon package at Belizean Dreams in Hopkins. It was a little more than your budget but is all inclusive for food, drinks, and awesome excursions. Our trip is only a month away but I will try to remember to update you when we return 🙂

Hatchet Caye island is a fantastic honeymoon spot and it’s all inclusive.

I went to Belize on a Mission Trip, but we did travel to both the inland and the caye. In San Ignacio/Cayo we stayed at:
I’m not sure about price… maybe $800 for a week? Probably less. Chena makes the BEST food. The rooms are better than I expected, definitely a place to unplug. It’s close to the ruins!
We spent 5 days in Cayo and then went to Caye Caulker. We stayed at Island Magic in Caye Caulker- right on the water, amazing pool/private deck. It’s a very easily navigated island as it’s pretty small. I’ve heard great things about San Pedro as well. There are a ton of things to do in the Cayes. I think I did a half day snorkeling trip for about $30 USD.
I’m hoping to go back in March, it’s definitely a beautiful country!

I have been looking at honeymoon resorts too and Belize looks amazing! My only hesitance with the all-inclusive package is that it doesn’t include alcoholic drinks or it will include local rum and beer only. I don’t mind having to pay for drinks but I don’t want to have to bring a credit card out with me all the time and pay credit card fees for being international.

Drinks are dirt cheap in Belize… and if you take the glass bottles back you get a little money back.
What we tend do is a currency exchange before we leave on trips. We decide on an amount and our credit union converts it for us. It does take a few days. That way we have little bit of their money on us and don’t have to use our cards. Their dollar is close in value to ours and they take the US dollar too, so just take a couple hundred bucks in cash and lock it in your hotel safe. When you go out for the day take a few bucks with you.
There are also very good credit cards out there that do not charge those fees.

Not sure if there are resorts or honeymoon packages there but Caye Caulker is a gorgeous island in belize just a short boat ride from belize city! One of my favourite islands, no cars people use golf carts, you can walk everywhere in bare feet because the ‘roads’ are sand, and the snorkeling and diving trips are all fantastic!
Was just at Belizean dreams a few weeks ago (just for lunch though, as we are on a budget holiday so stayed at the backpackers), its a bautiful spot have fun! Hopkins is super tiny but has a great carribean feel and all the locals are really really friendly!
