I’ve been there but not extensively. Spent time on caye caulker and ambergris caye. Not a big fan of ambergris. I really liked they small, fully walkable caulker. Very backpacker vibe. If you want a place with more going on that caters to families and older couples, ambergris is better but then you have to deal with renting a vehicle or golf cart and the subsequent frenzy.

Stephanie Andrasek :  I was there 4 years ago. It’s not like pristine beautiful beaches that you would find in Aruba or Turks and Caicos. We had to do excursions to keep ourselves busy- it’s just kind of boring. The jungle especially. Make sure you take good bug spray!

A friend of mine went there for her honeymoon and had a BLAST! They weren’t super adventurous but enjoyed their time at their all-inclusive.

Just an FYI that if you are planning on TTC, they do have an active Zika outbreak there.

I spent 4-5 days in Belize last summer with some friends (so no romantic experience advice). We stayed in San Ignacio, where we visited ruins, hung out in the village, and went caving, then spent 2 days on Ambergris Caye, where we did the beach and snorkeling (with rays & sharks!).

I loved it, but you have to be up for activities. I don’t know what the resorts are like or what your style is, but it’s not really built for spending all day lying on the beach.

I had my honeymoon in Belize and loved it!  Like a PP I also stayed in San Ignacio (inland).  We only spent one day out by the ocean, and the rest of the week we did various day trips.  There are a lot of caves in Belize that I found to be super cool, but photos inside the caves didn’t come out–Plus the biggest one, the ATM caves, don’t allow cameras at all.  

And yes bring bug spray.

Our resort, Ka’Ana in San Ignacio.  Never had better customer service!  It’s such a small resort that they know all the guests by name.

Tour to the Mayan ruins Xunantunich:

There were howler and spider monkeys in the trees by the ruins:

Our day in San Ignacio the town, we went to this green iguana sanctuary attached to one of the hotels. 

Night tour at the Belize zoo.

Our ocean day – View from the seaplane we took from the mainland:

Caye Caulker, very small and you can walk the whole island.  There are little shops where you can book snorkeling and boat tours.
