Although Belize is just a small country located on the Caribbean coast of Central America just south of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, it is a wonderland of both lush jungle on the mainland and tropical paradise on its hundreds of offshore islands. Just a few hours' flying time from major cities across the United States, Belize is the ideal place to enjoy an unforgettably romantic vacation.
Imagine holding hands as you walk down the beach, watching the sun rise over the sparkling waters of the Caribbean. Imagine laughing with amazement as you sail along a series of zip lines high above the jungle. Imagine the wonder of exploring ancient Maya pyramids, some of which are still bigger than any modern man-made structure in the country, as they reach for a cloudless blue sky above.
Whether you're looking for a gorgeous, relaxing vacation or want to enjoy thrills and spills, Belize has the perfect blend of beauty and excitement. Enjoy a couples massage at a five-star luxury resort in the morning and then shriek with delight as you navigate a canoe down a pristine jungle river in the afternoon. Or wake up to locally-grown orange juice, coffee, and chocolate before heading out to the islands for a day of snorkeling and scuba diving.
It's no exaggeration to say that Belize has it all. The offshore islands are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Belize Barrier Reef, an enormous marine area divided into seven different national parks and nature reserves. Famous for its gorgeous corals that are home to schools of fish, darting manta rays, curious nurse sharks, majestic sea turtles, playful dolphins, and an astounding array of colorful aquatic life, many people compare the Belize Barrier Reef to a gigantic aquarium.
Yet the pristine bounty and exotic wildlife of the mainland of Belize can also be part of a wonderfully romantic vacation. Whether it's watching clouds of butterflies lift off from the pool at the base of a waterfall, seeing more than 50 bird species in a single morning, or watching in amazement as troops of monkeys play with their young, the nature in Belize is unabashedly romantic.
