A wedding is one of the most important events of a person’s life and you can make it extra special by getting married on Ambergris Caye. Whether you want a casual beach wedding or a formal black-tie affair, Belize is an ideal option. Here you can get married standing under palm trees with pristine white sand under your feet and a stunning backdrop of azure Caribbean waters, have a ceremony amidst exotic tropical plants and wildlife or wed standing on worn Mayan paths trodden by royals and high priests centuries ago.

Ambergris Caye is the biggest and by far the most visited island in Belize. The best thing about the island is its close proximity to all the Belizean natural treasures. Regardless of what your dream wedding looks like, you can turn it into reality on Ambergris Caye.

Various Exotic Wedding Options

With miles and miles of sun baked white sand beaches, clear sparkling blue waters, palm trees swaying in the gentle breeze and sunny weather, Ambergris Caye is a picture perfect tropical paradise. So it is hardly surprising that a beach wedding is the most popular choice.

Belize has azure Caribbean waters on one hand and Central American jungles on the other. The tropical rainforest offers a great setting for an exotic wedding. There are a number of forest, hilltop and garden spots to choose from. You can also opt for a Mayan wedding. Cahal Pech and Xunantunich, ancient Mayan temple ceremony sites, are ideal for this purpose. The beach, the rain forest as well as the Mayan remains offer stunning photo opportunities. A wedding in Belize is sure to be a memorable event not only for the couple, but also for the guests.
