So you've decided to get married on Ambergris Caye. No doubt you're envisioning a gorgeous sun, Caribbean winds, and a great party, but the most important thing you'll need to decide is where to have your wedding! If you have your heart set on getting married near the water, that is, of course, totally feasible. However, there are slightly more unusual options out there, too.

San Pedro

Ambergris Caye's town has numerous resorts and venues for rent. If you are looking at Ambergris Caye for cultural reasons in addition to the beautiful scenery, a wedding in San Pedro is what you're looking for, and you'll have the advantage of all kinds of activities at the disposal of you and your guests.

On the Beach

Perhaps the most popular selection, and with excellent reason. The quintessential sunset wedding on the beach is highly attainable if you want to get married at the Exotic Caye Beach Resort on Ambergris Caye: you can easily find a location on the island's west coast. North of San Pedro, there are many resorts and beaches far enough away from the town to provide options in terms of privacy; to the south there are resorts that have the advantage of proximity to the town.


The Caye's Mayan ruins are a unique choice; they provide a stunning, sweeping backdrop to a ceremony, and a number of sites are easily accessible by boat or plane. Tours of the ruins make for an excellent gift to guests. As a final plus, the ruins make for absolutely breathtaking photography opportunities.

In the Jungle

There are numerous beautiful resorts to be found in Ambergris Caye's jungles, which, thanks to the Belizean commitment to the environment, are abundant with life. Whether you want something luxurious and elegant or something closer to nature, there's a resort that caters to you.

On a Boat

A wedding on a boat is a great choice for privacy and spectacular views of the ocean. Everything from sailboats to big catamarans can be rented for wedding purposes.

Private Villas and Islands

If you want the privacy and luxury of a villa or private island, rather than a ceremony at a a resort or public area, there are plenty available to rent as a higher-cost option.

Wherever you envision your dream wedding, remember that many resorts offer wedding packages, and that you can find wedding planners in Ambergris Caye itself.
