Getting married is a huge step in your life, so it's only natural that you'd want to make it special. Although many couples travel to global hotspots like Paris or Niagara Falls for their weddings, you'll find that weddings in Belize are a step above the rest.

Why Get Married on Ambergris Caye?

Ambergris Caye, off the East coast of Belize, is a natural region that has somehow survived thousands of years of human habitation without losing any of its original splendor. The island is ringed by clean white sands, and the beaches sit beneath clear skies with views of the Caribbean that stretch all the way out to the horizon. These scenic vistas make the perfect backdrops for photos and fun.

Another nice factor about the island is that it makes it easier to take your honeymoon without having to travel as far. Once you're here, you're only minutes away from mangrove forests and internationally recognized wetland preservation areas. Who knows? You might even get to share one of your cherished honeymoon snapshots with a puma or a jaguar.

Expand Your Horizons on Your Honeymoon

The other cool thing about Ambergris Caye is that there are amazing things to do out on the water. In addition to zip-lining and taking boat trips through the forests and swamps, you can also sail out to some of the best SCUBA diving spots in the world and see coral reefs that have been around for centuries. Cenote sinkholes that have filled with water are great places for diving if you or your new partner want to see the effects of thousands of years of change in a single afternoon. Of course, the local resorts also provide tons of great ways to enjoy yourselves, including exploring, taking in cultural festivals and enjoying oceanfront yoga.

Ambergris Caye's proximity to the mainland also means that in a few hours, you can get to some of the biggest Mayan temple complexes in the world. A Belizean wedding on Ambergris Caye cements your new commitment by making it official in the midst of one of the most culturally and ecologically diverse places on Earth.
