Belize is the ultimate honeymoon destination

Belize is once again listed as an ultimate honeymoon destination in the world. This time on The Huffington Post in an article entitled “The Ultimate Honeymoon Destinations” written by Ella Jameson, a travel journalist who writes for many different websites, blogs and magazines.

“It’s a given that couples want romance on their honeymoon, but what about adventure? Culture? Wildlife?” writes Jameson who highly recommends Belize because it gives couples who want to do more on their honeymoon than just kick back on the beach, swim in the sea, and enjoy romantic evenings in spectacular settings.

The writer advises honeymooners to explore the Belize barrier reef which is wonderful for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. And of course Belize’s number one attraction the “Great Blue Hole” comes highly recommended as an idyllic place to dive. “Sinking down into this haunting submerged abyss, gazing at bizarre, mesmerizing limestone formations and encountering all manner of marine life is something that you won’t forget,” says Jameson about the great blue hole.

“There’s plenty for couples to do on dry land too: adrenaline junkies can tube through ancient caves and zip line along the rainforest canopy, while those after a bit more culture can immerse themselves in the mystical Maya temples and multiple monuments at Xunanatunich” says Jameson about Belize’s inland adventures.

The writer also mentioned that last year Reese Witherspoon and her Hollywood agent husband Jim Tith honeymooned in western Belize which is considered ideal for couples keen to experience the rainforests, mountains and captivating culture of Belize.

Speaking about the article, Larry France, Marketing Manager of Chabil Mar in Placencia said that Chabil Mar, the guest exclusive resort in Placencia offers several jungle and sea vacation packages that features the best of Belize. “The Swim Suits & Hiking Boots and the Belize Rainforest and Reef Adventures are two of our popular all inclusive Belize vacations that I highly recommend for honeymooners,” says France.

The Moveable Feast Honeymoon Package which is an extraordinary honeymoon package that includes rainforest adventures, luxury accommodations and a potpourri of romantic experiences is another honeymoon package that honeymooners should consider” said Larry.

Kenya and the Mediterranean were the other two ultimate honeymoon destinations that Jameson recommended.

Exploring the Placencia Peninsula

Patrick recently stayed at Chabil Mar and he enjoyed it very much.

Here is a tip from him regarding Placencia:

To more fully immerse yourself in the real Belize, though, you’ll want to borrow one of the property’s several beach cruiser bicycles and ride into town. It only takes about five minutes, and for me, there was no better way to start the day.

Checking into Chabil Mar Where Luxury Meets Magic in Belize


USA Today: Find paradise at Belize’s top beaches

Yesterday USA Today published an article entitled “Find Your Paradise at Belize’s Top Beaches” which listed the top beach locations in Belize.

“USATODAY.COM is not only a top site in the US but also in the world” says Larry France, Marketing Manager of Chabil Mar, a guest exclusive resort in Placencia which got a mention in the article.

“Belize is unlike many other Caribbean destinations, where it’s easy to isolate the best beaches of a particular island. The mainland coast of Belize is a tangle of mangroves, which is about as far as a person can get from ideal beach conditions,” writes Mark Rogers, the author of the article.

“Not to worry, Belize has literally hundreds of cayes (pronounced keys, as in Key West). These offshore cayes, or islands, are where beaches of all sizes can be found, although almost all have to be accessed by boat. While the country has a handful of mainland beaches, these cayes are where beach lovers should be concentrating their search for the ultimate Belizean beach holiday,” Rogers asserts.

The author states that the Placencia Peninsula in southern Belize has the best mainland beaches in Belize and is a good jumping-off point to explore secluded beaches of the Silk Cayes and Laughing Bird Caye, two gorgeous gems not far away from Placencia Village.

Crystal clear water for prime snorkeling, a palm-fringed shoreline, high quality restaurants, and high-end properties like Chabil Mar can be found along the 18 mile Peninsula says Mark who didn’t forget to mention the amazing whale shark diving that travelers can do during the months of April and June in Placencia.

The beaches in Hopkins Village, Ambergris Caye, Caye Caulker, Half Moon Caye, Southwest Caye and South Water Caye were also highly praised in the article.

USA Today is a national American daily newspaper with a circulation of more than 1 million copies.
