Belize, A Gorgeous Wedding Destination

On August 29, 2017, Elite Daily, an online publication published a list of 10 outrageously gorgeous destination wedding locations that included Belize. Billed as “the voice of Generation Y,” Elite Daily chose Belize for their article thanks to the number of exciting activities for newlyweds to enjoy as well as the gorgeous natural scenery that make for unforgettable photographs.

Once a remote country difficult to reach, Belize is now within reach of major cities across North America thanks to six of the largest airlines now offering non-stop flights to the Caribbean nation. Just 2-5 hours’ flying time from the United States, Belize is the least populated country in Central America, drawing in thousands of couples every year thanks to its unspoiled landscapes and exotic wildlife. About the same size as Massachusetts, Belize is home to just 360,000 people, many of whom still enjoy a traditional lifestyle in small villages.

Belize is a popular wedding destination thanks to its ease in getting married (the only main requirement is that the bride and groom must be in the country three days), the fact that it is the only country in the region where English is the official language (making it easy to find someone to officiate the ceremony), and its incredibly varied landscape. With hundreds of tropical offshore islands, Belize is also blessed with a lush mainland replete with pristine rainforests and majestic waterfalls.

Once the nuptials have taken place, Belize has everything newlyweds need to enjoy a fantastic honeymoon. The country is home to more ancient Maya ruins than anywhere else on the planet, and there are boundless adventures to be enjoyed on the mainland such as horseback riding through vast national parks, zip lining through the jungle canopy, and cave tubing (floating down subterranean rivers while aboard an inner tube). And the offshore islands are a world-famous mecca for scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, and sailing.

“We are honored to have been chosen by Elite Daily as one of their 10 outrageously gorgeous wedding locations,” said Larry France, marketing manager at Chabil Mar. “At our resort, we’ve helped make many couples’ dreams come true, working with them to ensure every detail is perfect on their special day.”
