-Get a couples massage
-Read a sexy book

Do all of this and more at Chabil Mar Villas

At Chabil Mar Villas, every item on that list is included at our luxurious honeymoon mecca, and we add another perk to that list: When honeymooners book our Honeymoon or Jungle and Sea Belize all-inclusive packages, they save money, making honeymooning even sweeter.

Perhaps the most exciting item on that list takes place outside the bedroom: Chabil Mar’s activity options. They can shape the tone, photos, and memories built on shared experiences during your honeymoon. Browse this menu to see what we mean.

10 opportunities to make memories

1. Sail the Belize Barrier Reef, a geological wonder that has fascinated visitors since Darwin’s visit in 1842. See how many of the 500 species of fish and invertebrates plus 100+ coral species you can find.

2. Visit a world that has long ago disappeared: the ruins of majestic Maya civilization. People roamed this land thousands of years ago, leaving remnants of their society that are chilling, beautiful and sacred.

3. Follow that couples massage advice as soon after your honeymoon begins as possible. This sensuous, relaxing, shared experience is the epitome of bliss. You may not be able to resist scheduling more than one during your stay.

4. If you’ve never had the pleasure of enjoying a private candlelight dinner staffed by discreet servers, you’re in for a treat. You only have eyes for each other, and you won’t be the first couple to ask for dessert-to-go.

5. Stroll around Placencia village to take in the crafts, meet the people, sample food delights and learn about this area’s history, folklore and mix of religions.

6. Schedule a Monkey River trip. Howler Monkeys congratulate honeymooners in their own language. Gibbons Monkeys mate for life, but Howlers haven’t shared their feelings about monogamy. Maybe you can find out!

7. Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary (CBWS) is the world’s first jaguar preserve, nestled amid waterfalls, mountains, trails, and exotic birds. Get your fill of Mother Nature while exploring this exotic jungle.

8. Get shot. Having a private photo shoot is the ideal way to explore your sexual side, so whether you do the job yourself or desire a professional, Chabil Mar staff can help since this resort is all about discretion.

9. Visit Laughing Bird Caye, if only to tell friends that you failed to meet any laughing birds during your honeymoon. This World Heritage Site is dominated by coconut palms. Sneak behind one if you two want to share a laugh or two.

10. Some honeymooners never leave their Chabil Mar digs. That could describe you. Sea-facing villas with verandas give couples plenty of room to explore each other’s dreams within their 950- to 2000-square foot hideaways.

You probably won’t need 2,000 feet—-unless you bring company, a prohibition included in the EverAfterGuide.net guide. We suggest reading the entire guide before packing. There’s a lingerie tip you won’t want to miss.

Belize relaxes health and safety protocols for travelers as more flights return to the country in October

Belize relaxes health and safety protocols

While Belize has been reliable at restricting the transmission of COVID-19, this vigilance has paid off with slowly peeling away layers of safety and restrictions on what visitors can do, let alone come into the country. The newest information is that major airlines have been able to fly out to the country since the Philip Goldson International reopened on October 1st.

Belize recently lowered its international travel restrictions, expanding the “Tourism Safe Corridor” and now allowing car rentals as a viable means of transportation, meaning visitors are free to rent a car from the airport. This expanded freedom comes with the stipulation that travelers submit their itinerary and accept GPS tracking. Furthermore, restaurants with adequate square footage can serve more than 10 persons so long as social distancing is obeyed. This ten-person limit extends to reservations. Lastly, visitors are now free to vacation within the Tourism Safe Corridor, rather than remain on the premises of their Gold Standard hotel, with the exceptions of tours and activities.

American Airlines began flying into Belize on October 1st. Anyone looking to enter the country through an American Airlines flight can do so between the days of Thursday and Monday. While a flight coming from Miami only takes around 2 hours and 10 minutes to arrive, the return trip is closer to 4 hours, allowing plenty of time to reflect on your Belize vacation experience.

United Airlines (UA) began flying to Belize a day later, on October 2nd. UA flies to Belize between Friday and Sunday. A flight out to Belize from Houston’s George Bush International is roughly 2 hours and 28 minutes but a flight back only takes around 3.5 hours.

Avianca Airlines will begin flying to Belize on October 28th and flies every day of the week but Tuesdays and Sundays. Flights between Belize and El Salvador International take only around 90 minutes, either way.

If your aviation loyalties lie elsewhere, Delta Airlines will begin flying to Belize in the third week of November, Southwest Airlines will return service between December and January. While Sun Country and COPA Airlines will be resuming service, there has been no announcement of when.

Everything You Need To Know About The Belize Health App

belize health app

COVID-19 has affected the world in a variety of ways. One way that Belize has managed to keep the pandemic in check is with its own health app. Anyone looking to come to this beautiful country is required to install and use this specific app before they will even be allowed to enter the country.

What Is This App?

The Belize Health App is the first line of defense against contamination from COVID-19 or any other major health hazards. If you are interested in flying into Belize, you must fill out all of your information no sooner than 72 hours prior to your flight. The required information includes taking a test for COVID-19 and having a “negative” result. This also allows you to use the express lane at the airport. It does not matter what country you come from or which nationality you claim, everyone coming to Belize is required to have the app. Fortunately, the app is available on both Google Play and the Apple store and can run on any Apple device that runs iOS 10.0 or higher.

Why Do I Need It?

The primary purpose of the app is to enable contact tracing. Every user receives a unique QR code that helps the Belize government keep tabs on the health of every incoming and outgoing visitor to the country. The most immediate benefit of the app is that prior evidence of taking a test and proving negative will expedite your time spent at the Philip Goldson International Airport. Because the app is used to track and monitor you, you must perform a daily check-in of your health and this will require you to be near the sort of internet access available to anyone foreign visitor staying at a gold star resort like Chabil Mar. All of the specifics regarding check-in details are covered by the app as you fill it in.

What If I Lack a Smartphone?

While the app is available on any Apple and Android device, Belize understands that not everyone is up to date with technology. In the event that you lack any relevant device, you will have to fill out digital forms through the Belize Department of Health.

One of the first steps foreign visitors must take is to book with a gold star hotel. If you are unsure where to stay, consider Chabil Mar. Chabil Mar offers premium accommodations and guest-exclusive amenities on the Placencia Peninsula. 

Visit our website chabilmarvillas.com for more information on Placencia Belize, and don’t hesitate to send us an email, or call US/CAN Toll Free: 1-866-417-2377, Local: (011-501) 523-3606, if you have questions or need help in planning your Belize vacation.

New Polyclinic To Be Built in Placencia Belize

A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the construction of a Polyclinic for Placencia Village has been signed by the Belize Tourism Board (BTB), the Ministry of Health (MOH), and the Placencia Village Council (PVC).

The 5,650 sq feet Polyclinic will include 4 consultation rooms, reception and registration areas, 2 waiting rooms, an asthma bay, pharmacy, 2 triage rooms, a laboratory, shock/trauma rooms, and more, in order to be able to provide the highest level of service to patients.

The Placencia Village Council will provide the land for the construction of the facility; the MOH will provide the technical requirements, staff, and management of the polyclinic; and the BTB will develop the terms of reference for the tendering procedure and manage the disbursement of funds with guidance from MOH.

The project is estimated to cost $1.6 million dollars and will be financed by the Tourism Development Funds established for the destination.

The organizations note that the funds resulted from mutual agreements and collaboration between the Government of Belize, Norweigan Cruise Lines (NCL), Protected Areas Conservation Trust (PACT), and BTB, with the aim to develop sustainable management of tourism sites, community, sanitation, health, and security infrastructure.

Placencia, located on the southern coast of Belize, is one of Belize’s leading tourism destinations.

Prior to the emergence of COVID-19, Placencia experienced rapid tourism growth, welcoming 66,738 overnight visitors and 374,894 cruise passengers via Harvest Caye in 2019. These visitor arrivals had a direct impact on the demand for health services, thereby influencing guests’ experience.

As a result, BTB launched an initiative to construct an appropriate medical facility for both residents and visitors; the facility is also a means of fortifying the sound development of tourism in the area, particularly with the ‘new norm’ of increased focus on high standards of health and safety.

 “The Placencia Village Council supports this development which will hugely benefit our villagers, especially in health,” said Chairlady, Ilsa Villanueva.

Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Manuel Heredia Jr, has also expressed his support of this project, stating, “The Placencia Polyclinic offers us the best of options because on one hand it will provide essential health services to Placencia residents during this critical juncture for the country, and on the other, it will contribute to the development of Placencia as a healthy, safe and visitor-friendly destination.”

Director of Tourism, Karen Bevans, signed on behalf of the BTB while Chief Executive Officer, Dr. George Gough, and Chairlady Ilsa Villanueva signed on behalf of MOH and the PVC respectively.

Belize Is a Great Choice for Your Post-Covid-19 Travel Plans

Why You Should Consider Belize For Post-Covid Travel

After months of staying home and social distancing, some people are already making travel plans. They want to be ready when travel restrictions are lifted, and it’s easy to see why. It’s hard to stay cooped up inside, and the world is waiting. Here’s why Belize is an ideal destination for your post-coronavirus travel plans.

Social Distancing Is Easy

As a small, sparsely populated country that doesn’t attract massive crowds, it’s easy to keep your distance in Belize. Even in the popular tourist areas like Placencia, you won’t find the crowds you find at typical Caribbean destinations. You can enjoy everything Belize has to offer while enjoying safe social distancing.

Belize Has Emerged as a Safe Country

Belize has been able to survive the pandemic with fewer than 20 documented cases of COVID-19. The government of Belize took quick action to contain those cases, restrict travel to Belize and impose stay-at-home orders. It’s easy to do all this in a small country, and it worked. 

Belize Is Close to Home

If you’re in the US, Canada or Mexico, Belize is a short flight away. You can be in Belize City in just two or three hours from most major airports. If you’re concerned about a long trip, stay close to home by visiting Belize.

Hotels and Resorts in Belize Have Developed Excellent Plans

Most hotels and resorts in Belize have had time to develop thorough plans for dealing with the coronavirus. As a guest, you can choose how much contact you want with hotel employees and other guests. Given the low rates of coronavirus, Belize is an excellent option for wary travelers. While many countries remain under travel advisories, Belize has been relaxing its travel restrictions.

Belize Is an Easy, Breezy Getaway

When you visit Belize, you don’t have to worry about crowds, noise or stress. Visiting Belize is a relaxed way to ease back into traveling. You’ll enjoy a laid-back vacation filled with fun activities, great weather and gorgeous natural scenery.
