5 Most Romantic Things to Do in Belize



The Mayans believed that chocolate held intense, mystical powers and was associated with the great gods that ruled their culture. And who can blame them? I mean, it’s probably not far from the truth. Chocolate still holds the allure of decadence, romance, and for some serious chocolate lovers a bit of ecstasy. Belize is home to dozens of small cacao farms, where the fruit that is the source of all chocolate is still grown in the traditional organic Mayan way. The best and freshest of all chocolates can be found here at family businesses like Belize Chocolate Company and Ajaw Chocolate, where the chocolate is made by hand with craftsmanship that is still fit for the gods.


Is there any image more romantic than you and your favorite person frolicking in a fresh, clear waterfall? How about something a bit more thrilling? A bit more shocking? A bit more adventurous? Don’t just swim in that waterfall together–jump off it hand in hand. Western and southern Belize are peppered with waterfalls off all sizes and intensities. From tiny babbling falls spilling over limestone smoothed by the millennia to gushing behemoths barreling like a freight train into valleys one thousand feet below. And while we wouldn’t recommend taking the plunge off the latter, there are some stunning spots for just this thing throughout Belize. Make the leap at tons of gorgeous locations, like The Showers in Cristo Rey Village (pictured here), or from the big rock at Big Rock Falls. The possibilities for the most exciting type of romance abound!


It has long been held that food is the way to a person’s heart. Add private table service, loads of candles and flowers, and a backdrop that makes you feel as if you’re in a screensaver, and you have the perfect recipe for romance. Whether you’re indulging on the coast, cayes, or the jungles of Belize (pictured here at Table Rock Jungle Lodge), a private dinner will make even the hardest-hearted of us swoon.


Not much needs to be said here. I mean, seriously, experiencing the pleasure of a deep tissue massage in the beauty of Belize side-by-side with your love. . . well, it kind of speaks for itself. In-room and spa massage for couples is available at most well-appointed lodges and resorts throughout the  country.


Destinations weddings continue to grow in popularity, and the romance that surrounds tying the knot in exotic locations such as Belize adds to their allure for both the couple getting married and the family and friends who come to witness their union. With the second largest barrier reef in the world, Mayan temples, and dense jungles, there is a location that is perfect for almost everyone. Whether you plan your wedding through a professional wedding consultant, like Signature Belize Weddings, or the resort you’re staying at, like Table Rock Jungle Lodge, you’re certain to begin your new life together in a setting you will never forget.

ATM Cave



Actun Tunichil Muknal, better known as ATM, is the acclaimed “Cave of the Crystal Maiden.” This site has been extensively documented by National Geographic and is quickly becoming one of Belize’s must-do adventures.  This one-of-a-kind experience is for fit and active people who do not mind getting wet, moving through dark spaces, and who can tread lightly!  After the initial 45-minute hike to the entrance with three river crossings and a swim into the cave’s innards, you will wade through knee- to shoulder-deep water for close to an hour before being asked to remove your water shoes to enter the dry cathedral-like upper chambers of the cave.  The rooms are littered with delicate Mayan pottery and the crystallized remains of fourteen humans.  There are no walkways, rails, glass, or other partitions separating you from the artifacts, nor is there any installed lighting.  Just you, your guide, a helmet, and a headlamp. An unparalleled experience!

Drive Time from Table Rock: 1 hour

Adventure Level: Strenuous.  This is only for those who are moderately fit and not afraid of water, darkness, or the occasional tight space. It’s a bit of a hike to get there and tricky climbing in some spots, but a must-see if you’re up for it.

No flip flops, open-toed shoes, men’s speedos, women’s bikini bottoms without shorts, or exposed midriffs.
