For those of you who don’t know, 2012 is a significant year in Mayan history. To mark the occasion, the Director of Archaeology of Belize is opening some historic Mayan sites for wedding ceremonies. This is an amazing opportunity to get married in beautiful, unique spots which normally aren’t open to public ceremonies. To help you along, Hamanasi Adventure and Dive Resort has developed a destination wedding packaged specifically designed for couples wishing to say “I do” in the shade of Mayan ruins.

Couple’s staying at the resort will be offered a personal wedding coordinator who will help you design your perfect Mayan wedding. You will be able to choose from multiple sites like a pyramid at Xunantunich or the stone archways of Cahel Pech. Included in your Mayan Wedding Package is the following:

• Wedding ceremony at a Mayan archaeological site
• Ground transfers to and from the wedding site
• Champagne and flowers in room upon arrival
• Tropical flower bridal bouquet and boutonniere
• Wedding cake
• Professional photographer
• Champagne for wedding toast
• Wedding night floral trundown
• Private beach dinner set-up

Also an option for couples will be finding a Minister or Justice of the Peach to officiate, entrance fees to the Mayan site, witnesses and marriage license handling and filing. Hamanasi is located on the central coast of Belize, a convenient spot for some of the most beautiful Mayan ruins in the area. While in Belize, also be sure to visit the ancient Mayan city of Cahel Pech, the Belize atolls, the Southern Barrier Reef, Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary and Jaguar Preserve, Blue Hole National Park and the Mayflower National Park.
