Belize – Adventure Lovers Look No More…

Belize is a treasure chest of history - think Mayan temples, reef and rainforest.  Boasting the largest barrier reefs in the northern hemisphere, Belize offers a spectrum of exciting and breathtaking options for couples considering a wedding in Central America.

Beach locations are plentiful, or for a more exotic feel choose a jungle setting, complete with lush foliage, exotic flora and sounds of waterfalls. It is tradition to release blue morpho butterflies – the iridescent butterfly native to the rainforest as part of your wedding ceremony.
