There are historic honeymoon hot-spots like Tahiti, Paris and Jamaica, but there are also lots of fabulous up-and-coming destinations which definitely deserve your attention! One such location is Belize. Super convenient for East Coasters, it maintains an authentic feel with some of the most breathtaking scenery you can find. For couples looking for an intimate, boutique experience, El Secreto in San Pedro Town, Belize is a gorgeous option.
Recently named one of the “Best New Hotels in the World” by Conde Nast Traveler’s 2013 Hot List, El Secreto is a tropical-style resort with only 13 free-standing thatched roof villas. Beyond the breathtaking beachfront views, each villa includes an indoor hot tub, private outdoor Jacuzzi, enclosed outdoor shower, outdoor desk and an in-room electronics system which allows you to control the room’s settings from your own iPhone or iPad.
Not only is the location beautiful, but it’s convenient to local honeymoon hot spots like Belize’s famous Blue Hole. Thankfully, El Secreto has a dedicated excursion planner who can help you design the perfect adventurous honeymoon – whether you’re interested in scuba diving, snorkeling, sea kayaking, parasailing, windsurfing, fishing, cave tubing or cycling.
