Looking for an exotic yet nearby destination to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your special someone? Belize is a small, English-speaking nation with a long Caribbean coastline, and it is one of the most beautiful and ecologically diverse countries on the planet.
Belize is almost tailor-made for romantic getaways. With a mainland covered in dense jungles teeming with exotic animals like monkeys, jaguars, and giant iguanas and the largest coral reef system in the world, there’s no shortage of natural beauty in Belize. Popular activities include snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking, bird watching, zip lining, and exploring some of the 600 ancient Maya temples, palaces, and sacred caves that dot the landscape.
Far less crowded than the nearby Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, Belize has just 400,000 inhabitants from a dozen different cultures. Yet Belize is a peaceful, democratic country where the locals are world-renowned for their friendliness, hospitality, and genuine ability to make every visitor feel right at home. And being just 70 miles wide and 120 miles long, Belize is small enough to explore yet big enough to have plenty of unspoiled natural scenery for everyone to enjoy.
The world has certainly been waking up to all that Belize has to offer. In less than a month, National Geographic Travel, Lonely Planet, and Condé Nast Traveler have all included Belize in their roundup of “must-see” destinations in 2019, and the Discovery Channel recently broadcast a historic, two-hour live program direct from the Belize reef to millions of viewers around the world.
Airlines have certainly taken notice of the growing demand for travel in Belize. In the past year alone, Sun Country Airlines, Southwest, WestJet, and Aeromexico have all added new non-stop routes to Belize from major cities across North America like Calgary, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, Newark, and Houston. And for travelers exploring Central America, Belize can be easily reached with non-stop flights from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Panama.
