#49554 - 05/21/02 02:27 AM Honeymooning in July & need help deciding on lodging
LilyNY621 Offline
Hello all...I was wondering if you could help me decide on where to stay. My fiance & I are going to be honeymooning in Belize for 10 days beginning July 22. We have already planned the last 4 days for Cayo Espanto. How are the mosquitoes & weather at this time of year? We just got together with someone that stayed there & they said the only problem they had were the mosquitoes. Anyway.. we have decided to spend the first 3 days in the "jungle" or rainforest area of Belize. Then we would like to find a nice resort for 4 more days, then end at Cayo Espanto. I have been looking at:
For Belize/Rainforest part-
Chaa Creek
Robert's Grove

For Ambergris Caye/Beach part-
Capricorn
Journey's End
Banyan Bay
Belizean Shores
Please give us any info you can that might help us! Money is no object- we have been working hard on this wedding & we deserve a good vacation! We would like to stay at a hotel that has A/C, a pool, restaurant(although not a priority), and not too many bugs ;-) I have fears of getting bit by a strange bug in my sleep..lol

Lily, I would recommend for the inland "rainforest experience, Chaa Creek it's a very romantic setting there with a jungle spa.

As for the beach, I would suggest Mata Chica or Capt'n Morgan featured on "Temptation Island"

Capricorn I'd suggest for that very romantic dinner under a canopy of stars.

I will certainly be able to assist you if you wish.

Hi, trina I would suggest the Orange Walk area. There is a lot to offer there. In particular there is the Lamanai Outpost lodge that offers exactly what you're looking for. You can contact me if you need more info at djones@btl.net

Chaa Creek is terrific, although I would note that most of the units are in duplex cabanas which do not offer total privacy. The garden suite/honeymoon suite is private if you get both units, but it's pricey.

You might also look at Ek'Tun Lodge, which has just two private cabanas and the best swimming pool in Belize -- a natural pool hollowed out of limestone. You can often skinny-dip there with just the howler monkeys in the background for company.

Another romantic option in Cayo is Blancaneaux, in particular the villas. Gorgeous! You can even stay at Francis Ford Coppola's villa, if he's not there at the time.

Cayo Espanto is basically a part of Ambergris Caye, as it is just off the back side of the island, but once there people are reluctant to leave as everything is available there and included in the price.

Victoria House would be my choice for a romantic honeymoon spot on Ambergris -- especially the villa suites.

On the mainland coast, Robert's Grove, especially the deluxe condo suites, is terrific. Hamanasi in Hopkins is, too, and it's very similar to Robert's Grove as both were built by the same builder.
