    • Day 1: Placencia - Arrival

      When you touch down, a driver will greet you and whisk you away on the down Belizean coast along the beautiful Hummingbird Highway. Begin your week of sun, sand and sea in Placencia, a coastal village with a Garifuna twist that boasts powdery sands and azure water as far as the eye can see. Check into the charming Caribbean Beach Cabanas, for a taste of barefoot luxury that is all yours for three blissful nights.

    • Day 2: Placencia - Hike rainforest trails to hidden waterfalls

      Today will be all about the jungle! Discover one of Belize’s most spectacular parks, the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, a vast expanse of protected land that stretches from the Caribbean coast to the base of the Maya Mountains. Hike rainforest-shrouded trails in this virgin reserve where jaguars, tapirs, deer, monkeys and hundreds of species of tropical birds are free to roam, and revel in this unparalleled opportunity to indulge in the wild natural beauty of Belize.

    • Day 3: Placencia - Paradise found on pristine Caribbean beaches

      This perfect stretch of sand is the perfect spot to relax – beautiful powdery beaches studded by palm trees, and calm, turquoise waters that reach as far as the eye can see. Still, if you’re craving a dose of civilization and a bit of colorful Caribbean flair, explore the lively town of Placencia, where you can sample the local fare and savor an ice-cold beer or a tropical cocktail at a laid-back waterfront restaurant.

    • Day 4: Placencia to Ambergris Caye - Cave tubing thrills, then fly east to the cayes

      After breakfast, trek along subtropical trails, wade through a river and pass through two caves before you reach a stunning lagoon surrounded by steep limestone walls. Here, climb into an inner tube and let the current carry you into two large chambers – impressive sanctuaries used by the Maya for sacrificial rituals. Plunge into darkness and listen to the sounds of the cascading waterfalls and churning rapids. Once you exit the cave, continue your float along the river until you arrive back at the starting point. Then, continue east and board a puddle-jumper flight bound for the powdery white sand beaches of Ambergris Caye. Once you arrive, check into your king suite at PUR Boutique Cabanas, and take a dip in your private plunge pool – the perfect end to a day full of adventure.

    • Day 5: Ambergris Caye - Discover the charm and Caribbean flair of San Pedro

      Today is yours to spend as you wish - snorkel, kayak, and swim in the perfectly calm waters of the Caribbean, or head into town and get a taste of local Belizean fare. Conch fritters are a must!

    • Day 6: Ambergris Caye - Sailing, snorkeling & sunning on secluded beaches

      Board a catamaran and cruise up the coast of North Ambergris Caye to Mexico Rocks, one of Belize’s most famous snorkeling sites, located only 15 minutes from San Pedro. Don a snorkel and discover the undersea splendors of this unique patch reef, where a shallow cluster of corals provide refuge to a variety of marine life including scallops, anemones, shrimp, sea fans, and eels that shelter in the coral’s nooks and crannies, while abundant fish life includes grouper, snapper, grunts, butterfly fish, and many other brightly colored tropical beauties. Afterwards, stop off at a remote and secluded beach for a delicious beach BBQ before returning to San Pedro.

    • Day 7: Ambergris Caye - Perfect sandy shores & a candlelit dinner for two

      Spend your last day settling deeply into a laid-back island vibe. Today is yours to spend how you wish - wander white sand beaches, take a dip in your private plunge pool, head into town for a taste of local flavor, or take one last swim in the calm Caribbean Sea. Dinner on your last night will be unforgettable. Dine at a romantic, candlelit table for two, dig your toes into the sand as the stars come out, and dndulge in exotic flavors, tropical smoothies and warm breezes, as you toast to a truly memorable honeymoon.

    • Day 8: Belize City - Departure

      Bid farewell to turquoise waters and powdery sands, with a short flight to Belize City, where you will depart on your international flight home.
