Guatemala & Belize
A Perfect Escape for Two
Ker & Downey’s Guatemala and Belize Honeymoon is the perfect romantic Central American escape. Packed with adventure, history, and celebratory champagne at every turn, this exclusive vision of romance pairs the wonder of the Mayans with the luxury of your own private island in Belize.
Start your luxury Guatemala and Belize honeymoon in Antigua, one of the world’s best conserved colonial cities. A private guide escorts you through the city to discover the secrets of Antigua’s traditional history and art, including the iconic marigold Santa Catalina arch. You will also visit the chocolate museum and use a Mayan recipe to prepare chocolate from scratch. Guatemala is a captivating country and the perfect start to your honeymoon adventure.
Next on your honeymoon is the town of Chichicastenango. Explore Lake Atitlán from your retreat at Casa Palopó, an award-winning villa accommodation in the charming village of Santa Catarina Palopó nearby. Take in gorgeous views of the volcanoes and visit indigenous villages from your own private boat cruise on the lake.
Continue on to Peten, where you will find the cradle of the Mayan civilization. Stay in your own private over-water cabin, explore the hotel’s monkey island, and enjoy a relaxing massage for two at Las Lagunas Boutique Hotel. You will also explore UNESCO World Heritage Site of Tikal National Park, and see the Mayan wonders at Yaxha with a breathtaking view at sunset. It’s the perfect way to close out the Guatemala portion of your luxury Guatemala and Belize honeymoon.
The journey ends with four nights in Belize at Cayo Espanto, a private island with several private abodes. Each space is situated so that you might not see another guest for the duration of your stay. On a Guatemala and Belize honeymoon we recommend the over-water bungalow, the most intimate accommodation on the island. Romance is in the air when you’re surrounded on all sides by the beautiful, turquoise Caribbean Sea. The bungalow includes a glass floor in the suite, perfect for watching the ocean wildlife at night.
