Back from Belize! :)

Hi ladies! I've been back for about a week now! I'm still anxiously awaiting for my photogs to blog our wedding but in the meantime I thought I'd share our amazing honeymoon! DH planned it all out and it was a wonderful surprise!


Here's the first place we stayed at. It's called Hidden Valley Resort. It's about a 2 hour drive from the Belize City Airport, then another hour drive up to Pine Ridge Mountain. (Pretty sure that's what it's called) It's on 7200 acres of land with lots of gorgeous sites to see. We had our own cabin..no tvs, just the neccessities and a fireplace. So romantic...perfect for a honeymoon...kwim;)!

Our bed was decorated with our initials in flowers when we arrived.:) This is the front of our cottage. There are only about 12 on the resort. Since it was the slow season we were lucky and there were only 2 other couples there. It was all inclusive & the food was AMAZING! They had their own farm so everything was so fresh!

Butterfly falls. (On the resort.) Super private and we took advantage of the fact. We saw NO ONE all day! The second pic is our hut at Orchid Falls. DH reserved it for us ALL DAY! We had lunch there, champagne, swam in the falls and intertubed and napped in hammocks. We were the only ones there! I got to tan topless! haha

More at Orchid falls...:)


Part 2 of the trip was the beachy side of Belize.:) We hopped a Cessna over to the little town of San Pedro and stayed at Xanadu Resort. We arrived and the said we had a surprise waiting for us. They upgraded us to the top suite of the resort. Samantha Brown of the travel channel stayed there and it was voted #1!! Of all the honeymooning couples they picked us! There were 16 different rooms, on the resort and we got our own. 2 story, 3 bedroom, 3 bath, jacuzzi tub! It was AMAZING!

Our kitchen....at the edge of our pier overlooking the Barrier Reef where we snorkled...DH even held sharks, sting rays, etc! Crazyness. Me tanning looking out at our pier.

Mrs.Napton, SandP & YoungBride-- is there anything specific you recommend doing there?  Or like activities to do?  Is there nightlife?  I'm wondering if I should keep it on my list for HM...


thnx!

MissQ- I was on a medical mission trip there... so i saw the whole country! (its small!) There is so much to do.. it really depends on what kind of HM you want to do?? 


Adventure: Goggle these and there are great pics! ATM caves (mayan cave... u wade through 2 rivers and enter a cave where u hike up to sacred areas...) xuantinich ( mayan ruin), Tikal ( guatemala is a few hour ride away, this is the tallest mayan ruin in the world) Zip-lining, cave tubing, cave canoeing, waterfalls... 


Beach: I went to the smalles island called caye caulker... beautiful, quite, night life, everything all at the same time... but ITS SMALL, i could walk to one side of the island in 10 mins max. I went snorkeling with sting rays, and sharks... (so fun!) Local shopping... lots of hand made jewelry. 


Nightlife: I stay in San Ignacio- 2 hours outside of the airport... u can walk to town in a few mins... there are bars and they are like being here at home. (lots of US people have moved there)... we stay in a hotel called Cahal Pech Village resort.. they have bungalos that are very cute. 


San Pedro (ambergris)  is the bigger island on the coast...much more touristy...more shopping... more popular. 


HTH!!
