Beginner July 2019 British Columbia

Belize (or Maui?)

Kristie, on 8/January/2019 at 21:32 Posted in Honeymoon
Hi has anyone gone to or planning to go to Belize?
My fiancé and I have been to Honolulu in the past and were thinking of going to Maui this time around. But then Belize came up. As much as we love Hawaii, I feel like we could always go on another trip in the future to visit Maui.
Our honeymoon would be end of July for a week. I’m worried about it being “hurricane season” and I get that it’s their rainy season, but they still have pretty high temperatures.

Any input or reviews would be appreciated!! Thank you

    Did you make a decision? Both seem like great locations but definitely different experiences.

    I've been to belize with friends, I love it ! but honestly I wouldn't know if I would recommend it for honeymoon. Its too quiet at night unless you go to the bars. I feel like you'd have more to do and see in Maui

    Belize is beautiful and there are some good resorts there as well. We did a river tour that picked us up outside a bed and breakfast and went from there. The dolphins chasing us and playing behind the wake of the boat was the best thing ever! We saw monkeys playing in the trees and alligators (crocodiles?) on the banks. We also went to a nature reserve and played with the monkeys. I am not a lizard person but eventually got used to the giant iguanas roaming around. We tend to like adventure vacations as opposed to sitting on a resort sunning ourselves, so it was great for us.

    Can't say much about Belize, as I've never been there, but my vote would go towards doing something different. Even if it's an experience, and you decide you still like Hawaii better, you will have new experiences/memories made for your honeymoon that's not comparable to any other vacation.

    I have been to belize several times on cruise ships. i have never stayed in a resort there. and i personally wouldn't go back. but again it is a different experience from a ship vs a resort.

    you may have to worry about hurricanes. i do find the threat of them is worse for late aug/sept/oct. but since its hurricane season, you usually get a cheaper vacation.

    We live in NS and regularly get hit by the end of hurricanes, we have found the worst time to be from mid August to end of October. I know Hurricane season is longer then that but that is usually when we get hit the worst so you could be fine.
