Belize often gets drowned out in the chat surrounding noisier neighbour Mexico, but when it comes to planning a luxury Central American honeymoon, little Belize has a lot to offer.

In fact, and in a lot of ways, Belize is the perfect distillation of all that Central America has to offer; be that beautiful beaches, superb diving, Mayan cultural sites, wildlife in abundance and chic boutique hotels in which to lay your newly-wed heads. If you absolutely must combine your luxury Belize honeymoon with anywhere else, then Guatemala next door is home to the legendary Mayan city of Tikal (and more), while Mexico beckons.

But back to the main event here - beautiful Belize. Starting inland, the rainforests are home to the full range of Central America's central casting wildlife characters, from howler monkeys and tapirs to the (admittedly more elusive) jaguar, and these amazing animals - and extraordinary birdlife to boot - can be viewed from charming romantic rainforest lodges.

Another ecosystem - this time almost exclusive to Belize - is the country's pine forests region. It can be a strange sensation staying in a coniferous forest in a tropical region, but again there are some sumptuous places to stay and lovely potential for romantic walks and picnics.

The icing on the Belizean honeymoon cake, however, is the stunning stretch of coastline and the cayes (islands) off shore. The cayes form part of the Great Mayan Reef system which extends along the entire coastline of Belize (and beyond) and makes this a superb snorkelling and diving destination for subaquatic spouses. Chic boutique hotels such as El Secreto on Ambergis Caye complete a very pretty honeymoon picture.
