One of the most romantic places to enjoy an intimate holiday in Belize is the lovely Placencia Peninsula. Located in the southeastern part of the country, Placencia is 16 miles of golden sands with an unforgettable view of the Caribbean. Famous for its “barefoot ready” motto and relaxed pace of life, Placencia is the perfect place to stroll hand in hand along the beach, enjoy fabulous fresh-caught seafood, and feel the delicious heat of the sun on your skin.
Located on the Placencia Peninsula, Laru Beya is one of Belize’s premier beach resorts. With spacious suites equipped with king sized beds, full kitchens, and a gorgeous view of the beach just steps away, Laru Beya is one of the most romantic and homely places in the country with a variety of vacation and tour packages.
Laru Beya is also home to one of the country’s best restaurants. The Quarterdeck, located right on the beach, is famous for its friendly service and use of fresh, local ingredients for all of its dishes. Making their own bread in-house daily, The Quarterdeck has a mouthwatering array of dining options suitable for all tastes and dietary needs.
Love is one of the most important emotions for Belizeans, and the bartender at Laru Beya specializes in crafting unique drinks for couples. Sip on a dazzling variety of fresh juices or try a cocktail made with one of Belize’s signature rums as you spend some true quality time with your special someone.
Other romantic options at the resort include professional couples’ massages, waking up early to see the sun rise over the sparkling waters of the Caribbean, and indulging in some cultural appreciation by visiting the nearby village of Seine Bight, home to the Garifuna people recognized by the United Nations for their contributions to the oral and intangible heritage of humanity.
Whether your idea of a perfect Valentine’s Day is relaxing on the beach and drinking in the views or something more adventurous like climbing a 2,000-year-old Maya temple and trying to spot a jaguar, there’s something for everyone. And the perfect cherry on top is staying at the lovely Laru Beya resort on the Placencia Peninsula, famous for its friendly, attentive, and professional staff.
The gentle crash of the sea, the intimate privacy of the suite, and the tranquil rhythms of tropical life form the perfect recipe for an unforgettable romantic vacation.
