Central America is for lovers! Visit one of these dreamlike destinations for your next romantic vacation—or your Central America honeymoon.
Ambergris Caye, a Belize Island
Ambergris Caye, Belize's largest island, is a white sands masterpiece—just a quick glance at any photo of Ambergris Caye is enough to ignite amorous stirrings. The island's main settlement of San Pedro is a cosmopolitan city in miniature, painted in vivid Caribbean colors. While the majority of Ambergris Caye's hotels are located in San Pedro, outlying resorts such as Xanadu Island Resort, Captain Morgan's Resort, and White Sands Cove offer that romantic castaway feel.
Head to the Beaches of Costa Rica
Costa Rica is Central America's top destination for romantic vacations. For luxury beach honeymoons near local amenities, try the Hotel El Jardin de Eden in Tamarindo Beach. For more seclusion on your Costa Rica honeymoon, visit Costa Verde, near Manuel Antonio. Adventurous couples should visit the remote Tortuga Lodge or the Paquare Jungle Lodge—the latter is only accessible by boat or helicopter. Talk about secluded!
Visit One of the Many Panama Islands
The underappreciated paradise of Panama boasts hundreds of beautiful islands. Have you dreamed about that perfect island cabana? Check out Punta Caracol in the Bocas del Toro islands, where bungalows aren't just in front of the Caribbean—they're on top of it! Sea-top cabanas are also available at the eco-friendly Coral Lodge, near the San Blas archipelago.
Another option is to go across the narrow waist of the country to the Pearl Islands in the Pacific, where a season of the reality TV show Survivor was filmed. Stay at Hacienda Del Mar for luxury accommodations, homegrown organic food, and over 14,000 acres of pristine rainforest.
Roatan, a Honduras Caribbean Island
Remember that reality TV show, Temptation Island? The show's producers selected Roatan, in the Caribbean Bay Islands of Honduras, for the location of the third season because it was secluded, uncrowded, and gorgeous. For those exact reasons, Roatan is one of the top destinations for romantic vacations and honeymoons in Central America.
Roatan romantic getaways can also be far less expensive than those on other Caribbean islands. Book a bungalow over the water at Coco View Resort, or a beachfront cabana on Roatan's softest stretch of sand at the Mayan Princess Beach Resort.
