Whether you’re in a new relationship or have been together forever and a day, one of the best ways to strengthen the partner bond is to travel together. And while traveling always presents some challenges, there are numerous benefits that result from pushing your boundaries and getting outside your comfort zone.
Traveling together helps you learn to negotiate and work as a team as well as just having the luxury to spend some alone time together. Traveling as a couple also helps teach you how to take care of one another. There can also be challenges around spending money or choosing what to do, but you’ll also be rewarded when you overcome adversity or enjoy a fun experience and have the pleasure of being able to share in it together. And in this modern world where there never seems to be enough time, traveling together is a great way to remember why you fell in love with your partner in the first place.
Belize has lots of fun and exciting activities that couples can enjoy, including hiking through the pristine jungle, doing some snorkeling or scuba diving on the reef, and partaking in a cultural visit to learn more about the unique Garifuna people, the only people of African origin in the Americas who escaped the yoke of slavery. Other popular activities include horseback riding, birdwatching, canoeing, zip lining (flying down steel cables strung high up in the jungle canopy) and cave tubing (using an inner tube to float down underground rivers that flow through caves). Belize also has more than 600 ancient Maya sites to explore, including colossal pyramids and mysterious caves.
Of course, couples also come to Belize simply to relax and unwind. Whether it’s a long walk along the beach or enjoying a massage, Belize is a great place to forget the stresses of modern life. And the food and drink in Belize is simply exquisite, including fresh-caught lobster, conch, and fish plus a bevy of delicious tropical cocktails.
