Honeymoon Planning Spotlight: David & Brandi in Belize

One of the best parts about my job is being able to help match my clients to the perfect destination for what they’re looking for. I love getting to know couples and planning an itinerary to fit their every need. My absolute favorite part of the job, though, is to receive feedback upon their return about how the trip was exactly what they were looking for. That’s why I’ve decided to start sharing some of the feedback and hand-crafted itineraries so you can get a better idea of my travel planning from start to finish!
When David and Brandi were originally referred to me, they had their minds set on a honeymoon to Argentina. After bouncing around a few ideas and exploring the Argentina idea a bit more, they were hesitant as to whether the destination would be a good fit for what they were looking for in a honeymoon. So, I got to the core of their search: they wanted sightseeing and adventure with a nice balance of relaxation. They weren’t the type to sit at one resort for the duration of their stay – they wanted to explore about 2-3 cities within the destination.
Based on everything they were telling me, along with the budget they had set aside, I felt like Belize would be a great fit for the two of them, plus they would be spending half the money in airfare as they would to fly to Argentina. I’ve always had a little crush on the Coppola properties, especially after hearing Francis Ford Coppola speak at Travel Week last year, so I mentioned the fantastic honeymoon package that includes Blancaneaux Lodge in the rainforest and Turtle Inn on the beach.

David and Brandi loved the idea but something was still missing: they wanted one more hotel stay to make the itinerary a 10 night adventure, so I recommended another great property in Ambergris Caye for a change of scenery.
When we were finished putting everything together, the itinerary looked a little something like this:
3 Nights in Ambergris Caye at Victoria House
3 Nights at Blancaneaux Lodge in the Belize Rainforest (San Ignacio)
4 Nights at Turtle Inn in Placencia
Included in the honeymoon package at Turtle Inn/Blancaneaux: most meals, a spa treatment, Canoe Trip to Barton Creek Cave, a 4WD Excursion to the Mayan Citadel of Caracol & Rio Frio Cave, snorkel trip, Monkey River trip, and more

Needless to say, the honeymoon package between Blancaneaux & Turtle Inn is perfect for couples looking for an exotic getaway that’s almost totally inclusive of all meals, transfers, and activities. Ask me more about it if you’re interested in planning a similar trip, and take David’s word for it:
Everything was AMAZING! You made it so easy and we had a great time. The food was unbelievable, especially at the Copolla resorts. The people were very nice and really got to know us.
All of our transitions went smooth and Brandi did great on the small plan, she even got to fly in the co-pilots seat on one flight.
All of the accommodations were top notch, we especially loved Turtle Inn and the outdoor shower and ocean views.
Our guides for all of our excursions were very nice and extremely knowledgable. I enjoyed the Mayan ruins and Brandi loved the snorkeling trip.
Thanks again for all of your hard work in setting everything up. It went off without any issues and made our trip one of a kind. We will be reaching out to you for sure for our next adventure whenever we can get some more vacation time 🙂
