The best romantic getaway- South Water Caye
Part of our Belize trip included a week-long stay on an island called South Water Caye. It's located two hours from Belize city and the private island about 15 acres in size. It's the perfect place for a romantic getaway. During our stay, we had the whole island to ourselves.
The rooms at Pelican Resort are individual houses equipped with private bathrooms, hammocks and private decks. There's a common house where we had our meals and class. We also had access to Kayaks and volleyball.
We did a lot of snorkeling during our week on South Water. We visited mangroves, the coral reef and other interesting places. I was afraid of some of the snorkeling areas because there was strong currents sending us further and further from our boat. The mangroves were filled with jellyfish and nearly everyone swam through a prickly-stingy patch of jellyfish eggs. (It was awful!)
