Enter to win a FREE 10-DAY Weddingmoon in Unbelizable Belize!!!
Belize's unspoiled beauty, history and nature create the backdrop as your participate in the "Maya Marriage of Many". As the 5,126 year old Mayan Calendar draws to an end in December 2012, it is a time of renewal, rebirth, and new beginnings.
Say "I do" on the 3,000 year old steps of the temple of Cahal Pech in Cayo, Belize. After the many wedding festivities, head over to Ambergris Caye relax along the second largest barrier reef in the world. The ending of the Ancient Maya Calendar is a big deal, and what better way to celebrate than with a wedding of equal measure. Something so significant should be shared – so we have planned a wedding to involve 36 couples and 218 guests for one epic rehearsal, wedding and reception!
Picture yourself as you look around you and see beautiful colorful fabric that streams and billows from the canopy of trees – you walk up the 3,000 year old steps through an archway, your guests are sitting on the stairs lining the temple, and your fiancé is standing waiting for you to come through. He is lined up with 35 others, waiting for their brides. A Maya Shaman, Priest and Justice of the Peace will officiate over the 36 couples getting married in unison, bringing together the true spirit of this time – New Beginnings and Love. The sounds of children singing Mayan songs, drum beats of tribal drummers, music of all sorts will fill the air. This isn't a wedding for just anyone, this is for someone who embraces the novel, unites with the spiritual environment, joins souls with their beloved, fuses with that which is bigger than ourselves, and Becomes One With Belize.

Island and main tourism destination. The island's only settlement, San Pedro (pictured here), is a funky beach town lined with intimate accommodations and simple restaurants. Scuba diving and snorkeling are the biggest draws here -- the world's second largest barrier reef is located right off the island's coast.
The largest ruin in the five-square-mile ancient Mayan city of Altun Ha is the 54-foot-tall Temple of the Masonry Altar, which was the center of religious activity. Altun Ha is accessible by car from Belize City or by boat up the Belize River from Ambergris Caye.
Belize is a haven for scuba divers and snorkelers, because it's sheltered by the world's second-largest barrier reef. Explore marine parks like the Hol-Chan Marine Reserve, off the southern tip of Ambergris Caye, where you can spot nurse sharks, sting rays and schools of colorful, tropical fish.
Southern Belize's Sapodilla Cayes Marine Park is a 77-square mile area of shallow waters, excellent diving and snorkeling and 14 beautiful cays, including Hunting Caye, pictured here. Half Moon Beach, on Hunting's eastern shore, is known to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the country.
Tubing down the Caves Branch River, underneath limestone cave systems and through the thick Belize rainforest, is a popular tourist activity. Mayan ruins, like the Jaguar Paw caves, can be seen along the tour.
One of the tallest buildings in all of Belize is the 130-foot El Castillo pyramid in the ancient city of Xunantunich. From the top of El Castillo on a clear day, you can see neighboring Guatemala. The ruins are located eight miles west of San Ignacio Town in the Mayan village of San Jose Succotz -- to get there, you'll take a hand-cranked ferry across the Mopan River, then hike a mile uphill.
In the middle of the turquoise Caribbean Sea is the Blue Hole Marine Reserve, an almost perfectly-round limestone cave that is a quarter-of-a-mile wide and more than 480 feet deep. Snorkelers can explore the hole's perimeter, while divers can find a series of underwater caves and passageways dotted with limestone stalactites that date back to the Ice Age.
