Destinations -- Central and South America
You should first check with the Chilean Embassy and Consulate Office for current laws and requirements. Getting married abroad is as legal and accepted as if it happened domestically as long as you adhere to the proper requirements of both the host country and your own. I would suggest consulting with a resort or hotel directly or a tour operator such as Austin-Lehman Adventures who has the right connections in country. There are many romantic hotels and resorts, both in the major cities and in rural areas that will do complete wedding planning from the ceremony to the reception......read more>>
Belize's tourism board actively markets the country as a lovers' destination, and there is no shortage of special honeymoon and romantic packages from which to choose:
..Rent their very own waterfall for the day at Hidden Valley Inn.
Couples can get Mood Mud Massages at Maruba Resort Jungle Spa.
Rappel into a vertical cave shaft together, at the bottom of which they'll find a flower strewn bed next to a subterranean spring at Ian Anderson's Caves Branch. The list goes on and on...
Want to get married barefoot on a white sand beach at dusk, torches lighting your way to the altar?Not a problem.Iíve heard of couples marrying at the base of thundering waterfalls, the spray so drenching the wedding party that everyone wound up in their underwear.Or people tying the knot in a jungle lodge, near the rim of an active volcano, or hundreds of feet above the treetops, clipped into zip lines on one of the ever-popular canopy tours.I even heard of one couple who married in matching toucan outfits.With those beaks, it must have been hard for the groom to kiss the bride.
10 Romantic Venues in Mexico
*** Romance in Puerto Vallarta is easy to find. Try booking the Rhythms of the Night tour that takes you and your significant other across beautiful Banderas Bay to Las Caletas beach where you will find torch lit walkways to romantic candlelit tables. The Banderas Bay crossing occurs at sunset, which is another fantastic reason to experience this lovely cruise. After you enjoy your romantic dinner at Las Caletas beach, you are entertained by a local dance show, before dancing your own way back to the pier on your return cruise to Puerto Vallarta.
*** Manzanillo has lovely beaches in beautiful private bays all up and down it's shoreline. If you are lucky enough to visit during certain times of year, you may have the opportunity to experience glowing sand. During a nighttime stroll along the beach, each step you take disturbs the sand causing a soft green glow reminiscent of a starry sky. In reality, these are simply bioluminescent dinoflagellates, and they are actually trying to protect themselves, but that description deflates what is really a very romantic stroll along the glowing sand beach, so let's stick with the first description.
*** The JW Marriot Hotel in Cancun was host to my bride and myself a couple of years ago. We cashed in about a zillion hotel points and leveraged my wife's platinum elite status with Marriott to make our way into a $400 a night suite for six nights. For a couple of young lovers from the hood back home this was like heaven.
The bathroom was as big as most hotel rooms and included a giant bathtub and a separate shower. The bedroom had an amazing view of the Caribbean Sea and had a bed that should make most hotel beds in Mexico seem like stone. There was another room just as large as the bedroom with another balcony and if that wasn't enough we had a guest bathroom just off the foyer. This was the first time I was able to be the big shot and take my bride who has supported me through thick and thin to a place I felt she deserved. Holding her on our balcony as the sun set was definitely in the top few of our most romantic memories...read more »
