Looking for playful or passionate ways to spend time with your special someone this February? Look no further! Love is in the air and all around the Placencia Peninsula. With wonderful weather and an amorous ambiance, February is the perfect time to visit southern Belize with your significant other. Here are some fun and romantic date ideas to try now, or any time of the year!

Seaside Stay and Long Walks on the Beach

Los Porticos is the perfect choice for a romantic getaway! Beautifully designed and decorated villas situated among lush, tropical landscape and a quiet swath of golden sand face the sparkling Caribbean Sea. Close to shops, restaurants, and entertainment, Los Porticos enjoys a unique atmosphere of peace and serenity being just outside the parameters of Placencia Village proper. Intended to offer privacy, elegance, and of course, comfort, Los Porticos boasts spacious villas with private patios and impeccably maintained gardens and grounds. A soundtrack of rustling palm fronds and gently lapping waves complete the scene and set the stage for romance. Indulge in a sumptuous Italian meal at the onsite restaurant, La Dolce Vita, or order in and enjoy a private candle-lit dinner on your veranda. Stroll along the beach under the stars or share a night-time swim in the tepid sea.

Games of Love!

Be passionate and playful. Ignite and excite with a bit of friendly competition. Hit the courts at Inky’s for fast-paced fun and pick between tennis or pickleball. For a less demanding and more leisurely game, opt for a round of miniature golf instead. The professionally designed 18-hole course is fun and challenging for any skill level and the up-lit gardens create a magical atmosphere. The attached bar and restaurant provide refreshments and the perfect reprieve from rivalry.

Arouse Your Appetites with a Cooking Class for Two

Joining forces in the kitchen can bring you closer together. Whether you’re beginners or seasoned chefs, trying a new recipe or cooking technique together can be exciting. Experiment with a cashew and coconut Creole cooking class or learn how to make chocolate by hand then savor the delicious creation you’ve created together. The concierge at Los Porticos can arrange culinary tours or classes on the Peninsula or to nearby Mayan villages.

Pack a Picnic for a Private Island Escapade!

Belize has an estimated 400 offshore islands, locally called cayes, many of which are undeveloped and secluded swatches of sand and palm trees. Hire a guide to drop you and your love on one of these little ocean-ringed oases and play castaway for the day. Cozy up to one another on your beach blanket and enjoy heartfelt conversation and stolen kisses.

Splurge on a Sumptuous Couple’s Spa Treatment

Pamper yourselves with a massage or spa treatment that will rejuvenate and invigorate both the body and soul. The Placencia Peninsula has a plethora of serene spa experiences as well as therapists that will come to you on the beach at Los Porticos or in the comfort of your villa. Swedish or deep tissue massage, manis and pedis, Thai, hot stone, or Reiki treatments- the choice is yours!

Seize the opportunity to create lasting memories with your partner with these or other fun and romantic date ideas.  Whether indoors or outdoors, adventurous or relaxing, you can tailor your trip to your interests and preferences, but one thing is certain- Placencia in February is sure to have your hearts a-flutter!
