Why I Love Laughing Bird Caye in Belize

Laughing Bird Caye with PalapaA beautiful and stunning Belizean Isle, Laughing Bird Caye is located 11 miles from Placencia Village in Southern Belize and is an ideal base for snorkeling and scuba diving. In fact, almost all travelers who vacation in Placencia visit this gorgeous piece of paradise for a full day of diving, Blaine in Hammock Chabil Mar Belize Resortsnorkeling, sea kayaking and even picnicking.

Laughing Bird Caye got its name from the Laughing Gulls – the birds that once used to breed on the Caye, however due to a growing human presence, the colonies moved to a nearby undisturbed Caye for breeding. Presently, the Island is home to a number of exotic birds like the brown pelican, green heron, and melodious blackbird.

Eagle Ray Chabil Mar Belize ResortThe island stands on an elongated ridge of reef known as faro which is an angular atoll on a continental shelf, also known as shelf atoll, and is an important part of the Belize Barrier Reef System.

Last year in August, I stayed at Chabil Mar, a luxurious and elegant resort in Placencia and took a day trip with Splash Belize to explore Laughing Bird Caye.

Honeymoons and weddings in Belize I departed Placencia Village around 9am and arrived at this beautiful island an hour later to be astonished by the natural beauty of the atoll. I discovered a white sandy beach, scattered coconut trees and mangroves and a number of interesting plants like the spider lily, seaside purslane, morning glory and black mangrove in the 1.4 acre island.

“This reserve was declared a protected area on December 21, 1991 and is managed by the Placencia based community, Friends of Nature,” announced our guide when we were stepping out of the boat.Snorkeling General Chabil Mar Belize Resort

“It is a snorkeler’s heaven and the uniqueness of its structure contributes to both the abundance and variety of coral habitats and marine life”, he added.

We learned that the park is divided into three zones – the recreational zone, buffer zone and the preservation zone which is also known as the bird restoration zone. It was also interesting to hear that the laughing gulls have started to return to Belize Destination Weddingthe island due to the conservation efforts that have been instituted by the park rangers that live onsite.

Our guide concluded his presentation of the national park and we then headed to snorkel around the shallow waters of the island.

Sea turtles, sting rays, barracudas, moray eels, black groupers, grunts, lobsters, crabs and snappers were just a few of the many fascinating marine creatures that we encountered.

We were also amazed at the profusion of color and life that exists in the underwater world of the Belize Barrier Reef.

Many of our wedding and honeymoon couples visit Laughing Bird Caye for a beautiful and romantic adventure. Chabil Mar offers concierge services to reserve the adventures of Belize on your behalf.

Chabil Mar and Hatchet Caye were the only two romantic hotels from Placencia that made it on the list for Top Romantic Hotels for both Belize and Central America and that is very exciting to us because we have such a great partnership with Hatchet Caye, that we offer to our guests. We are so pleased to add that the traveler awards have come to us for best service, best hotel for Belize and Central America, best luxury, most romantic and best family categories, over the years.”

Planning a Wedding in Beautiful Belize

Welcome to Chabil Mar

Welcome to Chabil Mar

Planning a Wedding in Beautiful Belize

By Sofia Angeli, Guest Blogger

In the same way that some couples look for unique engagement rings, some lovebirds look for extraordinary settings when they say their vows. Those who want more than a downtown hotel for their reception usually opt for a destination wedding. Belize is a rapidly growing destination wedding location. Belize Destination Wedding

The Magic of Belize Belize Beach Wedding at Chabil Mar, Placencia, Belize

Celebrating your wedding in Belize means you will be able to say your vows in the great outdoors, with the azure sea as background. It means you can hold your reception in a garden, on the beach, or around a swimming pool, with just the tropical gardens surrounding you and palm trees for your canopy. And, at Chabil Mar, you can even reserve the entire resort for your family and friends.

Wedding ceremonies in Belize can be as exceptional as the most unique engagement rings because this is a place where you can really let your imagination run loose. A honeymoon in Belize means collecting memories you would not be able to create elsewhere. You can swim and snorkel, explore ancient Mayan ruins, trek through a rainforest, try zip-lining, lounge on a private island and sunbathe. This is where you can indulge the mood of the moment and concentrate on enjoying every minute of this special time in your married life.

The Convenience of a Belize Wedding

A lot of people shy away from getting married in another country because of the complicated arrangements and potential problems this may entail. For one thing, because of the presence of the British in Belizean history, Belize is an English-speaking country. You won’t  be needing a translation book while you are there. If you are coming from the United States, you will find that Belize is not too far away.  Belize is accessible from all regions of the United States. It is only two hours away from Dallas and Houston or Miami and Atlanta, and less than six hours away from Los Angeles.

Getting married in Belize is a safe proposition. A marriage in this country is considered legal anywhere in the world. At Chabil Mar you have a full time Belize, born and raised, wedding planner to arrange and schedule every step of the way. Wine Display Ian_Jennifer_Belize_Wedding_Chabil_Mar_Placencia

Getting Started

If you have picked Belize as the site of your nuptials, you can start your preparations by making sure you have a passport that will be valid six months after your proposed stay in the country. You will need to be in Belize at least three days before filing a petition for a license to marry. If this is not possible, you can apply for a special license. The process for this has been made simple by the Belizean government, and Chabil Mar’s wedding planner will help facilitate things for you.

Belize not only offers couples unforgettable settings for weddings. This exotic place gives lovers a glimpse of paradise and adventure to make perfect the beginning of their life together. Bridesmaids at Belize Resort Destination Wedding
