PORTOFINO BEACH RESORT, located on Ambergris Caye is the first and only hotel who has a Soap Butler in Belize!

Portofino’s Soap concierge personally delivers a selection of hand-made, scented soaps for guests to choose after settling in to their room. If they wish, guests can select a different scent for every night of the week. Soaps, presented on a hard-wooden board, include lavender, jasmine, grapefruit, apple, bergamot and eucalyptus. These home made soaps are made especially for the resort and feature natural herbs and spices. They are hand crafted by Belizean Maya Artisan Soap makers & support the Belize National Youth Chess Foundation. The BNYCF uses chess as an educational and motivational tool to teach life skills to children from poor and disenfranchised families.

TROPIC AIR WILL INAUGURATE SERVICE FROM BELIZE CITY TO CANCUN, MEXICO ON MARCH 25th, 2013

Tropic Air today announces that on Friday, February 22nd, after ten months of work, Tropic Air received a license from the Government of Mexico. Tickets for this highly anticipated flight from Belize City International Airport to Cancun, Mexico, are now available for sale. Effective March 25th, 2013, Tropic Air will launch 6 weekly flights (daily except for Saturday) between Belize City’s Phillip Goldson International Airport (BZE) and Aeropuerto Internacional de Cancún, Mexico (CUN). Tickets are on sale now through March 24, 2013 at an introductory fare of $309 round trip from Belize City to Cancun for travel between March 25th, 2013 and December 15th, 2013. Fuel surcharge, taxes and other conditions may apply.

Cancun is Tropic’s first destination in Mexico and its third international route. Last year, Tropic added Belize City to San Pedro Sula, Honduras service to complement its existing daily Belize City to Flores, Guatemala route. This is in addition to its 11 domestic destinations within Belize.

“Cancun is finally within reach!” said John Greif III, President of Tropic Air. “We expect the market for this service to grow rapidly and we plan to add additional service as that happens. In addition, European and Caribbean connections via Cancun will now be possible for passengers who wish to avoid the long drive from Belize”.

Dream of a destination wedding!

Posted on 25 Feb, 2013 in the Belize News|Portofino News|Portofino Weddings Category. Comments Off

Embrace romance, kindle true love and reward yourself with intimacy in an authentic Caribbean paradise and one of the last unspoiled places on earth.

As you dream of a destination wedding, realize how easy it is to plan your big day abroad, especially with us at Portofino Beach Resort.
Rely on our expert on property Lorraine Reid, who will make your dreams a reality. Whether your Belize wedding is on our private beach, underwater or on top of a Maya temple, you will find unspoiled beauty wherever you look. Whatever you choose will be soul-stirring and a life-changing experience.

Belize is the only English-speaking country in Central America, just a two-hour flight from the U.S. and is perfect for a couple’s getaway, a destination wedding or for celebrating an anniversary.

Romance in Belize is easy. To help you with your ceremony in our tropical paradise, here are answers to frequent questions you might have about getting married at Portofino.

1. Will my marriage be valid and recognized anywhere I go?
Belize follows the traditional British Common Law, so your marriage will be legal anywhere in the world. As there are multiple faiths represented in the country, couples can exchange vows in a range of traditional religious wedding ceremonies, including Christian, Jewish, Maya, Garifuna and more.

2. Do you offer wedding and honeymoon packages?
Yes we do. Our Standard Wedding package includes the service of our wedding coordinator, a beautiful setup on our beach or dock, the ceremony done by a licensed person including the official license is at a cost of US$1470 which includes Governmental taxes. As well a tropical wedding bouquet and boutonnière are as well included the price.
When you are looking for a more personalized wedding package, our on-site wedding planner will be more than happy to help executing all levels of details before, during and after your ceremony.
Are you looking to hold your wedding away from our resort (perhaps on a picturesque Maya Temple)? Our wedding planner can help facilitate all logistics so you have a worry- free experience on your magical day.

For 11 years Portofino Beach Resort offers a fantastic honeymoon package. Click HERE for the details. As well our Honeymoon package can get customized according to any specific preferences you might have.

3. What is required to obtain a marriage license?
Legal Requirements are very simple if you are over 18 years old and we will be happy to help. To apply for a wedding license, you only have to be in the country three days prior to the wedding, and the license has to be applied for at least 24 hours in advance. Don’t forget that you need proof of citizenship (either a birth certificate that includes the father’s name or a valid passport). If it is not your first time, you will also need proof or divorce, if applicable, or a copy of your previous spouse’s death certificate if you are widowed.

Portofino Beach Resort in Belize simplifies the process, from ceremony to honeymoon.
