Ever dream of having a beach wedding on a beautiful private island for a week with just your family and friends? At Yok Ha this dream can become a reality!
Yok Ha is located on a privately-owned island just eight miles off the coast of Dangriga in southeastern Belize. With a lovely 360-degree view of the Caribbean, the resort is an ideal place to host weddings, private parties, and intimate gatherings. The resort has five beachfront cabins, each with its own private dock and a full complement of modern amenities.
Whether you’ve dreamed of a simple ceremony or an elaborate event for family members and cherished guests, and Yok Ha offers guests all inclusive Belize beach wedding packages that include everything you need to enjoy an unforgettable destination wedding.
The resort is conveniently located close to all of the major attractions on the Belize Barrier Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that has become a mecca for snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, and sailing. Yok Ha also provides guests the complimentary use of sea kayaks for exploration of nearby islands.
Yok Ha is also conveniently close to the top attractions on the mainland including hiking through the trackless vastness of the Cockscomb Basin Nature Reserve (home to all five of Belize’s big cat species, including jaguars), boat safaris up the well-named Monkey River, and expeditions to explore ancient Maya ruins like Xunantunich and Cahal Pech.
The resort has its own onsite dive center, gourmet restaurant, and a beachfront bar serving up delicious mixed drinks and other spirits. A small yet dedicated staff are on hand to attend to you and your guests’ every need, including delicious meals made according to all dietary restrictions.
Belizean law stipulates only that foreign nationals wishing to be married in the country must be present three days prior to the ceremony. Once married, your marriage will instantly be valid in all other countries, including the United States, and your marriage documents will be written in English. Belizean law requires that the ceremony be performed by either a local priest or a registered Justice of the Peace. At least two witnesses must be present consisting of one man and one woman. Yok Ha can work with you to secure both the witnesses as well as a Justice of the Peace or preacher to officiate the ceremony.
