Related Blog Post: Private Island Wedding in Belize
You can charter our island for the entire week for your Belize wedding package; we would love to host your wedding in Belize. Our island is very remote and unique, not only in Belize but in the Caribbean. We hope that you will decide that our island is the best Belize wedding location for you.
First and foremost, our island is truly a private island. There is no other facility but the dive shop; our facility would be yours for the week. This is unheard of in the Caribbean; almost every island resort share their island with many other hotels. Second, our island is an undeveloped as possible. If you come from a camping background, you would consider it cushy, but if your background and expectations are from a more traditional standpoint, you would call it 'rustic'. Many would not consider our facilities adequate for a wedding, so you need to consider the needs of your group. We do not have flush toilets but use ecologically-friendly composting toilets (we flush nothing into the sea.) Also, there are no toilets attached to the rooms, you must walk to the toilets and showers, which are unheated. You can read more about our island facilities on our private island page.

If you would like to rent our island for your wedding, you would use our charter policy. This is not posted on the website as it is revised often, but you can request the latest version from us. To give potential wedding parties an idea of what the charter policy includes, here are the highlights:
1 The minimum number of paying guests we need for the charter price is 18. So these rates and other parameters only apply to your group if it is at least 18 people, not counting you, the group organizer. We can sleep 36 in cabanas, double (and sometimes triple) occupancy. If your group is less than 18, use the 'group' policy rather than the 'charter' policy.
2 On most weeks during the 'high' season, another group comes out to the island on Wednesday (our Belize Adventure Week group). If you do not want this group joining your group, then you have to charter 30 guests so that we count the Belize Adventure Week trip for that week as 'full'. If you are considering a date during the 'low' season (November, early December, mid - late May, or some dates in the summer), then you could charter for 18+ rather than 30.
3 We are open late November – mid May. If you wish to charter when we are closed we may open up for you depending on the time of year and size of your group. There also may be an additional charge for one of the boat rides since there is no other group to share this cost. Again, this depends on the size of group and date of charter.
4 For groups up to 20, the cost is 17.5% off of our regular rate of $2095/person, which comes to $1728 each. For groups larger than 20, the discount is higher, see charter policy. Children pay the same as adults, unless you don’t need to count them towards your total to reach a certain size for a higher discount. If you wish to pay children’s rates, see Kid’s Policy.
5 Free spots: one free spot for the group organizer for 12-19 paying guests, 2 free spots for 20+ paying guests, and 3 free spots for 29+ paying guests.
