On Your Way Back from Chaa Creek, Say Hello to Our Friends the Manatees

26 November 2008 No Comment

Chaa Creek is located in the Belize rainforest. Along the way to and from our resort, where you can enjoy going on an ecotourism adventure, explore caves by tubing, or even walk on the paths and steps built by Mayans, looking at thousand year old temples from an amazingly advanced culture, but to get here, you will likely travel right by an amazing snorkeling or diving opportunity.

Don’t pass that opportunity by!

We would love to help you put together a trip that not only offers up a stay at our resort, but an adventure that includes imagespending some time at one of the greatest barrier reefs in the Americas and the second largest in the world.

The visitor in this video, met one of our locals. A manatee swimming in a beautiful habitat. Manatees are endangered species, they are very large, and we do urge our guest to be careful and respectful of their habitat.

If you should be so fortunate as to come close in proximity with one of these great water mammals you will undoubtedly go home with an amazing story to tell. We just hope that you remember to pack a great under water camera. There are several good options out there, and for what its worth, Olympus makes a sturdy little model that can be used in both fresh water and salt water.

Don’t worry, the experience will definitely be amazing and will surely create an impression on you, but it will also be very powerful if you can capture your adventure in a picture or in video to share with your family and friends, and don’t forget us! We’d love to see what you see and experience it again with a fresh perspective.

This is how close I got to a manatee whilst snorkeling in Caye Caulker, Belize.
