I had the pleasure of visiting Belize City for 9 short hours this past November while on a Holland America Ship that graced your port. It was a whirl wind tour with a fabulous guide who took us up into your rain forest for a day of tubing and a lovely lunch. I very much wish to come back to your beautiful country to explore more fully Belize and her lush rain forests with my family. I’ve been telling my …

REVIEW FROM JULY 2003 STAY:
I’m posting this after the fact but there aren’t many reviews and we think very highly of this place. Macal River Jungle Camp is a subsidiary of Chaa Creek, located a mile or so away on the Macal River. The setting is gorgeous and very “jungly” – we saw iguanas, tarantulas, motmots, toucans, aracaris, and parrots from our hammocks. The tent-cabins are sweet, spread out around a clearing in the jungle …

A Natural Indulgence – Chaa Creek

Chaa Creek subscribes to the fundamental guidelines of ecotourism. According to a statement from the two founders, “The goal of Chaa Creek is to establish a model of low-impact, sustainable development. By stimulating interest in the environment, natural history and local culture. We hope to demonstrate the long term benefits of ecotourism over other environmentally damaging options for development.”

Belize Country Statement at Copenhagen

Belize is a country blessed with the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere, the second longest in the world, thousands of beautiful coral islands, and abundant mangrove, broadleaf and pine forests.
