We just got back from a 4 Night Trip to Chaa Creek (4/5 to 4/9) with our two children (ages 10 and 11) and absolutely loved the vacation. If you want an adventure vacation with a luxury and service then this place is it. This is our second time to Belize and the first trip was on a cruise.
Upon entering the property we were treated very warmly and had our bags wisked away to our room. We had Tree Top Suite #9 over looking the river. The room (luxury hut) is very spacious with no locks, no windows, and a hot tub on the outside deck. They do have a safe in every room so valuables and money are no problem. The service is great and the tour guides are the best in the business. Our trip to Tikal had Antonio as our guide. He has been sharing his knowledge of the area for over 20 years and it showed. Our tour was well planned and he was very informative on the excursion. Next we had Joe from the beginning of the trip (Belize Zoo) and for our half day trip to the “Stone Lady”. He is absolutely great and extremely dedicated to providing background on the Maya people and culture. Next, we had Franciso for our tour of the ATM cave and he also was the best in the business for safely exploring a deep and wet cave. As a matter of fact, Andrew Zimern from the Travel Channel was in town and Franciso was his guide to the ATM cave. I can’t wait to see the trip on TV sometime later this year. The ATM cave is a true Indiana Jones adventure crossing deep jungle, three river crossings and treking through a deep cave. Finally, our guide Robert topped off the trip with horseback rides to the Maya Farm and the Ruins on the property. He is very good with kids and provided safe and fun horseback rides. All of our trips were very early in the morning so this place is best for families that do not mind getting up early. The Tikal trip left at 7:15AM. All and all it was a very memorable trip of the Mayan area.
