Belize Vacation Sweepstakes – Essay#45
WHY WE WANT TO VISIT THE LODGE AT CHAA CREEK (AGAIN)
We have traveled to many places in the world, and Belize is one of our all-time favorites. The appeal of Belize is that in one small, easily traversed country, we found adventure, stunning sights, magnificent animals as well as soul-restoring luxury. A hike in the jungle followed by a massage or a facial in a world-class spa is an experience I would dearly love to repeat.
Chaa Creek has everything the adventure traveler desires. A friendly, knowledgeable staff maximizes their guests’ enjoyment of the many on-site activities. Hiking around the property on the well-maintained jungle trails, canoeing on the Macal River, and bird-watching with sharp-eyed guides are a few ways to enjoy Chaa Creek. Often we sat on the porch of our beautiful tree house style cottage simply enjoying the sights and sounds of this unspoiled habitat..
The dining room at Chaa Creek is conducive to lingering over each meal. The food is delicious with a wide variety of choices. I am a vegetarian and my husband is a meat lover. Each of us was delighted with the extensive menu and enjoyed meeting other happy travelers at mealtime. Many of Chaa Creek’s other guests raved about the trips they took to Tikal and other ruins. We would love to have the opportunity to venture away from the site with enthusiastic Belizeans showing us the many attractions in the Chaa Creek area.
My thoughts return to the two treatments in the nearly magical hilltop aerie spa location. I took pictures of every area in the spa to so as to not forget the flower petals on the bathmats and other beautiful details. The facial was the best I have ever had in my life. The massage was incredible. The spa alone makes a trip to Chaa Creek a must for everyone!
