We stayed at Chaa Creek for the last 3 nights of our stay in Belize. We were picked up from the airport in Belize City, and right off the bat we were treated to a fascinating discussion on the Mayans by our driver Hugh. We liked him so much we requested him as our guide to Xunantunich, the nearby Mayan Temple. The tour was a treat – we were there early enough to have an hour to ourselves before the cruise tours came through. Hugh is a fountain of information, and he’s passionate about the history!
It’s not just Hugh – the caliber of Chaa Creek’s guides is amazing – we were also treated to a great horseback ride by Robert, who also turned out to be an archeology student. We were impressed and inspired by the passion and dedication to education by all the guides.
They were definitely the highlight of our stay.
Other than that, the lodge is wonderful in itself – beautiful grounds, pretty good food, and a family atmosphere. Our favorite touches were the hammocks on our deck, the lodge dogs, and the beautiful pool.
