In a time when global and environmental change is occurring at such a rapid pace, it‘s becoming more and more difficult to escape the hustle-and-bustle of city life and to experience the natural world. From time to time, we need to get away from our manmade, city lives and to visit parts of the world with a slower pace and a deeper closeness to nature. When we are immersed in nature- without the distractions of computers, TV, and iphones- we can truly relax our minds and rejuvenate our spirits. My family and I live in an urban city, out of touch from the natural wonders that exist in places such as Belize. We would treasure a vacation together to connect with nature (and each other!) and to appreciate the nature of Belize. And why The Lodge at Chaa Creek? Because when we visited the Chaa Creek website, our family was immediately struck by the beauty of Belize and the appreciation and respect that Chaa Creek gives to the natural gifts of the country. We also felt the sense of balance that Chaa Creek has achieved- ecoadventure with comfort, relaxation with intellect, and the environment with sustainable business. It is the best place to explore the nature of Belize and to learn about the unique culture, ecology and people. Plus, Chaa Creek looks like a FUN place to visit! The various activities for all ages are sure to keep smiles on our faces. I imagine our family will leave Chaa Creek with a deeper appreciate for Belize, the environment, and, hopefully, each other. With all our busy schedules, it has been quite awhile since we were about to experience a family vacation such of those offered at Chaa Creek. We would love for our family to meet the Chaa Creek family!
