Cannot say enough great things about our recent 4-night stay at Chaa Creek. From the moment we arrived, we felt the comfort and peacefulness the place had to offer. The staff immediately explained what was included in our package, gave us a little tour and showed us to our beautiful room. No keys – just hammocks issued (in-room safes though). The place is so beautiful, set in the jungle with hardwoods used throughout. Everything open air and there is a …

This is a belated review, but last March, we spent several days at Chaa Creek and had a wonderful time. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. Well-maintained and immaculate. We were astonished by how luxurious it was, while at the same time, feeling that you were far, far away from it all. The combination of luxury and a feeling of isolation (though in reality, you aren’t that far away from San Ignacio).
We had the Garden Jacuzzi room, …

For an ADVENTURE! I know going to Chaa Creek in Belize would be an experience of a lifetime, a one of a kind adventure.  To me that means being dropped into a different culture, a different way of life, something outside of the comfort ‘zone’.  That would redefine my own perceptions and understanding of the world around me.  I think seeing a country like Belize, that is just teaming with history from the days of …

This contest to win a trip to Belize is just what the doctor ordered. Sadly, last June my mother passed away, just months after our oldest brother passed. My father passed 15 years ago. So, that leaves me (Robert) and my sister (Constance) the only two left. We are now so conscious of how fast people can go, that we stay in touch often through skyping and phone calls. I landed a job here …

Do you love adventure? I’m not talking about getting lost in traffic while on your way to the next amusement park to explore with thousands of others people. But about canoeing down the Macal River while taking the in breathtaking scenic views or even hiking along a network of trails within a 365-acre forest reserve.
Do you love wildlife? Being able to see just a few varieties of monkeys, iguanas or armadillos …

Belize itself is considered an ecological paradise.  With its incredible range of biodiversity in respect to both flora and fauna, it’s a biologist’s dream come true.  The history of the locale is yet another feature that only adds to the experience.
Now, couple that incredible landscape, environment, and history with a resort like Chaa Creek, and it becomes obvious why this is the only destination anyone would ever consider while visiting Belize!  I can’t …

Who wouldn’t want to visit the Lodge at Chaa Creek! Our adventurous daughter has made it to Belize on a frugal backpacking trip and encouraged us to submit an essay. She is about to finish a residency in emergency medicine in Phoenix while our son is finishing his MBA in D.C. They haven’t seen each other in almost three years so it would be amazing to have a family reunion of four …

Wow! I have many, many reasons on why The Lodge at Chaa Creek would be the best, and I mean the BEST vacation ever! Let me start off by saying that “Adventure” is my middle name! Not to mention my husband’s.  From the physical aspect of it to the wonders and challenges of the culture, environment and discovery. I really can’t imagine arriving and setting my sights on the beauty of Belize. I …

“What about us” song describes my thoughts so well.  We are destroying our rainforests every day and no one seems to care. The Michael Jackson song is so powerful  The wonderful land of Belize and the eco system is being destroyed every day.  I want to see this country and spread the word to try to stop this destruction.  We are too interested in quick packaging and do not even recycle.  I have tried to get …

My family and I had one of the best vacations we’ve ever had on our 2009 trip to Belize. Our time spent at Chaa Creek was outstanding. The all- Belizean staff at the restaurant, the spa, ect., took superb care of all of our needs and requests. From the stables to the spa to our trip over the border into Guatemala to Mick Fleming having a blue morpho butterfly chrysalis brought to our villa for our kids to watch …

In my search for a unique and adventurous trip, Belize turned out to be the perfect destination. The Lodge at Chaa Creek, an “award-winning Belize resort” offers the amenities I would need to explore the rich culture and history of the country. The land has so much to offer, especially for a family so eager to get out and learn new things. The experience is both romantic, for my boyfriend and I and mother …

I’m working with two international nonprofit organizations serving millions of people on an upcoming promotion. The men and women who support these organizations love Belize. (Or they should as they are world travelers!)
I’m working with them to promote their work and my upcoming journeys to destinations all over the world. My company, Journeys of the Spirit® is launching an exciting itinerary of travel in 2010 and I thought I’d use my journeys to …

I believe that Belize is an ideal vacation destination.  The country is not plagued by crime and corruption like Mexico. Speaking english to the locals greatly enhances my ability to relax. In addition, I prefer to take an ecovacation whenever possible. Ideally, the only expansion of my carbon footprint is from the jet fuel burned to get me to the destination.  Lastly, I feel that if I am going to go on a vacation, it …

Although I have never been to The Lodge at Chaa Creek, it appears to be an amazing place of mystery, ancient delights, and discovery. It appears to be the best place to stimulate a family’s intellect as they explore the unlimited resources that the culture of Belize has to offer. The rates are extraordinarily reasonable for the unreachable accommodations. The details of the room and grounds will charm and dazzle you, keeping you in awe. …

When I was searching for classes this semester, I stumbled upon a class entitled “Making a Difference, Service and Travel Writing.” Intrigued, I read the description. The entire class is centered on the history of Belize and the techniques of documenting experiences effectively. During Spring Break, my class of twelve will be traveling to San Ignacio, Belize on a missions trip. This trip, however, will not be luxurious. We’ve been informed that we’re only allowed to bring one carry-on …
