My wife, nephew and his best friend stayed for 4 nights at Chaa Creek. I had stayed there 22 years ago, and there have been some improvements (spa, pool) but I am happy to say the flavor of the hotel has remained the same. It’s a great place to bird watch, glide down a lazy river that’s a 5 minute walk from our room, see a small but excellent museum, and observe morpho butterflys at their own hatchery on the grounds.
The staff are friendly, helpful, polite, and eager to help. The food is excellent, and used local produce to enhance flavor. Waking up in the morning to the sounds of the jungle is invigorating. They also have horse riding, and various free activities. Our guide Miguel took us to several adventures: Rio Frio cave, zip line, Rio On waterfalls and ponds, tubing inside a river that goes into an amazing cave, and Mayan ruins. His knowledge of flora and fauna was excellent.
Chaa creek is an excellent place to base your stay in Belize. it’s about 1 1/2 hours away from the airport. Many of the attractions in Belize are spread out and take a while to get to. Chaa Creek is a wonderful place to return to after exploring this amazing country. I hope to return some day.
