Instead of skiing this year we decided to make the trip to Belize for Spring Break. After extensive research here at Trip Advisor and numerous other sites, we opted to vacation at Chaa Creek. We specifically decided to take their EcoKids Rainforest Adventure as it was jam-packed with activities for our kids (and us, too!) in the morning, rest and relaxation by the pool in the afternoons and a night activity, too. The package included all food, transfers and lodging for the four of us (our kids are ages 8 and 6). To say that this was one of our most memorable vacations is an understatement…it was simply fantastic!!!! We enjoyed treasure hunts, night hikes, Mayan ruins, canoeing, hiking and horseback riding. Our guides were all friendly, knowledgeable and caring. Through Robert, Aidan, David, Joe and Michauk, we gained a true appreciation for the rain forest an Belize! It wasn’t just the guides that were great, but also Mick and Lucy, Ben, Oyneal, Miss Maria, and every other staff member we encountered. They were the epitome of customer-friendly. As for the food and drink…it was out of this world delicious!!! And the price, I think that’s the best value of all. The package is 5days/4nights and we added one additional day to just hang out! You can check out prices on their website at www.chaacreek.com. All of this and howler monkeys, too, right outside our wonderfully decorated and sumptuous cottage. We later found out that we were the first family to take this tour, which quite frankly stunned us because it was absolutely perfect!
I can only hope we get to visit Chaa Creek once again in the not too distant future, and that in the interim, Mick and Lucy might consider writing a guide for all hospitality businesses to follow. Until then, we will think fondly of Chaa Creek and stay in contact with all the fantastic staff and friends we made along the way!
PS – The Spa was amazing too…get “The Coma” massage!
