Amor, gra, liebe, maitsuna, rakkaus, cariad, mahal, kjaerlighet or love, there’s a word for it in every language the world over.
And we’re such romantics here at Chaa Creek that we set aside an entire month to celebrate St Valentine’s Day in Belize.
The sheer beauty of Belize, with verdant rainforests, warm clear Caribbean waters, white sand beaches and a riot of tropical colours provides the perfect backdrop for lovers of all ages to celebrate their love.
And we’ve teamed cupid up with Ix Chel, the Maya goddess who looks after lovers, to present a uniquely Belizean romantic experience that could only happen in the beautiful Heartland of the Maya.
Rather than buy that special person flowers, immerse them in stunning tropical gardens and a vibrant rainforest alive with colour and the songs of exotic birds and wildlife. Explore ancient Maya temples and cities for a once-in-the lifetime romantic adventure you’ll never forget. Let our staff – recently voted by Conde Nast readers as among the worlds very best – pamper you after a day of exploring, swimming, hiking, horseback riding, canoeing or just relaxing with each other in jungle serenity. A candlelit dinner on your private veranda with the unspoiled starry night sky above and the trees lit up with fireflies will make for a truly magical evening.
A lazy breakfast with fresh tropical fruits followed by a couple’s massage in our hilltop spa looking down over the Macal River valley and the distant Maya Mountains will keep that loving feeling very much alive throughout the day.
And during your stay at Chaa Creek you’ll be loving the Earth as well. As recognised leaders in green, sustainable ecotourism, we show how one can live in harmony with nature without sacrificing luxury.
Being the romantics we are, we’ll be surprising lovebirds with little specials throughout February and especially during Valentine’s Day , and are always open to suggestions from lovers to make their time here that much more special.
(Even St Valentine himself wouldn’t be expected to know where all those words for love come from. In order, they’re Spanish, Irish, German, Basque, Finnish, Welsh, Filipino, Norwegian and English)
