There are many people around me who are just fond of eating Salmon and cannot think about anything else when having an option of sea-food. As a matter of fact, Salmon is very difficult to cook.

During the ensuing years we have returned to this sustainable “green” resort with our family, friends and visitors to take a canoe trip down the Macal river, tour the butterfly farm, go horseback or bike riding or to enjoy their delicious meals. However, this past fall was the first time since my initial trip that I actually stayed overnight at Chaa Creek. I went on this trip with a number of goals: touring the Chaa Creek Preserve, the 33-acre Mayan Organic Farm run by owners Mick and Lucy Fleming, poking around their Global Kitchen and visiting with the chef, Mario.
