Baby Boomers and their youthful offspring discover that they’re not so different after all during a rainforest adventure in the stunning Belize. One of the best experiences I’ve ever had was watching my mom and dad and my own kids rediscover each other in a family vacation we all took at Chaa Creek, a beautiful eco-resort in Western Belize
We felt like we had a real overseas, exotic vacation, as well as a perfect, traditional Easter with all the familiar trimmings in Belize’s Chaa Creek. So, rather than fight the crowds and heat this summer, we’re taking our big vacation over the Easter holidays, spending time together and creating more memories I’m sure we’ll be talking about for a very long time.
When we arrived at Belize’s international airport where we were met by Chaa Creek’s driver/guide – the first of the many friendly staff we soon became acquainted with. The drive from the airport went quickly and gave us our first taste of what a beautiful little country Belize is, but it was nothing compared to what awaited us at Chaa Creek.
Bestselling author David Meerman Scott research led him to visit Chaa Creek and now, a couple of years later, when he was looking for a place to spend some quality time with his mother Carolyn and Yukari, we were honoured that he chose Chaa Creek. Let’s face it, the man could stay anywhere in the world he liked.
Belize’s The Lodge at Chaa Creek was recently honoured with a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor, the world’s largest travel site, according to the popular Belizean eco-resort’s owners. “It’s very gratifying to be acknowledged by such a respected travel authority as Trip Advisor, and is something the entire Chaa Creek family takes pride in. The fact that Trip Advisor’s awards are based on customer reviews makes this distinction that much more valuable to us,” co-founding owner and GM Lucy Fleming said.
You may remember back in August last year when we reported that the Travel Channel listed Belize as one of the top 10 happiest countries in the world? Well, it’s happened again, the time the March 18th edition of the Wall Street Cheat Sheet, an investor’s guide and lifestyle site e-zine, listing Belize as one of the world’s ten top happiest countries!
