Everyone needs something simple in their lives, right?

My husband and I have never been on a honeymoon.  We have never even taken a vacation together and we will be celebrating our 16th anniversary at the end of this year.  I’d love the opportunity to take him to Belize and to the Lodge at Chaa Creek.  It would be heavenly to explore a new place to us both and to see things we’ve never seen before up close.  It would just be wonderful …

Belize is clearly a culturally and ecologically rich country

I am definitely interested in the Mayan culture of Belize, but my true interest lies in the natural environments it has to offer. My bookshelves are filled with animal books, including both local and foreign (to me). Many of these animals I have only seen in books and on television.

I found Paradise in Belize

Between technology and the city lifestyle we feel at times disconnected . We would love to enjoy the peaceful bliss of the spa above the Macal River or relaxing in the comfort of a magnificent Jungle Lodge. Sharing photos with my friends of your beautiful place has indeed made them think that one needs to stop and live vicariously at least once.

Naturally I think Belize and I are destined to meet

Since I accidentally stumbled upon your web-site recently, I have become fascinated and enamored with both the country of Belize and your inspirational eco-resort Chaa Creek. I’ am not a true believer in chance happenings, so naturally I think Belize and I are destined to meet, and this sweepstakes has given me a unique opportunity to achieve that desirable fate. Newly engaged, my fiancé and I have been looking for that perfect honeymoon destination, and perfect is exactly how Chaa Creek looks and sounds to us.

Anyone who goes to Belize returns touched in some way

I also think the ancient (and living) Mayan culture of Belize gives
travelers a much deeper experience to connect with in comparison to
some other potential vacation destinations where there is less
mystery & just less left physically intact (thinking of the temples)
to explore & consider.

Belize sounds like a place that is a must-see.

Having a life rich with travel and being able to bring your loved ones with you is priceless and I am all for making more memories in new places around the world. Belize, with its beautiful coast line and a famous barrier reef, abundant flora and fauna and amazing remains of the Mayas is one of the countries on top of my list to visit.

A Chaa Creek Vacation in Belize? Yes, Please!

Some of the things we are really looking forward to are: diving and snorkeling in the Belize Barrier Reef, exploring the ancient Maya historical sites, sampling the best local restaurants, white water rafting through the jungles, and meeting many new and interesting people along the way! I actually have a keen interest in photography and so I’m looking forward to toting my big DSLR camera and zoom lens and capturing as much of the country as possible… More than just hitting the routine tourist destinations and then hopping on a plane back to the States, I hope to really get a chance to intermingle with the local culture and people and get to know them on a more personal level.

Traditional Healing

Day three came to a start with the usual get go as the children ran excitedly to get their luscious breakfast and prepare for another adventurous day. The previous theme – The Ancient Mayas was so enthralling that it still remained in the back of their minds.

For an ADVENTURE! I know going to Chaa Creek in Belize would be an experience of a lifetime, a one of a kind adventure.  To me that means being dropped into a different culture, a different way of life, something outside of the comfort ‘zone’.  That would redefine my own perceptions and understanding of the world around me.  I think seeing a country like Belize, that is just teaming with history from the days of …

This contest to win a trip to Belize is just what the doctor ordered. Sadly, last June my mother passed away, just months after our oldest brother passed. My father passed 15 years ago. So, that leaves me (Robert) and my sister (Constance) the only two left. We are now so conscious of how fast people can go, that we stay in touch often through skyping and phone calls. I landed a job here …

Belize itself is considered an ecological paradise.  With its incredible range of biodiversity in respect to both flora and fauna, it’s a biologist’s dream come true.  The history of the locale is yet another feature that only adds to the experience.
Now, couple that incredible landscape, environment, and history with a resort like Chaa Creek, and it becomes obvious why this is the only destination anyone would ever consider while visiting Belize!  I can’t …

Who wouldn’t want to visit the Lodge at Chaa Creek! Our adventurous daughter has made it to Belize on a frugal backpacking trip and encouraged us to submit an essay. She is about to finish a residency in emergency medicine in Phoenix while our son is finishing his MBA in D.C. They haven’t seen each other in almost three years so it would be amazing to have a family reunion of four …

“What about us” song describes my thoughts so well.  We are destroying our rainforests every day and no one seems to care. The Michael Jackson song is so powerful  The wonderful land of Belize and the eco system is being destroyed every day.  I want to see this country and spread the word to try to stop this destruction.  We are too interested in quick packaging and do not even recycle.  I have tried to get …

My family and I had one of the best vacations we’ve ever had on our 2009 trip to Belize. Our time spent at Chaa Creek was outstanding. The all- Belizean staff at the restaurant, the spa, ect., took superb care of all of our needs and requests. From the stables to the spa to our trip over the border into Guatemala to Mick Fleming having a blue morpho butterfly chrysalis brought to our villa for our kids to watch …
