Maya, Vacation Sweepstakes »

[18 Oct 2012 | No Comment | ]

I first read about the Mayan culture in high school. What really struck me back then was the brutality of the Spanish towards the Aztecs, the Mayans, and other natives. The more you read about it the more you discover how much was lost, burned, and destroyed. Try to research the Mayan culture and you’re stuck with a lot of speculation, considering there are only 3 existing documents. Their breadth of knowledge of math and astronomy and who knows what else that was lost; it really haunts you.

Can you just imagine how they did it? They had none of our technology but through means I cannot fathom, they studied the skies and predicted, tested then formed the calendar we now focus our attention to especially in this year 2012 The year of The Maya’s, based just upon the movement of the galaxy. I’ve heard of the solstices and always wanted to see and experience that mystical thrill of it all. So long I’ve wanted to, but never had the means to actually carry out with this plan. To celebrate with the Mayan people our beautiful Belize has nurtured and cared for, for several hundred years.

Personally, I’ve been waiting for this for 30 years! I love the idea of the stela you’ve commissioned in observance of the date. I have a countdown clock on my iPad and a small Mayan Calendar on my keychain. I’ll be observing 13 0 0 0 0 no matter where I am, but the thought of immersing myself in the Mayan culture for a week! What an opportunity to share with my students!

This contest has proposed an excellent opportunity to experience the Mayan Winter Solstice, and to be able to share in all, and every activity that Chaa Creek has to offer. The mere thought gives me goose bumps for such an awesome thrill within the Mayan world.

We met many different people while we were visiting Belize. Time and again the conversation would drift to the upcoming Maya 2012 celebrations. When we left, our one and only regret was that our trip did not coincide with the solstice festivities of the next year. Up until now, resources seemed to dictate this as an impossible dream.

I want to be a part of this reflection of time. It would be amazing to be in the heartland of the Maya during this time of completion of the great cycle of the 13th B’ak’tum and celebration of the new age. I love history. I have studied the Mayan culture, and find it to be captivating that they were able to predict events and tell a story of the future that many years ago.

I cannot even say in words how powerful it will be to be with the river and jungle and ceremonies during this time. To be there on the solstice and join in the prayers would indeed merge my dreamworld with this reality. I’d be able to share the experience with my mate, my children, my clients, my sister midwives, and everyone I meet. I sincerely believe the energy of the place and the moment would benefit so many others besides myself.

This trip would not be for me as much as it would be for him. He works so hard and has so little time to relax and be with nature, where his heart is truly at peace. This is something that I know Belize can supply in abundance! He has heard so many stories from my father about growing up in San Ignacio, fishing on the Cayes, relaxing in hammocks and logging in the jungle forests.

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.
