The Lodge at Chaa Creek has the reputation as Belize’s “Destination within a destination” because there’s so much to do right here and with an emphasis on healthy activities and meals using fresh ingredients from our Maya organic farm, locally raised livestock and seafood from Belize’s pristine Caribbean, people of all ages can enjoy amazing exciting adventures.
Easter in Belize is another one of those festive celebrations that could only happen in this tranquil melting pot nestled between the Caribbean Sea and pristine rainforests of Central America. Like every holiday in Belize, Easter is a combination of the familiar and the exotic, retaining the traditional elements that North Americans and Europeans love along with an added cultural zest from Belize’s different ethnic groups, from the ancient Maya through to more recent settlers.
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.
On Friday, 22 August, the Taiwanese Ambassador Benjamin Ho presented Diane Haylock, President of the National Institute of Culture and History (NICH) and Co-Chair of the National Celebrations Commission, with a healthy cheque to help fill the skies with the light, sound and colour of an enormous fireworks display.
