Belize comes alive during the month of September as the nation celebrates its relatively recent independence from Great Britain on September 21, 1981. Independence Day follows St George’s Caye Day on September 10th, the national commemoration of a 1798 battle that marked the turning point of the early Spanish/British Honduras conflict and what is considered to be the defining moment in Belizean statehood.

I have been wanting to write this letter for a long time. We stayed at Chaa Creek from March 1 to March 6, 2013, so I apologize for taking so long. Our stay was not only the highlight of our trip to Belize but one of our most memorable stays anywhere!

Belize is a sanctuary for birds because of its extensive protected forests, varied wetland habitat and strategic location on a major migratory route. Over 587 birds have been recorded in the country, of these approximately 20% are migrants from North America.

After two days of hiking, climbing and swimming, I was ready for a bit of a change of pace, so we headed to the eco jungle resort, Chaa Creek. At this 365 acre resort, you’ll have everything at your fingertips to customize your own jungle adventure. I had met someone from Chaa Creek a few years ago at a travel trade show and had been staring at their promotional disc for years, waiting for the day I’d get to Belize so I could stay there. After checking in to our private thatched cottage, we met with the concierge to organize the activities for the following day. Many are included in your stay, but a few such as horseback riding and canoeing carry a small surcharge.

What comes to mind when you think of Belize? For most, this country evokes images of turquoise waters, mist-shrouded mountains, lush tropical rainforests, Mayan ruins, and vibrant colors everywhere.

Picture Book Setting

The cottages are very clean and comfortable, mine had an outside shower. The cottages are similar in style to the luxury private game reserves surrounding Kruger National Park, in South Africa. Everything is open air concept, no air conditioning ….but really it is not necessary with the high altitude. There were two ceiling fans and a floor fan in my cottage but I did not turn them on. The restaurant is lovely and the service and food was great.

An unexpected gem in Belize

We came to Belize with our 3 kids, 7, 10 and 12 to get off the beaten path. We had no plans or reservations and wanted to go with what grabbed us. Normally we try to avoid places like this but in Belize they are the norm. We decided to try Lodge at Chaa Creek based on the reviews. We arrived unannounced in the pouring rain and were treated as if they had spent all day waiting for us.

On a scale of one to five, we give Chaa Creek a six

For us, one thing really stood out at Chaa Creek: The owners of this dazzlingly attractive resort have mastered the art of drawing out the best in people, wonderfully evidenced by the attitude seen in their staff – all drawn from the local population – some of whom have worked at Chaa Creek for over 28 years. Every employee we engaged with went out of their way to be friendly, positive, helpful, and knowledgeable.

If you want to relax and get away from it all, but still have 5-star quality service, The Lodge at Chaa Creek is for you. We felt like we were leaving family when our time at …

Beautiful Belize Eco Resort

My husband, another couple and I came inland to Chaa Creek during our 11-day stay in Belize. We started and ended in Caye Caulker, had planned on staying inland at Chaa Creek only 2 nights and, after being at Chaa Creek for about 2 minutes, decided to extend our stay an extra night. We stayed at the Camp Casitas, which is probably the best value for your money in Belize – if you understand ahead of time that you (as …

If you are going to Belize then your experience will not be complete unless you spend some time in the jungle. Chaa Creek is the best of the best when it comes to resorts in the Cayo district. The tree house cabana in which we stayed was fabulous. It was very roomy, clean, had a spectacular deck that included a hot tub and overlooked the Macal river. We happened to be there during a winter cold …

A Trip Report on Belize, Central America

My husband, 21 year old son and 17 year old daughter just came back from Belize. Despite the weather we had a fabulous time. A few observations first: We were all impressed at how nice and smart the Belizian’s were and while we had overcast -damp weather and no sun every day, it never interfered with our excursions- thankfully. So here is our daily itinerary:
Day 1-
We flew direct on Continental from Newark, NJ to Belize …

perfect get-a-way-history,culture,wildlife, and a gorgeous setting

From the moment we were met at the airport by Darren, everything about our stay at Chaa Creek was perfect. Our casita was wonderfully designed, with an emphasis on privacy and natural beauty. The dining room was open, yet cozy and every member of the staff was attentive.

REVIEW FROM JULY 2003 STAY:
I’m posting this after the fact but there aren’t many reviews and we think very highly of this place. Macal River Jungle Camp is a subsidiary of Chaa Creek, located a mile or so away on the Macal River. The setting is gorgeous and very “jungly” – we saw iguanas, tarantulas, motmots, toucans, aracaris, and parrots from our hammocks. The tent-cabins are sweet, spread out around a clearing in the jungle …

I just came back from Belize. I chose to spend the first half of my trip in the jungle and the 2nd half on the coast at Placencia. The stay at Chaa Creek was more memorable. The lodgings were incredibly comfortable. Large king size bed, 2 sink vanity and 2 shower head shower room. An outdoor shower with a veranda for 2 hammocks. The attitude of the staff was great. We visited 2 Maya sites, …

We loved staying here for our Belize honeymoon

This is a beautiful eco-lodge where you will feel like you are in the middle of the rainforest. We stayed in the cottage room and it was beautiful! The room and bathroom are very spacious and beautifully decorated. We also enjoyed cocktails and dinners on our private balcony. It was like having a jungle symphony every night. We could hear howler monkeys, birds and cicada bugs (which sound like loud crickets). The food in the restaurant is amazing.

Spent 6 nights in Chaa Creek at the beginning of May….and loved it! We had four nights in the Spa villa and 2 nights in a Treetop Suite, with the rest of our party staying in Orchard Villa. As a large party (11 people), we were treated amazingly by the staff at Chaa Creek. They were always courteous and made sure that we were enjoying ourselves! When one of the party was ill, one of the staff went out of …

Truly a Gem:
Chaa Creek was the most amazing place ever. It was in the middle of the jungle but still had all the modern amenities. So many activities on site to do. We mountain biked to the ruins. Definitely needed a few more days to really enjoy what Chaa has to offer!
