After spending days and nights searching for a better deal, I gave up Tahiti and turned to the Caribbean. The beach is still beautiful. Hotels, there were many that were very luxurious but they just weren’t exotic enough for my liking. I wanted palm-thatched rooms with elegant wooden floors and furniture – at least something like that, and the atmosphere that tells me “you’re in the Caribbean!” Since I didn’t know much about the Caribbean, I just googled images of “Caribbean villas.” There was one that looked “okay” in Belize. Belize? Where is that? I further researched the place through travel magazines and websites along with other places like Curacao, Turks and Caicos, etc. They all looked similar so I didn’t mind where I go as long as it had somewhere exotic for me to stay.
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.
Last spring break I went on an alternative spring break trip to San Ignacio, Belize with twelve other members from my school for a writing class. We came and volunteered at ProWorld for two weeks. The experience I had in those two weeks put my college years to shame. It’s different going from hopping from party to party to hopping from waterfall to river to Mayan ruin. I can tell you one thing for sure, sitting on top of Xunantunich was the most I’ve ever felt alive. An emotional void had been filled in me, and I knew that’s where my heart would reside.
I have just started benefiting from Maya Abdominal Massage that began in Belize with the ancient Mayan Culture. I have been taking herbs collected from the rainforests of Belize before they are destroyed and have seen amazing and magical results. Rosita Arvigo holds workshops at The Lodge at Chaa Creek and I would love to visit there one day and take one of her courses.
Belize is a nature lover’s paradise. Beautiful scenery, rainforests and beaches. Amazing native birds and animals. The climate of Belize is near perfect. Belize is home to wildlife reserves and sanctuaries, rivers, herbal trails, massive Mayan ruins and ancient pyramids that are still among the tallest structures in the country today, and a massive system of subterranean caves. With approximately 40 per cent of land classified as protected, the forests support a vast range of wildlife including five large cat species – margay, jaguarundi, ocelot, puma and jaguar. Bird life is also abundant with over 500 species recorded.
I wonder what it is like to wake up and know your alarm clock is a Howler Monkey. What is it like to be in a place where the morning mist rises as you strain your ears to hear the ancient Mayans whisper their secrets of the past and knowledge of the future? I wonder what it is like to be in a place where the sky scrapers were built to encourage spiritual enlightenment and not the growth of big business.
I’d like to vacation in Belize at The Lodge at Chaa Creek because I have been to Belize for one day in the past and would like to explore it’s beauty further, Spending 4 night in a cottage, exploring it’s zoo, museums trails and farms would be even better than the hammock and snorkeling I’ve done there before. I bird watch from my sunroom in the Midwestern United States but could only imagine the birds in this rainforest. The temples, caves nature reserves are calling my stress filled name.
I want and would love to vacation in Belize and at The Lodge at Chaa Creek, because Chaa Creek is an award-winning Belize Resort that was rated one of the ‘World’s Best Places to Stay’ by Conde Nast, and belize is gorgeous. I have been married for three years and my husband and I haven’t had the opportunity to go on our honeymoon. Neither have we been other places due to never having enough money left to go on a …
A Vacation to Belize’s Chaa Creek has captured my eco-minded attention! I have been a Registered Nurse for 15 years. I feel confident in helping people maintain and improve their health. My mission has been focused on the people living in this world. Unfortunately, I was oblivious to the world that people were living in.
About five years ago, I had my eyes and spirit awakened. I realized that I needed to make changes in my …
It has always been one of my most heartfelt dreams to visit the lush green of the rain forest. I go to sleep
listening to a tape of the sounds of the birds and animals of the forest, the ack,ack, of the parrots and the mournful howling of the monkeys.
The outdoors is my life, I’m a caver,mountain biker, horseback rider,and kayak-er. It would be heaven to go hiking and horseback riding on the trails of Chaa …
Why Belize? Peter and I joked about going to Belize a couple times. We would send each other pictures of Belize back and forth, commenting on how the place seemed so unreal. There were times when Peter and I would sneak out of real life to go on road trips. They were always the best; we always have the best time. I would love to take Peter to Belize because if there is anyone who deserves this trip, it is him.
“Well…”, I said, stalling for time as I thought it through, “…it means that when a 15-year old kid does not understand her own racial identity, when she’s embarrassed by her culture or doesn’t understand her culture, and when she feels discriminated against by her peers who come from a different racial group, she’s going to freeze. She’s going to live in fear.

My husband and I heard about Chaa Creek and would like nothing more than to spend our vacation with you in Belize! I was born in Argentina shortly after World War II, and since my parents moved to the US in the 1960s, I have never been able to return to Central/South America. I would like nothing more than to re-enter the vibrant Latin culture that I was raised in, if only for a short …

Belize Eco Tourism Vacation Sweepstakes Essay#5
I love to travel. I’ve been to 11 countries in my 28 years. In 2005 I spent
4 months backpacking in Central and South America, and just last year I
ended 2009 with 3 months backpacking in SE Asia. I believe that world travel
opens our minds, our hearts, and our souls. This year I am marrying the love
of my life, a man who has not had much opportunity to travel but has every
desire to. We want to …
