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.
