The Lodge at Chaa Creek has recently been selected as one of the top ten resorts for the entire Central and South American region, according to this month’s Travel+Leisure Magazine, which features their annual “Best resorts in the World” awards list for 2011.
And the good news for travellers to Belize is that Chaa Creek’s partner in an all-inclusive Rainforest to Reef package, Victoria House on Ambergris Caye, was also named as one of the top ten by the magazine and its website.
Some vacationers view ecotourism with skepticism, thinking it’s merely a less fun form of travel. On the contrary, ecotourism allows adventurous souls the opportunity to learn about their environment and access it in a much fuller way than the average tourist. They are able to make exciting discoveries and leave their destination better than they found it, instead of lounging at a resort pool, complaining that no one speaks their language.
