People Along The Way

People we meet along the way are my favorite aspect of travel. Last year we spent Christmas in paradise camping in the jungle at the Macal River Camp. With our sons at the ages of 18 and 21, we weren’t sure how many more family vacations we would have with them. We wanted to make it a special Christmas and felt our best gift to them would be a greater sense of this big blue planet. So we chose Belize and specifically Chaa Creek.

Family Adventure Travel

This relatively unknown and definitely unspoiled Caribbean paradise packs more variety within its 174 mile length and 68 mile width than most countries four times as large. Imagine having a tropical island holiday swim in the morning, and spend that evening listening to howler monkeys in a jungle hideaway. The next day you could leisurely explore ancient Maya ruins, and still enjoy a Caribbean snorkel back at the sandy beaches before sundown. And that’s only the first two days!

Fantastic Family Vacation

My husband, 14 and 10 year old daughters stayed 7 nights in the casitas. We were joined by another family with similarly aged kids. We loved staying in the “camp,” although it is really not camping, more like a cabin with a canvas roof. There were beds, linens and a porch with a hammock and chairs. It could be noisy at night, but that was from geckos, howler monkeys, cicadas and an occasional possum, all …

Belize Vacation Sweepstakes (Essay#17)

The current temperature is: 80 degrees F. All I could think about was that warm 80 degrees. How awesome! In sharp contrast to the freezing temperatures of the States that is paradise! Then I thought about the Blue Morpho Butterfly Farm, hiking through the …

We just returned from a truly fantastic stay at Chaa Creek. At the risk of overinflating expectations, I really cannot say enough wonderful things about this lodge and the friendly, helpful people that work there. We were taking a family trip, with our two young children (2 and 5). So I will tailor this review to families. That being said, while we were there we saw retirees, honeymooners, couples,groups of girlfriends on a ladies trip, other families – and everyone …
