The owner of the Lodge at Chaa Creek said that the eco resort’s inclusion in a recent USA Today travel guide “bucket list” is good news for the nascent Belizean tourism industry, and further proves that environmentally sustainable, Green tourism can provide a high quality travel experience. Lucy Fleming, who with her husband Mick started Chaa Creek by accepting guests at their small family farm in a remote part of Belize in 1981, said that recognition such as USA Today’s provides an important boost to the Belizean tourism industry, which since it’s relatively recent inception has struggled to achieve name recognition in the highly competitive Caribbean travel industry.
The Lodge at Chaa Creek was given another nod from USA Today by topping the popular publication’s recent list of Belize Rainforest Luxury Vacations. Chaa Creek was previously singled out by USA Today in February as being one of the world’s top family vacation spots for Spring break
The Lodge at Chaa Creek has been selected by USA Today as a great place to take the family for spring break. USA Today is a national American daily newspaper published by the Gannett Company and was founded by Al Neuharth. The newspaper vies with The Wall Street Journal for the position of having the widest circulation of any newspaper in the United States, something it previously held since 2003.
