Chaa Creek, Belize, Central America
A Rainforest Wedding to remember
A tropical rainforest wedding next to a jungle river in Belize with the Maya Mountains for a backdrop? Your honeymoon spent in tranquil luxury in one of the Caribbean’s finest resorts, followed by a champagne breakfast and massage in an exquisite hill top spa? Reciting your vows in front of a magnificent Maya ceremonial temple as parrots fly overhead?
Dream on… or start making plans with Chaa Creek’s friendly wedding coordinator.
In response to incredibly positive feedback from couples who opted for a tropical rainforest wedding, The Lodge at Chaa Creek is now offering luxurious yet affordable wedding packages, and after relatives in the US asked us about them, we offered to check them out.
“After seeing how wonderful the weddings here went, and because more people were asking for them, we put together these packages to give couples more choice in planning the perfect tropical wedding,” Ms Duran said.
“We now have three all inclusive wedding packages – The Rainforest Wedding Vacation Package, The Butterfly Wedding Vacation Package, and the new Maya Wedding Vacation Package, which features a beautiful ceremony at one of several ancient Maya ceremonial sites.”
All Chaa Creek wedding vacation packages include a personal wedding coordinator who will arrange a civil or religious ceremony, wedding cake, bride’s bouquet and groom’s boutonniere, champagne for the wedding toast, a professional photographer and photo CD, and a couple’s massage.
The Rainforest Wedding Package ceremony takes place in a lovely private setting in Chaa Creek’s lush tropical gardens, and the stunning Butterfly Wedding Package features the release of magnificent Blue Morphos, a huge, brilliantly iridescent blue local butterfly bred at Chaa Creek’s Butterfly Hill. Couples can chose from several stunning locations overlooking the Macal River Valley.
For couples wishing to be immersed in Belize’s Maya culture, the Maya Wedding Vacation Package is something very special indeed. Chaa Creek sits in the heartland of the ancient and modern Maya civilisation, with Mayan still spoken by staff members and in the nearby villages. The Maya Wedding package offers ceremonies at the nearby ancient excavated sites of Xunanthunich and Cahal Pech, or at Tunchilen, a remote unexcavated site in a beautiful rainforest setting within Chaa Creek’s 365 acre nature reserve.
Imagine the photo opportunities.
Ms Duran said that she truly enjoys working with couples and families to create unique, personalised weddings and memories they will cherish forever. “Weddings are very important in Belize, and everyone gets involved. We love making people so happy on their special day and all of Chaa Creek comes alive. It’s definitely the best part of my job.”
After our tour we even considered renewing our own vows with a second wedding ceremony in this lush jungle setting. At the very least, we’re giving it a big thumbs-up for our family. They won’t be disappointed.
