It has always been one of my most heartfelt dreams to visit the lush green of the rain forest. I go to sleep
listening to a tape of the sounds of the birds and animals of the forest, the ack,ack, of the parrots and the mournful howling of the monkeys.
The outdoors is my life, I’m a caver,mountain biker, horseback rider,and kayak-er. It would be heaven to go hiking and horseback riding on the trails of Chaa Creek. And I must admit even though I’m an outdoors girl, I also crave luxury. At Chaa Creek you can have them both. What could be more luxurious than having a spa treatment in the jungle? I couldnt think of a better way to spend my vacation than at Chaa Creek combing my passion for travel and adventure with their fine dining and ecotourism values. Another love of mine is history, you would be hard put to find earlier examples of civilization than the Mayan temples of Xunantunich, El Pilar and Tikal.
For a small country Belize seems to have many natural resources and forms of recreation. Weather it is snorkeling at the second largest coral reef in the world, or hiking through the rain forest or canoeing down the Macal River. I dont know what my chances of winning this wonderful are , but I am very, very grateful for the opportunity to try.
The owners and management of Chaa Creek must be very giving people, no wonder it is known for its hospitality.
