My heart fluttered and skipped a few beats; I immediately called my fiance Matthew after reading the post on Chaa Creek facebook page in regards to The Lodge at Chaa Creek Sweepstakes. I knew that we had to submit an essay promptly since I discovered the posting only hours before the deadline. I have been very fortunate to have traveled in Central and South America. One country that I have not had the opportunity to visit is Belize. Over the years while traveling, I have met so many other like minded Eco-tourism travelers that have spoke so highly of Belize and The Lodge at Chaa Creek.
I love to travel; I enjoy birding, trekking through the rain forest searching for mammals, discovering new plants, exploring ruins of ancient civilizations, snorkeling, scuba diving, and learning about the history, culture, and meeting the people of a new country. Chaa Creek offers all of this and so much more. I also love that the Lodge offers professional naturalist birding guides to help spot the over 300 species of birds that live in Belize. I have no doubt that the Lodge at Chaa Creek will offer a professional staff for any need or question.
One experience that I have not experienced is staying in an award winning lodge that one only dreams of while reading a magazine or viewing a web-site. A place where one is in complete paradise in the forest. I would love to introduce Matthew to the joy and love I have for the rain forest at a world class resort that Chaa Creek is known world wide for. I know we would also love the Nature Center, Rainforest trails, the Creatures of the Night Walk, and the Cave tours…. Chaa Creek has so much to offer. The literature on this rresort and the second hand description of the Lodge honestly sounds like Paradise,: Heaven on Earth.
