Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year From Belize’s Chaa Creek

It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year! 


The Fleming family, managers and staff of Chaa Creek would like to wish our many friends around the world a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for a happy, healthy and fulfilling New Year.

Like most things in this multicultural paradise, Belizean Christmas celebrations are a lively combination of the familiar and the exotic. Mother Nature decorates trees with her own colourful ornaments while tropical birds fill the air with singsong carols. And although he may arrive by canoe, on horseback or four-wheel drive, children still eagerly await a visit from Santa.

Christmas Day dinners feature turkey, ham and sweet potatoes, and often with tamales, rice and beans and sometimes grilled lobster. And afterwards, a refreshing swim takes the place of a stroll through the snow.

Yes, we do things a bit differently here, but the essential things remain the same. Families catch up with each other, friendships are rekindled, and we pause from the hectic pace of day-to-day life to take the time to appreciate what’s really important.

And as we do that here at Chaa Creek, we are reminded that it’s you, our worldwide network of friends, colleagues and guests – past, present and current – who give our work meaning and make what we do so pleasurable. Helping people to connect with nature and each other, to share adventures, good times and meaningful experiences is something we take pride and satisfaction in.

And in that spirit we’d like to thank you for your continued support, comments, ideas and patronage, and to once again wish you and yours all the best in this holiday season. More than ever, we feel it important to extend that age-old wish of:

Peace on Earth, and Goodwill Towards All


Happy Holidays and all the best from all of us at The Lodge at Chaa Creek!
