the grounds are meticulously maintained, and the staff go above and beyond the call of duty, always genuinely happy to help with anything you could ask them. Most noteworthy is Doceo and family running the river camp with care and compassion for the people and the land, it was a real pleasure to spend our Delicious home cooked meals with... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Macal River Camp in early January and greatly enjoyed our time here. The casita was spacious and clean. The beds were remarkably comfortable, as we were expecting a more rustic experience. We were pleasantly surprised! The bathrooms were sufficient and had flush toilets and got water in the showers. The camp's... More

Our stay at the Lodge at Chaa Creek for 4 days was undoubtedly the most amazing part of our trip. Everything about this unique lodge was wonderful. The accommodations were spectacular and more that... More

Mick and Lucy Fleming have created a wonderful atmosphere combination of luxury and comfort. Luxury in the friendly service, good food, beautiful and natural surroundings. Comfort in the large and airy rooms, well appointed bathrooms, and lovelly furninshing. The art and artifacts are beautifully chosen to represent both local culture and global travel.

Mario the chef never once disappointed any of us.The story of this lodge is best heard... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Chaa Creek for our honeymoon. The Lodge itself was incredibly beautiful and meticulously managed. Our room was unbelievable. I highly recommend the treetop jacuzzi suite! For the most part, the staff was amazing. There were a couple of fees that we wish they had waived for us due to the high amount of... More

Our family (kids ages 8 and 10) traveled to Belize from Dec. 18-Jan. 3rd and spent four nights at Chaa Creek over NYE. After a long 3 hour trip from the beach and one car sick kid, we arrived in paradise! The grounds are absolutely gorgeous and our Cottage Room was perfect for our family of 4. The kids felt... More

Have been planning to visit Ix Chel and Chaa Creek for many years, having read Rosita Arvigo's book Sastun. In spit of what looked like constant rain in the weather predictions, there was intermittent and lovely rain, interspersed with sun and altogether a wonderful time. The reception was wonderful, and we had an absolutely fabulous time, walking the medicine trail... More

We stayed in one of the cottages, #26 I believe. The staff was wonderful, extremely friendly and helpful in any way possible. All the on site activities were very well coordinated and... More

The cottages are roomy and as depicted in their pictures. Everything was clean. The service is beyond excellent and the people are warm and friendly. Every effort was made to accommodate us. We stayed on their Christmas vacation package. The package included two excursions. Every aspect of these trips was coordinated completely and efficiently. We found the food in the... More
