Chaa Creek is an exceptional resort, first rate accommodations, service & absolutely stunning scenery. We have frequented several resorts in Belize & Chaa is at the top of our list! Our second & most recent visit was exceptionally perfect. We decided to leave the peninsula for a little Cayo getaway, at check-in we were surprised with a free upgrade to... More

This was our second visit to Chaa Creek. It remained as charming and enjoyable as our first visit. We visited last year for our 25th wedding anniversary and were so drawn to Chaa Creek and Belize that we returned with our 20 year old daughter. Before we went, our daughter did not like the idea of no AC, no television... More

We stayed at the Macau River Camp for four nights. The staff was so friendly, both at the River Camp and main facility. The River Camp has a rustic, family atmosphere. We saw howler monkeys several times right above our bungalow plus many tropical birds. We also saw a tarantula and scorpion. The home-cooked breakfasts and dinners were outstanding--better than...

This resort is hands down one of the most fabulous hidden gems. We spent three days at chaa creek prior to sailing for a week. The jungle lodge is fabulous. The accommodations are truly beautiful. The grounds are perfectly manicured and the staff is top notch. The activities are endless: cave tubing, zip lining, canoeing, hiking, the butterfly sanctuary and... More

We recently stayed in the Spa Villa with my parents (70+) and 2 growing children (12 & 19). My in-laws were up for camping but graciously were upgraded to a cottage because there was an event for kids happening at the camp site. The grounds were simply gorgeous, breakfasts delicious, swimming pool relaxing (though very warm) and lit up colorfully... More

This was a family vacation with two teenage boys. Chaa Creek was perfect in so many ways - peaceful, full of activities- mountain biking, horseback riding, night time jungle hike, medicinal trail, canoeing into San Ignacio. It's proximity to all of the activities is perfect- ATM ( which is a must ), Mayan ruins and cave tubing. We all loved... More

Chaa Creek is a small, intimate and wonderfully pleasant estate with individual houses that all have their own style. The atmosphere is calm and relaxed, of good standing and taste. We loved the swimming pool with its sun loungers where we would rest after our exciting and adventurous expeditions in the jungle and the bar serves the most delicious cocktails.... More

Hidden away at the end of a dusty driveway, The Lodge at Chaa Creek is a beautiful landscaped oasis. We visited for the day only and took canoes down the Macal river before being collected by hotel staff and brought back to the lodge for lunch and a lazy afternoon at the poolside. Everything about this place is relaxed, friendly,... More

We also realise that any rewarding adventure is enhanced by comfortable accommodations and excellent food. Our 23 palm thatched cottage rooms ensure a good night's sleep and delightful mornings accompanied by the sing song of a rainforest waking up, and guests can choose a Complete Garden Suite, an Orchard and Spa Villa, Macal Cottage or Tree Top Suite, all equipped with a Jacuzzi for even extra comfort. As one example, under our Chaa Creek Cares program, 10% of all accommodation revenue goes straight into environmental and social programs, and in supporting Green and community groups. We sleep better, and you will too, knowing that your stay at Chaa Creek has a positive effect on Belize and our very special pristine natural environment. Families share some of life's most cherished moments - and memories - during a Belize family vacation.
