Incredible grounds, amazing rooms, and a world class staff. My wife and I stayed at Chaa Creek for 4 nights with the kids over spring break and had a ball. Bird watching, horseback riding, canoeing, relaxing by the pool......a very special place.

The Macal River Camp at Chaa Creek is a wonderful experience for people who are true campers. If you enjoy sleeping in a tent with all the associated lack of comfort, you will find this experience as delightful as we did. However, if you only choose to stay here as a cheaper way to access Chaa Creek, you will be... More

Our experience at Chaa was better than we could have expected! The staff and facility are excellent. The people of Belize are sincere, appreciative and proud of their country and eager to share it with visitors. Our stay at Chaa Creek will always be one of fond memories. Our guide for most of our excursions, including Mayan ruins, was Ricky.... More

One of the most relaxing places I've ever been. There is so much to do there. We stayed 4 nights and wish we had stayed all week. Excellent service, good good, beautiful rooms & grounds. I would reccomend waiting until you arrive to book adventures. They will take care of everything for you. The spa is excellent - the best... More

Last year our travel,agent picked Chaa Creek for us, a 4 night stay and we cried when we had to leave. This year we came back for 8 nights and brought our son, daughter in law and 2 grandkids 11 and 9 so they could experience this amazing place. The grounds are beautiful, accommodations wonderful, but it's really the staff... More

We stayed at the Camp casitas for three nights and had the best time! Saw so many animals, were close to all the great excursions, and best of all-the staff of the camp casitas were so friendly and accommodating! The best food was served morning and night. If we travel back to Belize it will be to stay here at... More

The combination of rain forest, tent cabins, wonderful camp hosts, food and river make the Macal River camp very special - and inexpensive (about $$55/night per person including breakfast and dinner). Howler monkeys with blood-curdling screams (after all, they're 'howlers' not 'growlers') reminded us 2-3 times a night that we were in the jungle. The tents are well screened and... More

Well worth the drive from Belize City. Chaa Lodge staff were professional, kind and proud of their beautiful country and heritage. Totally impressed with their efforts to be environmentally friendly. Thank you.

Chaa Creek is an amazing place. All the staff is friendly and professional, and proud to share the beauty of their country with visitors. Our suite was clean and comfortable. It was awesome to see a star-filled sky as we walked back to our suite after dinner and then to awake to the sounds of birds. Even better to do... More
