Chaa Creek is such a beautiful place to stay and has so many awesome activities right from the property. My girlfriend and I canoed down the Macal River and that was a really great time. We also visited Xunantunich, which is a very short drive from the lodge. In addition, I got a look at almost every room since I... More

Emil was so informative at the nature center and Eric was a walking encyclopedia on Medicinal Plants. Ricky was outstanding and his Maya knowledge as well as infinite knowledge of flora and... More

It was my first exceptional experience in another country.The food was absolutely wonderful at the dining area (a bit expensive, but well worth the money). All juices were freshly squeezed. Every single meal was prepared hot... More

We stayed at the Lodge as a family, in three rooms. The staff was very helpful in everything we asked, including meal changes, local tours and poolside drink service - Marco, the bar tender, is very eager to please! Rooms are very comfortable and spacious, and the hammocks on the deck are a great way to spend some time. The... More

This was the trip of a lifetime!!! My boyfriend and I went with my mom, sister and a family friend. We rented the Orchard Villa, there was plenty of room for all of us, the suite could easily sleep 8 people. The suite was spacious and airy. There is a separate seating area and dining room. The restaurant was WONDERFUL!!!... More

Clean air, clean food, and amazing service. Chaa Creek has the best staff, from the educated chef on gluten free foods to the highly educated staff and guides. Most of the staff have advanced degrees in their field and it shows in their passion when they accompany you to the area sites. We loved the trek to Tikal and canoeing... More
