Stayed here for 3 days on the front end of Belize trip Pros: - located in the middle of the jungle with ruins on site & trails all around - peaceful/serene environment that is ideal for bird watching - excellent staff - large rooms - exceptional bargain Cons: - maybe a little too "rustic"? ... e.g. WiFi barely works, water...

Wonderfully expert, gracious, service-oriented staff. Very comfortable cabanas. Fine food. Excellent birding and other tours by the best, locally-informed guides we have ever experienced. Thanks to one, we saw Belize's rarest bird on day 2. Quiet and peaceful. Located picturesquely amidst an ancient Mayan city/temple site. Remote, but relatively easy to access from international airport. Good amenities all around. This... More

Everything about this lodge is perfect. The setting is gorgeous. We were in cabin #4. Close to the main lodge and the swimming pool. The room was comfortable and like all cabins had a porch with chairs and a hammock. What was exceptional was the staff. The guides. The trails and the food. Perfect if u want to get away... More

When we first decided on going to Belize, we obviously heard about the amazing beaches, the abundance of sealife and the tasty local food. However what we didn't realise was that there was another side to Belize rich in a vast array of birds and wild cats. Chan chich is truly unique - 5 miles from the guatamalan border, you... More

We visited Chan Chich in October 2013 for our honeymoon and had the best time. We were the only guests as it was low season but the weather was still great and service fantastic!! We booked our honeymoon through Kuoni and am so glad they found this place for us. The nature walks with Marvin were amazing - he knows... More

We just returned from a fantastic one-week stay at Chan Chich Loge. As birders we had this place in our sights for many years and the experience did not disappoint. The accommodations are clean, spacious and peaceful, the food is very good and the staff could not be more knowledgeable,friendly or attentive. We went birding with all four guides and... More

We stayed in early November 2015 and were upgraded to a cabana. Beautifully decorated and with all amenities. The Discovery Package allowed for a full array of activities, and while we did not see a jaguar we did spy an ocelot on a night drive. The food was so good I forced myself to eat all three meals. Portions were... More

My husband and I had a wonderful Belizean holiday in 2014, staying over Christmas at Chan Chich and over New Years at Turneffe Flats. What a great combination! Our favorite things, jungle treks and snorkeling! Chan Chich was wonderful. The trip started out a little shakily as our charter flight from the Belize airport to Chan Chich was over 90... More

I think I was here in 2000 but the pictures I have been viewing of it look exactly the same. I stayed here on a study trip while in college. Tropical Ecology was the class. This place was amazing!

This was the second leg of our honeymoon in Belize. We wish we had stayed here much, much longer! Nestled amidst ancient Mayan ruins, Chan Chich is also within a rain forest reserve. You can join group walks, talks, night viewing, or explore the trails on your own. We saw spider and howler monkeys, every bird we could have hoped... More
