We spent three nights at this excellent lodge. The animal sightings were exciting and the location of the lodge just breath taking. The staff are friendly, the cook excellent and the whole atmosphere is very relaxing.

My family loved the 4 days that we stayed at Chan Chich. It was a short, but beautiful, flight from the international airport, seeing the jungle from above made me eager to explore by foot once we arrived. The staff were all very friendly and engaged, guide Hilberto was an endless source of knowledge and energy, even at 72 years... More

Chan Chich is a unique jungle lodge. I'm gonna do this systematically. 1) Rooms: well built and ventilated. There are ceiling fans, which is key in the rainforest. The rooms very much reflect the rustic style of the hotel while maintaining creature comforts. I enjoy the authentic feel they provide. 2) Food: The menu is generally limited to two options... More

Arrangements were made by Audley Travel and their local agent Via Ventures for us to be collected and driven to Chan Chich from Lamanai. It was an interesting 2 - 3 hour journey passing through some of the Mennonite villages. We reached the edge of the Gallon Jug estate then continued several miles to the Lodge. On arrival we were...

We spent three nights at this very comfortable lodge. The food was good, the staff efficient & friendly. The setting is perfect, in the main plaza of an old Mayan unexcavated site. It is surrounded by thick jungle & there are sometimes sightings of Jaguars & pumas. The birdlife is prolific & there are monkeys & other creatures all around.... More
