If you are a nature lover, interested in archaeology, or just looking for a jungle retreat in lush surroundings, Chan Chich is your place. My sister and I booked the villa for a week looking for a Covid-safe birding vacation. We opted for the driving transport to the lodge (fabulous birding with guide Levy on the way) and the fly-out from Gallon Jug (excellent short hop to Belize City in a roomy small Cessna). We were greeted warmly, toured the grounds, and settled into our comfortable and roomy villa before enjoying the first of our thrice-daily meals included in our discovery package rate. All meals had at least three choices including vegetarian, were prepared to perfection, and cheerfully and professionally served. We were the only guests during much of our stay ( it’s low season for birding and Covid, of course) and we felt spoiled rotten. We birded at least twice a day on the trails and roads around the estate, finding a total of 140 species! Both Levy and Luis are excellent and patient guides, and birding either on foot or from the wonderful safari trucks was very fruitful. Anabella and all the lodge staff saw to all our arrangements seamlessly including booking a day trip to Lamani ruins and our airport Covid tests to get us back to the U.S. Bugs love me and I did get bitten a lot, but it’s rainy season and I knew what to expect. Levy gave us a wonderful tour of the Mayan ruins on which the lodge is built, and it was fascinating to learn the history. We also toured Gallon Jug farm with him and I am so impressed with their sustainable and socially responsible operations. From the beautiful flowers, excellent coffee in the rooms and at meals, unlimited filtered water, and local beer included in our rate, we were very pleased with our stay and were sorry to see it come to a close.

I was a part of the 8 ladies on a trip. We all live in the Corozal area so staying in Belize was a priority due to Covid. Chan Chich was a perfect choice. We hired Belize VIP Transfer Services. Our driver was great and we all enjoyed the trip. It is a bush-cut road and we saw deer and turkeys on the trip. We were greeted by the lodge staff with a refreshing allspice drink and shown to our casitas. The rooms are comfortable with everything you will need. The staff are all very professional and make you feel like you are the most important client they have. I do plan to retrun/

We were 8 ex-pat women staying 3 days and 2 nights. With the abundance of natural plants and scenery, no one missed the TVs. The meals were elegant and delicious and always included dessert. The room with the mosquito nets also included a mini fridge and coffee maker and fans. We didn't notice bugs but did see foxes, white tail deer and turkeys wandering the grounds, spider monkey's came down for fruit on the ground and we heard howler monkeys. Some of us spent time at the pool, which also had a jacuzzi. The horseback riding was done professionally with helmets and we rode through mango groves and along jungle paths. The farm tour included a stop at the coffee roaster, the salsa kitchen, plaintain grove, chicken coop, cattle. On the night safari, we saw noctural birds, possum, lots of deer, but didnt see any big cats. The staff was professional, very helpful and fun and we all felt very pampered. I would go back again!

Chan Chich Lodge must be one of the most special and beautiful places I have ever visited in my life. I feel very lucky to have been able to spend a whole extraordinary week there. Due to Covid, I was afraid this trip would never happen, but I am convinced it was worth the wait...two postponements over the course of a six month period! I came with one of my best friends, and I speak for her as well when I say every aspect was wonderful. We had amazing service from Anabella, Levy, Emil, Mikey, Ronda, and Louis. (Please forgive any misspellings of names!) First, I recommend the Ranger pick-up from the Belize City Airport (BZE). Levy was an excellent driver and gave us lots of information about the Belize people, history, culture, geography, and incredible bird life. It was fun to look out the window and get a feeling for this lovely country. I am a huge bird lover, and Chan Chich was a perfect place for me! My friend and I enjoyed birding excursions with Louis, who seemed to know every single bird and could spot them from what seemed to be impossible distances! We also enjoyed day trips to Lamanai and Xunantunich, also with drivers (Levy and Louis) who enhanced our trips with interesting conversation and information. We loved our Deluxe Cottage with its beautiful pictures of macaws, giant bathroom with wonderful smelling products, and comfortable beds. Note: there are fans (floor and ceiling) but NO a/c. Chan Chich truly lives up to its eco standards! I was a little worried about no a/c, but it turned out that the evenings actually cooled down, and we slept very well. One huge advantage to the lack of a/c was that we were awakened to a chorus of birds chirping. Furthermore, I'd like to say that the food and drinks were exceptional and often personalized. For example, after the chef found out I love corn, I found extra corn in some of my meals, and when our lovely server Ronda found out how excited we were to eat the local mangos and papayas, she was kind enough to bring us more every day. It was pretty quiet while we were there, which meant we had the chance to get to know all the exceptional staff. It felt very personal, which we will never forget. Just one thing: do not come here if you need a/c, fast WiFi, TV sets, etc. It's not that kind of place; it's an escape from such noise. And be prepared for bugs. There are some bad ones (doctor flies), but it's the jungle, and the bugs are our neighbors there, too.
