My wife and I stayed at Chan Chich in the spring of last year. I had traveled extensively in Central America but never in Belize so we booked a trip to spend some time in the beach (we were at the Victoria House in San Pedro) and some in the jungle. We planned the trip around availability at Chan Chich since we were so excited about their property and the chance to see big cats. The only room that was available was the villa which we snapped up immediately and started to dream of our stay.
The flight in was easy and scenic and the ride to Chan Chich was interesting (going from Gallon Jug) to the jungle as your near the lodge. The villa was fantastic, included two bedrooms, a/c and your own private hot tub and golf cart. We loved it. The main lodge was great as well. We enjoyed flipping through the books with the jaguar pictures and each meal (my wife still talks about the lava cake).
Each day, we did several hikes in search of a puma or jaguar by foot. We also went horseback riding, fishing and on the night drive. No big cats, but being in the jungle was wild and informative. The numbered points of interest on the trails were great as well.
We will be back (as soon as possible).
