There's plenty that's good about this resort, but in the interest of space, I'll focus on the unexpected disappointments. For context, I'm a professional ecologist who has traveled/lived extensively in developing countries and loves both gritty backpacking and luxury travel. I worked in international conversation & sustainable development before academia. My husband and I went to Chaa Creek for our...

My family and I have made several visits to Chaa Creek over the years. Though we live in San Ignacio, not too far from the Lodge, stepping onto the winding pathways of Chaa Creek always feels like a vacation miles from home.

The facilities, pool, grounds etc are fantastic and the resort has the luxury cottages and then the more rustic casitas in two different areas. We stayed in the casitas which was a great experience and our daily rate included breakfast and dinner. Dosio (the casitas manager) did an excellent job of helping make our trip very special. ....be aware there...

As the Founding Director of The Belize Zoo, I have had the opportunity to watch Chaa Creek grow and evolve over the past thirty years.

We enjoyed this magical place nestled in the Belizean rainforest so much that we have promised ourselves another encounter next year. Our favourite time sitting on the veranda at the spa villa accommodation and absorbing the jungle as the mist rose from the valley early in the morning. The seclusion of the accommodation made us feel as if we were...

Was just here 12/15/15 & we had excellent tours but terrible experience with deception and misrepresentation of the Chaa Creek management & owners about pricing and cost.

I had very little knowledge of what I was walking into when I came to Chaa Creek. My sister booked the trip and I left everything up to her. She said we were going to camp in the jungle and that is exactly what we did! It was absolutely amazing! I LOVE the 10 min walk through the jungle to...

My husband and I travel extensively and one of our best trips ever has been to Chaa Creek in the Belize jungle. Everything about Chaa Creek is extraordinary from the gorgeous grounds to the beautiful rooms to the delicious meals to the incredible service. This resort is a "bucket list" and we hope to return many times.
