Chan Chich Lodge is a special paradise. The grounds are set in the midst of ancient ruins and are filled with flowering trees and the sight of many colourful birds. I could easily have just sat on the balcony of the main lodge all day and just watched the parade of bird and animal life in front of me. There...

The remote location of this lovely thatched lodge was fantastic with colourful gardens of tropical flowers and exotic birds a plenty. Our room was lovely with, unexpectedly, twin basins the bathroom and even towelling robes, yet a hairdryer was for some mystifying reason not there, although one was readily provided when I asked. The guides and drivers were excellent and...

Chan Chich is outstanding in so many ways, especially regarding its wildlife! We've joined various activities with the four, very experienced guides of the lodge and it could not have been better. We saw tons of birds, surprisingly many mammals (close!), even including an Ocelot! The staff was very welcoming and polite, the rooms are simple but beautiful and clean.

This lodge is in a very beautiful setting in the plaza of unexcavated Mayan ruins surrounded by thousands of acres of protected forest. The grounds are immaculately maintained. They support many, many species of birds as well as Spider monkeys and occasional Howler monkeys. The cabanas are very clean, private and open to the sights and sounds of the forest...

We spent 2 nights at Chan Chich at the start of our honeymoon in Belize. We were kindly upgraded to a better cabana and overall arrangements were very smoothly handled. Guides were professional and knowledgeable and staff were friendly and personable. Food is tasty, if a little expensive, but all dietary requirements are well accommodated and portions are large. Saw...

We stayed three nights and fell in love with Chan Chich and Gallon Jug. The guides are the greatest asset that enabled us to fully enjoy the splendid variety of wildlife. We also appreciated touring Gallon Jug farm. To be able to go from jungle like foliage to open ranch land with spectacular vistas is the best of both worlds....

Dear Amy We’re thrilled to hear how the guides impacted your stay with us – we couldn’t agree more about the importance of interpretive guiding to enhance the forest experience! The combination of lush forest with farm and grasslands are part of what make Chan Chich and Gallon Jug so special. Hearing you call it a gem means a lot...

I have been going for several years to Chan Chich for the annual Christmas Bird Count. The birds are always a highlight, but away from that... the staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. They make you feel at home within the first five minutes. I absolutely love the fact that deer, turkeys, coatis and agoutis play in between the cabanas...
