The staff at Chaa Creek was amazing! Denise helped arrange our excursions and even got us onto a flight to our next destination. Every person who we encountered was pleasant and helpful. The property has so much to do- butterfly garden, bird watching, canoeing, tubing are just a few activities included in your stay. Our accommodations were incredible- the room was screened in, with a delightful breeze throughout our visit. We even had a beautiful surprise when we arrived, since we were traveli... Read more

Just returned from our first trip to Belize, where we spent 6 nights at the Lodge at Chaa Creek -- specifically in their Macal River Camp (before going to the coast, to Placencia). An absolutely wonderful experience, from the moment we were picked up at the airport by Daren, one of Chaa's phenomenal tour guide/drivers. We'd arranged to stop at the Belize Zoo on the way to the lodge -- highly recommended -- a great way to see up close Belize's special animals, like harpy eagles, jaguarundis, ma... Read more

We took our 10 month old baby along after reading many positive / baby friendly reviews and he was treated like royalty, the staff would call out his name, play with him and give me cuddles ...

Cha'a Creek is a truly amazing property with an eco-friendly mindset and an amenity filled venue. The grounds are impeccably kept and at night are well-lit and easy to walk. The food is excellent, being tasty and well-presented. The staff is cordial and very willing to please. Night creature walk, and morning bird walk were both good experiences. The guides are well informed and very enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge. The events scheduler very efficiently sets visitors up w... Read more

Once again Chaa impresses from the staff, the food and the options for things to do. The knowledge of the guides on staff is unparalleled. Already planning another return trip back. Can't wait to see what changes they come up with next.
