Chaa Creek was a fabulous way to end our Belizian Vacation! From the bird walks in the morning to the night walk our family took advantage of all Chaa Creek had to offer. The horseback riding was the best!! Great staff and approachable owners topped it all off.

Very nice place to stay. The rooms and beds are quite nice. I can't think of any thing negative during our stay at Chaa Creek. Everyone was so helpful and polite. All things given, this was a great few days we had while staying there.

Chaa Creek Lodge has a variety of accommodations. We stayed in the economical tent camp. The camp has wood framed tents that each have a porch with hammock, and kerosene lamps for light. The camp itself has a host and cook and breakfast and dinner are provided and eaten under an open pavilion. Tents have between two and four beds...

Came to Chaa Creek with a group of 13. We were picked up at the airport in Belize City and transfered to Chaa Creek by Miguel. He talked to us about Belize and wildlife all the way to Chaa Creek. It took about 2 hours, but he kept us well entertained with his stories. Upon arriving, we went to check...

The total experience was wonderful. The staff ensures that your stay will be the best possible experience. You have to remember where you are and that nature can not be completely controlled. We spent one night at the lodge and two nights at the river camp. Both were excellent. The Lodge restaurant service and food where amazing. Our guide for...

Upon checking in and waiting for the camp manager to pick us up from the main lodge, we were introduced to quite a few employees at which I was a little confused but learned why at the end of our stay. Chaa Creek is not only a lodge but all of its staff are a family and they invite you...

Every positive thing you've read about the camp and especially Dosio and his family are true. At Maccal River Camp you are not just treated to an authentic jungle experience but also a cultural experience. I loved getting to know all of the folks that work at Chaa Creek. Our cabin was a little slice of heaven (although my husband...

We booked three nights in the camp with a view to trying it out and upgrading to the lodge if necessary. We found it utterly magical. The sound of the birds, the howler monkeys, the jungle humming at night. You really can't imagine how amazing it is. The lodge itself has no air con (as it is an eco lodge)...

I loved everything about this resort. The staff, the food, the rooms, the pool, the canoes, the wildlife, the help with booking different exertions everything was incredible. The staff does everything they can to accommodate you and ensure that you enjoy your stay. My boyfriend absolutely loved their tortillas and jokingly asked our waiter if he could buy a bunch....

Stayed in the casitas and took advantage of everything else the lodge had to offer. Met wonderful people, totally taken care of. Flawless and very economical. Highly recommend. Casitas are managed by a Belizean family. 2 wonderful meals are included in the 65$ price. Arranged trip to Barton Creek cave, Chaa Creek provided a wonderful guide and we ended up...

“We occupied four different units. Each was unique and yet similar. They were attractive, comfortable , individual and had luxurious attached bathrooms. I cannot say which was best. Our room--the grand-parents-- was our favorite (#19), of course. The sounds of the birds, howler monkeys, and other night life seemed especially exotic. I suppose it could be disturbing, though. ”
