For over 30 years Chaa Creek has been providing a comfortable base for exciting inland adventures for thousands of visitors, from explorers, scientists, filmmakers, research groups, students and people of all ages looking for intellectual and physical stimulation in Belize’s vibrant rainforest – the heartland of the Maya.
Our private 365-acre nature reserve set along the banks of the Macal River in the foothills of the Maya Mountains is home to a number of exotic jungle dwellers including peccaries, jaguar, monkeys and many others as well as over 300 species of tropical and migratory birds. Guests are literally surrounded by one of the most pristine ecosystems in the world, and we are committed to ensuring that it remains vibrant and unspoilt for generations to come.
We also realise that any rewarding adventure is enhanced by comfortable accommodations and excellent food. Our 23 palm thatched cottage rooms ensure a good night’s sleep and delightful mornings accompanied by the sing song of a rainforest waking up, and guests can choose a Complete Garden Suite, an Orchard and Spa Villa, Macal Cottage or Tree Top Suite, all equipped with a Jacuzzi for even extra comfort. We are proud to have one of the best restaurants in Belize, and our hilltop spa and airy jungle bar ensure complete relaxation after a day filled with discovery and adventure.
And you can rest assured that a stay at Chaa Creek contributes towards sustainable and culturally responsible tourism – we’ll be happy to point out our award winning approach towards creating a green experience.
As one example, under our Chaa Creek Cares program, 10% of all accommodation revenue goes straight into environmental and social programs, and in supporting Green and community groups. We sleep better, and you will too, knowing that your stay at Chaa Creek has a positive effect on Belize and our very special pristine natural environment.
Guests can enjoy a panoramic view of the lush jungle surrounds of the Macal River Basin from the generous glass walled living room and large wrap around veranda with outdoor Jacuzzi.
Perched on the edge of a grassy knoll overlooking the sleepy Macal River, the cottage blends stylish simplicity and elegant furnishings to create a romantic ambiance in a stunning rainforest backdrop.
