Statement from The Lodge at Chaa Creek: Belize COVID-19 Update

Last Updated May 21, 2020

Chaa Creek Belize COVID19 Updates

As Belize remains COVID-19 FREE since April 13th, 2020, and as we prepare to open, Chaa Creek will continue to offer the personalized service and care that our guests have become accustomed to over the last four decades. The health, safety and wellbeing of our workforce, and visitors has always been our top priority and that preference is now more important than ever before.

In order to offer the highest measures of safety during these unprecedented times, we have appointed a Health and Safety Officer who will be responsible for the execution of our government approved guidelines and implementation processes. He will facilitate mandatory professional training workshops for all employees prior to Chaa Creek’s opening and will conduct on-going oversight throughout our regular days of business.

Fortunately, our 400 acres of private nature reserve with 10 miles of mapped and well-maintained forest trails makes social distancing actively easy. On-site nature guides will acquaint our guests with Mother nature’s bounty as they show you her riches by foot, horseback or RTV. With one acre of fresh air per person, just hammocking, watching the wildlife around you, and breathing - is enriching and invigorating.

Licensed naturalist guides who conduct our tours and airport transfers will practice safe distancing, enhanced cleaning, disinfection and hygiene. Our Guests can be assured of a safe and secure journey with an eclectic mix of adventures from the time they arrive at our international airport until they depart for home with a bright new bag filled with lifelong memories.

We miss you so much and look forward to having you with us once again, soon!

Sincerely, Mick and Lucy Fleming – Chaa Creek’s Founders
