The Lodge at Chaa Creek – Belize’s Destination Within The Destination

With an impressive selection of eco-luxe accommodations and amenities nestled within a 400-acre private nature reserve, a wide range of exciting activities and tours, an excellent onsite restaurant, and much more, The Lodge at Chaa Creek has earned a worldwide reputation as Belize’s “Destination within the Destination”.

 For over thirty-five years Chaa Creek has balanced stunning natural beauty with an environmentally friendly built environment, offering discerning travellers a wide selection of lodgings from the rustic Macal River Camp to the luxurious Ix Chel Rainforest Villas.

Miles of well-maintained trails crisscross the surrounding forest alive with Belize’s colourful flora and fauna, and over 70 ancient Maya archaeological sites – perfect for horseback riding, birding, and guided or self-guided nature walks. Canoeing and tubing down the tranquil Macal River offer rare opportunities to experience Belize’s beautiful riverine environment.

In addition to creative farm-to-table cuisine and fresh Caribbean seafood at the Mariposa Restaurant and Jungle Lounge, guests enjoy professional care at the internationally renowned Hilltop Spa and access to a fully serviced conference centre that is also available for board games and other rainy-day activities.

Further afield, Chaa Creek Expeditions offers informative tours across Belize, with expeditions to ancient Maya archaeological sites including the sprawling metropolises of Caracol and Tikal, as well as the Maya ceremonial caves at Actun Tunichil Muknal, and other natural and cultural attractions.

Our all-inclusive Belize vacation packages offer exceptional value, and Rainforest and Reef packages with our partner resorts on the Caribbean coast, cayes and Belize’s Great Barrier Reef offer a seamless, comfortable way to combine exciting inland adventures with a picture-perfect Caribbean beach holiday.

And with a number of exciting, complimentary activities included in the daily room rate, and no charge for young guests under the age of 18 who share their parents’ accommodations, a Chaa Creek vacation is satisfyingly affordable.

Guests also sleep better knowing that one out of every ten dollars they spend on accommodation goes directly into environmental and community projects under the Chaa Creek Cares initiative. We’re proud that our commitment to sustainable tourism was recognised by National Geographic with first place honours at the 2017 World Legacy Awards held in Berlin.

Since 1981, Chaa Creek’s combination of exhilarating activities, casually elegant amenities and attentive yet unobtrusive service have provided a memorable Belize vacation for families, couples, groups and individuals of all ages and interests while helping to support Belize’s environment and local communities.
