The Lodge at Chaa Creek

The Lodge at Chaa Creek is Belize's premier jungle resort. This stunning property is located on 365 acres set on the banks of the Macal River. There are miles of horseback riding trails, biking and hiking trails cut through the pristine jungle.  This entire area is a birders paradise with toucans, hummingbirds, woodpeckers, laughing falcons and hundreds more bird species.

Unlike many other lodges that all share the same area and attractions, Chaa Creek is very much in a world of its own. Chaa Creek gives back:  10% of all room revenue goes back into the environment, education and community programs. 

There is so much to do at Chaa Creek, you may want to extend your stay!


Turneffe Island Resort, Turneffe Atoll

Turneffe Island Resort is located on Turneffe Atoll. The diving and snorkeling on this atoll near the second largest barrier reef in the world boast some the best dive and snorkel sites in Belize.

This well appointed property has air conditioning, a swimming pool, and offers dive and snorkel trips, use of kayaks, Hobie Cats, horseshoes, volley ball games, a spa and relaxing.  The beaches are well kept -- so think white sand beaches, azure water, palm trees in paradise!
