  • The museum is interesting, with information about local species and some Mayan history. The most fun is the butterfly room where butterflies land on you and we learned about their breeding project.

  • Highly recommend!!! If you want a truly amazing experience, this is where you need to stay. I just can't say enough. The staff were so friendly and informative, I feel like I have a new Belizean family ❤️ And the food and drinks are top notch!! I will definitely come back with more family and friends to share this incredible place!! Thanks to everyone for such a wonderful and beautiful stay.
  • Learning of the incredible history of the owners into current day alone was a wonderful discovery and experience for me on this trip. I have been to Chaa Creek Lodge on multiple occasions over the years of my visits to Belize. I just can't get enough. In addition to the beautiful resort property, their spa, butterfly farm, excellent dining, tours (check out the night hike tour) and the excellent variety of accommodations, Chaa Creek is located near Xunantunich which is a must see in my opinion. I would also check out the town of San Ignacio too for an introduction into the local culture. In the past I have stayed in one of their traditional casitas. They are still my preference for an authentic Belize experiential visit, but this time I was in one of the new excellent modern accommodations. You cant make a wrong decision. It's a matter of personal preference. The food and service have always been excellent. I will go back many more times, I am certain. It is a Belize resort favorite of mine.
