Set along the banks of the Macal River and reaching towards the foothills of the Maya Mountains, Chaa Creek has provided unique adventure travel experiences for thousands of visitors looking for an in-depth yet civilized Belizean vacation, with a focus on Belize’s ecology and natural history as well as a vibrant, varied culture that includes the rich Maya civilization and impressive archaeological sites.
The Cottage Collection
These individually designed palm thatched cottages are furnished with a tasteful, casually elegant mix of hand crafted furniture, fine fabrics and local and international art, all designed to blend in with the exquisite rainforest surroundings and local culture. Chaa Crekk strives to have their cottage interiors compliment the natural beauty of the jungle surroundings. The spacious cottage rooms all feature private sundeck verandas from which to enjoy the soothing sights and sounds of the rainforest, and dazzling hummingbirds are frequent visitors.
Garden Suite & Garden Jacuzzi Suite
For those guests looking for that extra bit of jungle luxury, Chaa Creek is proud to offer our stunning Garden Suite, or the even more sumptuous Garden Jacuzzi Suite. These lovely suites can be rented separately or together as the Complete Garden Suite Package.

Macal River Camp Casitas
The Macal River Camp has been designed for outdoors people who enjoy rustic accommodations in a remote setting, and does not provide electricity.

Comfortable beds with clean linens, pillows, towels and blankets and hygienic and environmentally safe bathrooms and showers are all provided, and the large thatched palapas is very comfortable for dining, playing games and socialising.

A fully screened sitting room looks out on lush tropical gardens and our orchard overlooking the Macal River Valley.
