It may not be the perfect Christmas Card photo, but to me, these images from Chaa Creek in Belize look very inviting. Imagine, leaving that heavy Winter coat behind and packing your bags with shorts, sandals, a bathing suit and a lovely flowing dress. (You know we love it - we named a colorway Belize Brown after the country).
Nestled in the foothills of the Maya Mountains, along the bank of the Macal River, Chaa Creek is a 365 acre private nature reserve. It is home to a Natural History Centre, Hilltop Butterfly Farm, the Maya Medicinal Plant Trail, and an exquisite spa. The resort offers 23 palm thatched cottage rooms ~ guests can choose from a Complete Garden Suite, an Orchard and Spa Villa, Macal Cottage or Tree Top Suite. Here’s a look at a few of them:
Chaa Creek offers a number of interesting Christmas Vacation packages that include activities such as decorating the Christmas Bird Tree with seeds, fruits and treats for their colorful tropical birds, Christmas Carol singing, and a traditional Holiday meal. Also available for exploration are the area’s Ancient Mayan Temples and Palaces- an adventure of a lifetime for most of us. Hiking, horse riding, and boating down the river are all available to visitors as well.
Chaa Creek also offers interesting food and an elegant Jungle Bar. 10% of all accommodation revenue at Chaa Creek goes straight into environmental and social programs, and in supporting local Green and community groups.
