Chaa Creek Expedition

Travel to one of Belize’s first eco-resorts on this 3-night pre- or post-cruise land tour. Chaa Creek offers a jungle experience within a 400-acre private nature preserve paired with the casual luxury of gardens and villas.

Relax in the eco-friendly infinity pool or in palm-thatched cottages featuring private verandas designed to integrate the beauty of the jungle. Explore the onsite rainforest reserve, natural history center, butterfly exhibit, morning bird walk, Maya medicinal plant trail, and more.

Chaa Creek is located in the “heartland of the Maya” along the banks of the Macal River—prime for canoeing, horseback riding, nature walks, and access to Mayan temples and cave excursions. Chaa Creek’s “wildly civilized” setting and commitment to sustainable practices celebrate the beauty of Belize.
