Enchanting nature retreat tucked away in a lushly forested valley, offering great opportunities for outdoor adventure.

The Lodge at Chaa Creek is a delightful jungle hideaway owned by an Anglo-American couple. It is set deep within a valley, in a large private area blanketed in lush rainforest, close to the picturesque Macal River. The atmosphere is extremely peaceful and relaxing, and service is exemplary.

The accommodation is particularly attractive for families, with thatched cottages and villas scattered throughout the grounds, offering space and privacy.

You can relax by the infinity pool surrounded by flower-filled gardens or in the blissful spa, but if any members of your family are inclined to explore there are plenty of organised activities led by naturalist guides. Choose between a canoe trip down the river, horse riding, mountain biking, nature trails and a tour of the butterfly farm. Other adventures include bird watching, canopy ziplining, cave canoeing or even an overnight excursion to visit the Mayan ruins at Tikal in neighbouring Guatemala.

Your stay at Chaa Creek includes a contribution to the good causes of Chaa Creek Cares, a social and environmental initiative supporting various projects including summer camps for local kids, scholarships, clean-up campaigns and conservation.
