Belize offers adventurous family travelers the perfect combination of luxury and rugged wilderness. Lodge at Chaa Creek, a luxury resort located in San Ignacio along the country’s western border, is the epitome of this contrast.


At Lodge at Chaa Creek, families can stay in a range of luxury accommodations, all set amid a lush tropical jungle. Personal butler service; world-class dining; and an eco-friendly, freshwater infinity pool are just some of the many ways guests are pampered during their stay. The property includes a butterfly exhibit, a natural history center, horse riding stables and a woodworking shop, so there’s plenty of fun activities for the whole family. That said, the highlight of the trip will be just steps from the front door — the 400-acre nature reserve the property sits on.


The nature reserve is perfect for hiking on your own or exploring with a guide either on foot or on horseback. To ensure guests have the ultimate experience, the resort also offers curated tours letting you explore nearby caves; visit Mayan ruins; or take a pontoon ride to Vaca Lake, a man-made reservoir just upstream from the lodge featuring stunning waterfalls.Vaca Lake is frequented by local wildlife like tapirs, ocelots and spider monkeys, along with a myriad of tropical birds.


The resort can also arrange excursions like helicopter tours to see the region by air, snorkeling excursions to explore Belize’s world-famous reefs, and fun activities like zip lining and cave tubing to get an adrenaline rush before returning to the resort to enjoy the pampering and luxury of the beautiful accommodations.
