Chaa Creek


This private 330-acre nature reserve set along the banks of the Macal River in the foothills of the Maya Mountains, has provided a unique rainforest experience for thousands of people while maintaining an unspoiled ambience.

Each palm-thatched cottage has Mexican tiled floors, large mahogany beds, original artwork and private bathrooms with hot showers. Spacious sundeck verandahs allow guests to view wildlife and interact with nature. 

The Macal River Jungle Camp, located within the nature reserve a half-mile down river from the lodge, features ten fully-screened casitas, each having two comfortable beds with fresh linens and a private sheltered porch for quiet relaxation and peaceful views in the undisturbed jungle habitat.
