How we loved this lodge. We were the only guests end October. It was very quiet and the staff were friendly and so sweet to us. Loved the room, the cabanas, the pool and jacuzzi, and the walking trails. Total freedom at this lodge, it was fun trying to stop the jaguar and puma every morning along the main road...

Hola! Thank you for celebrating the peaceful and tranquil atmosphere of Chan Chich Lodge in the Selva Maya of Belize where relaxation, nature and mysticism become a reality. Yes, wildcats are elusive, but they surprisingly appear when you least expect it, which is an excellent incentive to trek through our 9 miles of trail to increase the probabilities to spot...

A few years ago, I visited Chan Chich Lodge. The magic, mystery and beauty were surreal. Picture yourself swimming in a luxurious pool, beneath a canopy of trees, in the heart of a jungle, amongst ancient Mayan ruins, listening to the howler monkeys crying in the distance and looking up see a variety of beautiful tropical birds swooping through the...

Best Lodge, great rooms, Maya plaza is amazing. We had the nicest stay here, the personnel is really friendly and the tours are great. The surroundings, middle of the jungle, provide rest and excitement. Perfect for a nature lover.

Perfect service, nice and experienced guides, good food and beautifull wildlife! Nice spacious cabins with the best showers and there is a musquito proof swimmingpool. Even though there had just been a hurricane they went out of there way to let us enjoy our stay.

Heaven on earth. The best part of the jewel..for those seeking an inland adventure. I strongly recommend the gallon jug /chan chich experience at least once in a person's life. The staff are wonderful .....animals were gracious hosts...and the food and rooms were exquisite.

It took almost 4 hours to get to Chan Chich, but it was so worth it! This lodge is definitely on top of my list as a peaceful getaway! The lodge offers a night tour, and although we didn't see any ferocious jaguars it was still exciting to see nocturnal birds and plenty deer in their natural habitat.

I have stayed at Chan Chich several times over the last 20 years and it truly is my favorite place on this planet. It is built on a mayan ruin and although you can get to it by car it is best to take a small plane to Gallon Jug. I have done both methods. I have stayed in several...

We had stayed as a family at Chan Chich on our very first trip to Belize 14 years ago and we decided, as a couple, to return again for 3 nights. We are very glad we did! This is absolutely my favourite jungle lodge experience in Belize and we have been to quite a few over the years. I strongly...

We stayed here in late March in combination with The Lodge at Chaa Creek near San Ignacio. Both lodges were very nice, but are different in so many ways that it's difficult to compare (and we're glad we did both.) Chaa Creek was a large property that was packed and bustling with guests, including children. By comparison, Chan Chich was...
