Escape to the jungle in a 400-acre private nature reserve.

From an overgrown citrus orchard to a fledgling farm, Mick and Lucy Fleming’s Chaa Creek journey began with no road access to the land, equipped with only a rented dugout canoe to transport the produce to local markets. Arriving a couple of years later, an old tractor from England was shared with neighbors who had not only assisted them throughout but shared far more profound lessons about patience and truly appreciating the diversity of people and culture. This collaborative relationship is the backbone of the Chaa Creek regenerative philosophy as they proudly work with and support staff, local communities and the surrounding rainforest.

Escape to the jungle in a 400-acre private nature reserve and discover the secluded eco-luxury villas and cottages of Chaa Creek, nestled along the Macal River that meanders through western Belize. Chaa Creek continues to enchant guests with an authentic experience of wilderness made effortlessly luxurious by the property’s tropical charm.

One of the nation’s five dedicated butterfly farms, Chaa Creek’s very own Butterfly Farm offers guests the chance to witness the kaleidoscopic beauty of the insects in an intimate conservatory. The farm houses the rare Blue Morpho, one of the world’s largest butterflies, whose luminous wings reflect the tropical coast’s dazzling azure hues. Further home to the hub of local ancient Maya site knowledge and investigation, the Natural History Center, an organic farm drawing inspiration from the Maya, over ten miles of trails to hike or horse ride, countless adventures, heart-racing activities, cultural tours and captivating wildlife to explore, Chaa Creek is a true jungle getaway offering guests a chance to experience the beautiful essence of Belize.
