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

A true jungle getaway offering guests a chance to experience the beautiful essence of Belize, Chaa Creek enchants with an authentic experience of wilderness made effortlessly luxurious by the property’s tropical charm.

 

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.
