What our guests are saying:

  • A perfect place to stay if you want a jungle experience. It was a great combination of a comfortable rustic cabin with hosts that made sure our stay was pleasant and that we were able to participate in all of the activities the Chaa Creek lodge has to offer.

  • Loved the River Camp at this beautiful resort. It was nice to stay away from the fancy lodge, yet still be able to visit, use the pool & restaurant. Wonderful guides for bird watching & nature tours. The camp was simple yet comfortable & good variety of guests to visit with at breakfast & dinner.

  • As a family with teenage daughters we thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Chaa Creek Camp site. We were very well looked after even with our dietary requirements. The food was simple yet delicious and plentiful. A short walk along the medicine trail to the main resort with a beautiful pool.
