Chan Chich Lodge has pioneered private conservation since the 1980s.

The only Belize resort nestled in 30,000 acres of wilderness, surrounded by half a million acres of conservation lands, provides what many believe to be the best wildlife-viewing opportunity in the Americas.

At Chan Chich Lodge you will experience what expeditions of past centuries set out to find: architectural wonders of the ancient Maya lost in the jungle. With an unparalleled abundance of wildlife (and the best chance to see the elusive jaguar in its natural habitat) Chan Chich is an extraordinary destination for naturalists, birders, and for those seeking an authentic retreat to the jungle.

Roughly 60% of the food served in their restaurant is organically produced on their farm and in the local community. Chan Chich is helping to save Belize’s indigenous cuisine and the heirloom crops that define it by growing native crops on their 3,000-acre organic farm.
