Trip Report Belize - Chan Chich Review

Jump to last reply

We just got back from our 2nd trip to Chan Chich. This time we decided to go in the wet season to see different wildlife. Here's a quick summary:

Pros:
- Snakes, lizards, and amphibians were common. We saw 12 snakes (8 different species)
- Rates are lower and the resort was uncrowded
- We got great close looks at monkeys since some trees right around the cabanas had fruit

Cons:
- It rained... a lot. Althouth, we only lost about 1.5 days total due to heavy rains. The rains did bring out lots of neat critters.
- The bugs. The mosquitoes and black flies were a nuisance. For what it is worth, the staff said that the bugs were the worst they had ever seen.

I have detailed trip reports and pictures here:

Feel free to ask any questions and I will be happy to answer them.

Alan
