Don't worry, we won't leave without you if your flight is delayed or arrives very close to the departure time. We try to accommodate all passengers and ask for some consideration if we need to wait a few minutes for other passengers.

Here at the Macal River Camp you can experience nature much as the original Maya inhabitants or early settlers did – with little of the distraction or noises of civilisation.... more

The Macal River Camp has been designed for outdoors people who enjoy rustic accommodations in a remote setting, and does not provide electricity.

The ten casitas, or small bungalows, are set on raised platforms and have private verandas.

Comfortable beds with clean linens, pillows, towels and blankets and hygienic and environmentally safe bathrooms and showers are all provided, and the large thatched palapas is very comfortable for dining, playing games and socialising.

However you fill your days, you’ll welcome a hearty home cooked dinner and cold drink on your return before relaxing around the campfire or in a hammock on your own private veranda with a good book, or just listening and watching as the jungle night unfolds.

The walk above the Macal River to the fascinating Maya Medicinal Plant Trail is beautiful, and other hiking, birding and mountain biking possibilities are, well, endless.

Chaa Creek’s highly regarded stables are also within hiking distance, or we can bring the horses to you. Whichever means of rustic transport you choose, keep your eyes open for peccaries, armadillos, monkeys, toucans, parrots and a host of other exotic animals inhabiting the rainforest.

Within easy hiking distance are Chaa Creek’s world famous Butterfly Farm, Natural History Centre, and scheduled day tours to the impressive Maya pyramid at Xunantunich, and the huge ancient Mayan Ruins of Caracol and Tikal.

While vehicle traffic into the camp is restricted, we cater to special needs.

Breakfast & dinner is included in the price. Also, you get complimentary on-site activities such as early morning guided birdwatching, hiking, access to our Maya medicinal plant trail, butterfly farm, natural history centre and canoeing on the macal river.
