As the leader of a field biology class in Costa Rica, the purpose of my visit to Chan Chich was some quality time in the rainforest to improve my jungle skills and reflect upon field activities. Chan Chich was perfect. With nearly 10 miles of trails and many more miles of rustic roads through the rainforest, I was in the...

A wonderful place to visit. Our family loved Chan Chich. Everything about it was first class - the accommodations, the service... and the setting was spectacular - magical actually .

As other reviewers have noted, Chan Chich is a magical place, cited in a Mayan plaza, surrounded by buried temples, and abounding in birds and other wildlife. Staff is, on the whole, friendly, helpful, and eager to fulfill special requests. The guides are great, highly adept at spotting hidden critters that would have been otherwise invisible to our untrained eyes....

My son and I spent 4 nights at Chan Chich in February, and I couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. The accommodations, service, food, and grounds were terrific. Our main focus was birding, and the sightings on site met or exceeded our expectations. The guides were wonderful. I will try to make it back one day.

It's very easy to see why this lodge has so many regulars that return year after year. It's been in business for quite a while and is run very well. We really liked the design of the cabanas in a semi circle around the main lodge building, all within beautiful grounds amongst the jungle. The cabanas themselves are really very...

The rooms were so comfortable and felt like an extension of the jungle just beyond the porch. We enjoyed the colorful turkeys and the parrots just outside our room. The staff members were always friendly, helpful and just as excited as we were when we reported wildlife sightings. Being in the middle of Mayan ruins made this a special location.

This is an amazing resort. Built on the Plaza of a Mayan Temple on the plantation of Gallon Jug. There are miles of walking trails and so many birds to see. Wake up to the spider and howler monkeys in the trees. Watch hummingbirds feed while eating outside for your meals. The staff was wonderful and truly like working there....

The Chan Chich Lodge sits amidst Mayan mounds and features a beautiful garden setting. We are birders and the species just in the lodge area was impressive--including trogons. The staff is friendly. they welcomed us warmly and waved us off with smiles as we departed. The deluxe room had all the usual amenities and more. Loved hearing the howler monkeys...

We spent 9 nights at Chan Chich Lodge over Christmas and New Years this year (2012/2013). It was one of our best holidays ever. The staff is helpful and friendly.
