Ready for a change in scenery!
It was time to leave Chaa Creek. We had five amazing days there and would return in a heartbeat! We didn't have to leave until noon, so we wanted enjoy our remaining time there and not just wait around until our transfer. We had one last wonderful breakfast and then headed up to the pool. The pool at Chaa Creek was one of our favorite spots. So peaceful and a great spot for sharing the days experiences with other guests. There was an area to the side where you could get a massage right out there, which was on my list of things to do that I didn't get a chance to do but heard it was fabulous! Oh well...next time! I was feeling a bit sad to leave this bit of paradise in the jungle...however - our vacation wasn't over! We still had five more nights to go! Some final thoughts on our visit to Chaa Creek - it was an amazing and beautiful ecolodge, however it's expensive. I did feel that it was a value worth paying for though. The staff were amazing. I would highly recommend getting one of their packages that includes some excursions because they are expensive due to the travel costs. One thing that surprised me was the lack of wildlife, being right in the jungle. Having travelled to other jungle areas, such as Costa Rica, we expected more and saw virtually no mammals or even birds on the property. Chaa Creek is a great place for families and there were several there with younger kids during our stay. I'd bring our kids back in a second. However, the excursions may be long and a bit difficult for many kids, so think about that.
