Chan Chich Lodge

Getting Here

Chan Chich Lodge is located on Gallon Jug Estate in Northwestern Belize. The property is surrounded by the tri-national Maya Forest (“La Selva Maya”), the largest contiguous forest north of the Amazon basin.

There are several ways to arrive at the property. We can arrange ground transportation or charter flights and prices vary based on the number of guests travelling.

Ground Transfer (1-way)

Begin your vacation with a tour through the Belizean countryside. We offer ground transfer in a Lodge vehicle from the Belize International Airport (BZE) directly to the property. Depending on the time of day you are travelling, the trip will take from 3 to 4 hours.

*Rates are in USD and subject to 12.5% tax.

Pick-up can be arranged from other locations in Belize. Please contact us for more information.

Charter Flights (1-way)

The quickest & most preferred way to get to the property is to fly into the Gallon Jug airstrip. We work with a preferred charter company, though we are happy to book a charter with Tropic or Maya Island Air as well. It is a short 30-minute flight from the Belize International Airport, followed by a 15-minute drive to the Lodge.

*Rates are in USD and subject to 12.5% tax.
** Please note the following weight restrictions:
Cessna 172: maximum of 550 lbs; Cessna 206: maximum of 800 lbs. (passengers + luggage)
Charters can be quoted for groups of 8-12 by request.

Rental Car

While it is possible to drive to Chan Chich, you will be passing through private lands, and therefore permit access must be granted in advance.

Please let us know if you plan to drive a minimum of 7 days prior to your arrival. We will need to know the vehicle model, color, and plate numbers so that we can notify the gate keeper in advance. Please carry a copy of Chan Chich Lodge Confirmation Letter to be shown at the gates either in paper or electronic form.

The car needs to have comprehensive insurance coverage. We also recommend renting a vehicle with 4-wheel drive from National or Enterprise, especially if you are unfamiliar with the roads or in the event of inclement weather.

We suggest the following maps highlighted below to ensure a smooth and easy journey. Google Maps may provide alternative routes, but the roads are not favorable so it’s highly recommended to follow these routes:

If you are coming from the Philip Goldson International Airport, the drive is approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes.  You may use this map for your guidance: CHAN CHICH FROM BELIZE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.

If you are coming from other parts of Belize, you would drive towards Spanish Lookout, exiting at the roundabout from the Western Highway, past the Iguana Creek Bridge and onto to Iguana Creek Road and then follow this map: CHAN CHICH ROUTE FROM WESTERN BELIZE. From Spanish Lookout, the driving time is about 1 hour and 20 minutes.
