Chan Chich Lodge is located within the 30,000-acre Gallon Jug private reserve. The lodge is surrounded by Belize jungle-covered hills—the site of a 3,000-year-old Maya settlement. Led by resident guides, guests can explore the ancient plazas, partially-excavated temples, and a ritual ball court.

The reserve is contiguous to additional conservation areas—a combined half million acres of protected habitat for more than 500 species of birds. The jungle is also home to howler monkeys, colorful frogs, deer, pumas, and jaguars. Over nine miles of trails surround the lodge. Guided forest walks, canoe excursions, and horseback rides can be arranged.

The lodge has a farm-to-table restaurant, featuring fresh ingredients from farms in Gallon Jug and Spanish Lookout; roughly 60% of the plant-based ingredients (including shade-grown coffee) are sourced on site.
