Jaguars are regularly seen in the Gallon Jug Area/ Chan Chich because this area of wild forests and wetlands plays host to plenty of peccaries, tapirs, and other animals that are preyed upon by the neotropical king of the jungle.
Sighting report from September 22nd -October 13th, 2012, jaguars were at Gallon Jug Area & Chan Chich Trails more than ten times during the daytime and nighttime. The majority of the time they were one day after the other.Posted on
Halloween is known as “All Hollow’s Eve.” It is a joyous and happy holiday…a time to remember friends and family who have died. Officially commemorated on November 2 (All Souls’ Day), the three-day celebration actually begins on the evening of October 31. This day is designed to honor the dead who are believed to return to their homes on Halloween. On November 2nd, 2012, we invite you to join us at Looter’s Trench Bar in the jungle starting with “la Calaca” drink and complimentary Hors-d’oeuvres from 5:00-6:00 pm with some entertaining music following with an appetizing dinner menu.
The following day wake up with the sounds of howler monkeys and enjoy the melody of the birds around the main plaza by getting ready for a delicious breakfast from 7:00 -9:00 am. Afterward you are welcome to explore our trails on your own or sign up for a guided walk service with one of our resident experts with a chance to encounter with a jaguar, ocelot or puma or other mammals. Following a long hike you are welcome to refresh yourself with a cold Belikin beer just getting ready to have lunch. Finishing with lunch the pool is available all day long or just stay in your cabana and relax on your hammock and enjoy the viewings of nature thinking on your costume you will be using for the surprising evening event starting from 4:00 pm until at Laguna Verde. You will be able to see the beautiful sunset accompanying with a cocktail drink (open Bar) or canoeing on the lake. Barbeque evening buffet will be served from 7:00- 8:00 pm and of course music will be available.
Rising from your bed next morning thinking on the reality on having to leave but taking good memories and looking forward in coming back, you are welcome for a brunch from 8:00 am-2:00 pm and getting ready to check out and say goodbye to this wonderful and memorable place.Posted on
What does a Jaguar represent to Mayan?
“A symbol of strength, divinity, and general domain over all things – a very big sign of power for the Mayans. By night, the jaguar god would rule over the Mayan Underworld, by day he would prowl across the morning sky from east to west, returning back to the Underworld at dusk. The cosmic forces of day and night fall into the jaguar’s realm. A symbol of imminent domain in all things celestial, as well as an ultimate sign for confidence and leadership”
These beautiful and powerful beasts was spotted at Laguna Seca. The area is often patrolled by a troop of resident spider monkeys and chances to spot ,White Lipped &White Collard Peccaries, agouti, puma,jaguar, ocelot, and Margy. It is a spot known for water loving species such as the Northern Jacana, Bare Throated Tiger Heron, Anhingas and many others. It is also known as a seasonal spot for Lovely Cotingas and Ornate Hawk-Eagles.Posted on
Everyone dreams of seeing a jaguar in the wild. They’re widely distributed, living almost anywhere that has large expanses of thick forest. The biggest populations and most frequent reported sightings are in the Chan Chich area and Rio Bravo Conservation & Management Area. Gallon Jug has five wildcats, all elusive like the jaguar: the puma (aka mountain lion or cougar), almost as big as the jaguar but a uniform gray or brown color (occasionally black); the ocelot, spotted similarly to the jaguar but a lot smaller; the margay, smaller again and also spotted; and the small, brown or gray jaguarundi. After getting the result from nine camera traps from Chan Chich trails and Gallon Jug area , we got tremendous shots of jaguar, puma, ocelot, gray fox, bracket-deer, white tail deer, agoutis, paca, coatimundi, tapir, bare-throated Tiger- Heron, turkeys with chicks, great curassow, crested-guan, and white-collar peccary.Posted on
When you come to Chan Chich Lodge, try Laguna Seca driving tour in early morning or late afternoon. I discovered that this area is busy of wildlife-jaguars, pumas, ocelots, white tail deers, brown bracket-deers, & birds.Posted on
1.5 miles away from the lodge, this mountain cow was spotted at the “aguada”(pond). The “aguada” is located northwest of the lodge-close to chicleros camp.” In 1985, when Barry Bowen led a crew of bushmen to the old site of Gallon Jug to start the process of re-opening the area, one of the men in the party, an old chiclero named Tenico, mentioned a long-forgotten chiclero camp named “Santa Maria”, which was located next to a large Maya site near the Chan Chich Creek.”
