As a guest of Sun Creek Lodge, you are no doubt curious about the history of the Sun Creek area and the inception of one of Belize's memorable eco-lodges.
In August 2001, work began clearing the thick jungle underbrush. Trees harvested from the newly cleared fields were processed and used in the construction of the lodge; posts, stick and thatch harvested from the surrounding jungle.
The Lodge was completed in 2001 but Hurricane Iris came and wiped out the property the day before they officially opened.
While many people would have given up, Melissa and Bruno Kuppinger continued to pursue their dream and have since rebuilt the accommodation.
The Lodge was opened on May 1, 2004 to a group of four adventurous tourists who had no idea what to expect.
The Lodge got it’s name from the combination of the hot and dry sun and the creek that runs through the
property, thus making it Sun Creek Lodge. Melissa, who is Belizean, loves flowering tropical plants and has incorporated her love of gardening into the landscape of the property. Bruno, originally from Germany, has a love for both business and the outdoors. Running the lodge and tours gives both Bruno and Melissa the opportunity to balance their creativity, hospitality, personal interests and formal training into one of the top accommodations off-the-beaten path.
