I am so happy that we got advice to stay at DuPlooy's from some bird-watching friends of ours. We are a family of 5, with two teenages (16, 14), and an 8 year old. The setting of the lodge is incredible, very secluded, yet very comfortable and "cozy" at the same time. It felt like a tropical paradise to us. I could not get over how incredibly friendly and helpful the staff was - every single one of them. We spent several days with Victor, and our youngest son William almost cried when he had to say goodbye. Victor is particularly wonderful with kids, but everyone else was, too. The lodge is on a river with crystal clear water, and as a regular swimmer, it was fantastic to end the day swimming in a very clean river with birds flying all around. There are many, many activities to choose from, and you will not run out of things to do. I applaud Judy, the owner, for keeping it very eco-friendly. The accomodations were large and very comfortable. I can't say enough good things about this place.

It was great to see the young people so interest in watching the birds. There are so many right around you that it's hard not to get interested.

I agree with you about the river. The people who come here when it's muddy (but still clean) do not get this experience. I too swim there nearly every day which is why I get to be a fit 70 year old.

Thanks so much.

Duplooy’s eco-Jungle Lodge is a “slice of heaven on earth!” From the minute we arrived, we felt it was going to be a special vacation, and it truly was. We went with our good friends who had visited Duplooy’s many times, so they gave us ideas of things we could do. We ended up getting in great shape by walking every morning through the beautiful botanical gardens and down by the riverwalk, while watching and listening to all the tropical birds, and then almost always tubing down the Macaw River to cool down during the afternoon. One day we were also able to get a ride into market in San Ignacio and visited some local pubs/restaurants. Another day we visited the Xunantunich Myan Ruins. Wow, talk about an experience. One of us climbed to the top (not me), which was quite a hike, but well worth it, I hear, for the view. While at the ruin, we heard howler monkeys and actually saw a spider monkey who kept us entertained for a good half hour.
The staff at Duplooys was very friendly and knowledgeable. They all felt like family by the time our trip ended. Duplooy’s has a restaurant that we ordered breakfast, lunch and dinner most days. We did not have one bad meal. The specials varied every night, and there was always a choice that would put a smile on your face and a dessert to die for.
I have never had a more relaxing vacation in my life. The sounds, sights and people made me forget about the hectic life we all sometimes lead. Now it’s a matter of the wait to go back!!

Thanks for your review of duPlooy's. You spent a lot of time around the lodge which is what we really like. You don't really have to go far from the lodge to enjoy some of the experiences that are Belize's jungle.

Hope to see you here again one of these days.

We had a great family vacation. Everything went smoothly, from pick up at airport, stay at the lodge, excursions, and travel to the "beach hotel". Staff friendly, ready to answer all our questions. Food was great. Rooms were clean. It was fabulous not to hear traffic, airplanes, helicopter noise etc. Fun to watch the birds,kinkajous, and various other wildlife.
Whole family (Grandma, mom, dad, 3 teen boys) thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We were picked up at Belize City airport by a wonderful guide from DuPlooys and had a great drive to the lodge. He was very friendly and well informed. The lodge is fairly remote, which is great to be tucked back in the jungle for a relaxing vacation. The people were exceptionally friendly, the food excellent, the service was superior. The lack of TV was wonderful, and no A/C was not a problem with the ceiling fans. We did outings to Guatemala to see Tikal, and they provided a wonderful driver, guide, lunch - a great day! We also did the Cave Tubing, which was a real blast, the lodge sent us with a picnic lunch which was delicious! We loved the bar area to relax, visit with the friendly bartender, the resident kinkajous that came every evening! We loved our visit there and would certainly recommend them to anyone!

Thanks so much for your review of duPlooy's. The fact that I took so long to respond doesn't indicate lack of appreciation - just a bit of procrastination. We like that you would recommend our lodge to people.

I loved our time at Du Plooy's! Food was good, service was very friendly and we had a nice chance to get acquainted with the staff over the course of 5 days. Met some very interesting people and the guides there were superb. They even pulled us through cave tubing (we are both over 70). The lack of air conditioning did not bother me--I actually hate air conditioning. The fans were very adequate at night. I especially liked the firm, flat bed where the sheets and mattress did not cling to me allowing good air circulation. Philip the bird guide was excellent although I didn't get enough time with him. Great birds! We did get to spend an entire morning with the botanist at the botanic garden and loved getting acquainted with tropical trees that we in temperate regions have no idea of--we only see the fruit. Glad they didn't have a pool or workout center--that means the people who need those don't come. It was a great place for families.

Room Tip: they will find a good one.

Thanks for your review of duPlooy's. Guests who appreciate us for what we are are the ones we want to visit us. And I think there are more and more folks like that around these days. Just getting away to a completely different environment is what a real vacation is all about.

Your comments mean a lot.
