I have been to Belize more than 12 times and stayed in many different accommodations in San Ignacio area. duPlooy's continues to be one of my favorite locations for a relaxing experience and a place to see outstanding variety of flora and fauna. The location is ideal for staying put and taking advantage of local recreation and relaxation. The food is above average. The rooms are comfortable and charming. The access to pristine Macal river and river activities is ideal. The Belize Botanical Gardens is inspirational, educational, and peaceful. The night hike with a licenced tour guide is exceptional. Reading a book in a hammock is fantastic.
