Of Special Note:
You may find that Belize is a little different than home, providing differences in climate, language, culture, people and even insect size to discover and in which to delight.
Some will be un-phased by the sudden chortle of chachalacas out the window or army ants in their deodorant stick while others may run screaming from their room at the merest glimpse of a scorpion. (no need, they are deaf). We want to assure you that, to date, none of our guests have been eaten alive by bats, crocodiles or even albino fish.
How to find us.
We can pick you up and bring you to duPlooy’s. Also buses run regularly from Belize City and other towns to San Ignacio. From San Ignacio a taxi ride up to duPlooy’s should cost you about $25.00.
Renting a car? From Belize City get on the Western Highway and head west for about 72 miles. You will be slightly detoured driving through San Ignacio, but just ask directions to the Western Highway heading towards the Benque border. Once you are on the highway again look for the duPlooy’s sign after about 5 miles. Turn left on to a dirt road and follow the signs for about 5 more miles.
