duPlooy's has been on my list for years and it rose to the top this trip because some of my friends are avid birders. We visited in October and the special price for package tours during a typically slow month in Belize added to the incentives. We were thrilled with this choice - a perfect fit! The 5 of us... More

Judy was a wonderful host and her staff were friendly and helpful. Clean rooms. Beautiful flora and fauna. The botanical gardens are a must see. Actun Tunichil Muknal is a once in a lifetime tour that shouldn't be missed.
