duPlooy's Jungle Lodge
Ranked #2 of 35 San Ignacio B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 October 2017

We booked a slightly last minute (found out had some vacation time that needed use before lose) and were pleasantly surprised to find that the “low season” meant affordable and incredible experiences in Belize.
We opted to the all inclusive package with duPlooy’s to help reduce stress and to make the most of our 4 days in the jungle.
We can not say enough positive things about everyone we met at the lodge (our only complaint is that we were the only guests during this time). Although we would have liked to meet other travelers, the staff were so incredible and friendly that we did not feel alone.
Mariel arranged all of our tours and was beyond helpful; Ophelia and Josh were so welcoming and great to talk with during meals. The grounds crew, owners and tour guides were phenomenal. The food was delicious!
As far as facilities, the lodge is eco-friendly (we loved this), rooms were very clean and well maintaned. No AC, so ceiling fans and open windows were the way to go. The owners’ cat adopted us for the days we were there and insisted on sleeping in our room with us (we are animal lovers and she knew we were suckers for purring and lap sitting).
The tours all set out first thing in the morning... yes your are vacation, but get up early and do this to get to the places early to avoid the cruise ship crowds. We did the ATM Caves (incredible!), day trip to Tekal (gorgeous) and cave tubing paired with Xunantunich.
We flew to the beach following our stay (book this with your accommodation to get the discount). Nothing like crawling into a tiny plane, being allowed to sit in the navigator’s seat, and flying over the country!

Room Tip: Couples can stay in the Tree House! No real bad place on the property.

Se want to duplooys with a Group of Family and friends, we had a blast! We stayed in la Casona, it was beautiful. We horseback rode, went river tubing, canoeing, and did a garden tour. We also went to Final and ATM Cave which were both incredible as well. Some of our group did cave tubing and loved it. The food was great and every staff member we interacted with were friendly, knowledgeable and fun. This is a great place for families, couples, who love nature. We will definitely be going back there again, thanks to everyone at duPlooy's for making our vacation so special and memorable!

We had our annual family reunion this year at duPlooy's and had a spectacular time. There was something for everyone from kids to granny. My favorite memory we made was tubing on the river that runs around part of the perimeter of the lodge. The staff were excellent with their service, food and touring advice (Tikal and cave exploration!). I highly recommend duPlooy's to anyone who wants to spend some quality time and reconnect with their family.

Would have rated excellent except for a few minor observations. Excellent location, comfortable eco lodge that will get you as close as possible to a jungle like setting. It was low season so we practically have the whole place to ourselves. Staff goes out of their way to make you feel welcome and can book any excursion with excellent guide (therefore worth the price). Going tubing down the river or a swim at the end of the day is just wonderful. Close to airport if you don't want a 2 hrs car ride to Belize city and 1.5 hr water taxi to Ambregris Caye. Botanical garden is beautiful but needs work. Water pressure was a bit low during our stay so some folks may not be too happy. Would definitely come back.

Loved the hiking. Bird feeder gives you close looks at birds. I am giving low stars because the staff at the bar didn't listen to any of our reasonable requests considering dietary restrictions, neglected us for most of our meal, and then didn't charge my debit card until 5 months later (caused me to overdraw). Wouldn't say no to this place but I want to warn you to be very clear with your orders and pay cash.

Thank you for your comments. It's unusual that our staff gets a negative comment so when I show them this review, I'm sure that this won't happen again, but I do want to apologize to you.
