Things to Know when Reserving
Why we don't have AC at duPlooy's
Because we are an eco-lodge we want to let you know that we don't have AC. At certain times of year Belize can become quite hot and humid. Normally this is not a problem for our guests because the overhead jungle canopy and cooling tropical rains keep our rooms quite comfortable most of the year with just an overhead ceiling fan.
If you would like an additional fan, just ask at the Main Office and we will be happy to provide you with an upright fan, which will be put to good use during the dry season, from early April through May. We ask that you take this into consideration before reserving with us. Remember you can always cool off with a refreshing dip in the Macal River, which is convenient for swimming, tubing or canoeing any time or enjoy a cold drink at the Canopy Bar!
Wi-Fi is available at the bar and office ONLY! Also you will not find a TV or phone in your room. This is your opportunity to just relax at the bar or on your porch with a cool tropical drink and enjoy your pristine surroundings.
Our tap water comes from a 200ft well, which has been tested safe for drinking. There are also water filter stations in the office and bar where you can refill your water bottle. It is our policy to not sell bottled water or other beverages that come in plastic containers.
Because we are in the jungle there are a large variety of insects, some quite exotic looking, however they are unlikely to bite or sting.
