On December 21, 2012, the ancient Maya calendar ends.  Is it a time of transition, Will the world end? Nothing at all?  No one knows for sure…but no matter what you believe, what better place to see in the new era, than in the land of the Maya!

Spend this exciting time with us at duPlooy’s Jungle Lodge in Cayo.  From here you can see the best of inland Belize and experience Maya sites, caves, waterfalls, jungle horseback trips, canoeing along the On December 21, 2012, the ancient Maya calendar ends.  Is it a time of transition?  Will the world end?

DuPlooy’s is offering a special package with the 22nd of December free.  If you think that we will still be here, this is a bargain.  If you don’t, at least you didn’t have to pay for the 22nd! Start on December 18th and book this all-inclusive 4-night package and get the 5th night (December 22) free.  To celebrate our continued presence on the planet, there will be a special dinner and entertainment on the 22nd.

December 18, 2012… 3 more days!
The countdown begins with your transfer from Belize International Airport to duPlooy’s Jungle Lodge.  If there is time, you can stop at the Belize Zoo enroute.  5pm welcome cocktail party where one name will be drawn from all guests present and the lucky winner will receive a complete rebate on all monies paid to duPlooy’s for this package.  Prize will be paid in cash at the cocktail party in Belize $.

December 19, 2012… 2 more days
Choose from a trip to Barton Creek Cave where guided canoe will weave its way through the sacred space of the Maya amongst incredible limestone formations. Re-enter the light and wend your way into Belize’s Mountain Pine Ridge area where you will picnic and swim at Big Rock Falls. On the way back stop at the San Antonio Women’s co-op to have a look at how some local Maya women make their living.  Tour the farm and get your hands into the culture by trying a bit of potter making or patting out a tortilla to cook on the fire.

December 20, 2012… Tomorrow may be a big day
Or not – but you’d better make the most of today by visiting Ya’xcha Maya site in Guatemala.  An early departure takes you across the border into Guatemala for an hour’s drive to a guided tour of the lake and temples of this amazing site.  Return to duPlooy’s and if you’re still energetic, wander around adjacent Belize Botanic Gardens or head for the beach for a swim or canoeing.

December 21, 2012… This may be it!
Today might be a good day for reflection.  Spend it gently paddling a canoe to San Ignacio or taking in the views by horseback.  If you want to muster your energy for the new age, drift gently downstream by inner tube or do nothing more than indulge your body with a massage treatment or facial at duPlooy’s.

December 22, 2012… That was it!

If we are still in this world that means we might be here for awhile, surrounded by the natural wonders of Belize.  Belize Botanic Gardens is the perfect place to think about what each of us can do to continue to make tomorrow better for
ourselves and generations to come.

Judy duPlooy Tue, 22 Sep 2009 17:15:34 +0000 Admin Today I came  to work at the du Plooy’s office bright and early.  As I grogily walked up the hill  I came upon a White -Tailed Deer feeding right outside the  office. I know this is a common sighting in some parts of the U.S. but here it is a rare and splendid sight. This was more then the morning cup of coffee I was so looking forward to could do to wake me up.

I suddenly became alert to the world around me.  As I approached the office, I looked up and saw a splendid fusion of pinks, oranges, and yellows.  In bloom right now are a Pink Cassia, Flambouyant, and a Golden Shower, their colours come together so wonderfully.  I walked through the office and out front to collect the previous nights sales, here in the jungle we all have our trials with Leaf Cutter Ants; however I must remark on their beautiful trail this morning of yellow from the Golden Shower Tree.   No sooner did I look over head into the  Pink Cassia tree and there was a  Rose Throated Becard couple building their nest.   As alway I was amazed of the beautiful world surrounding me.   To think I had not even turned on my computer!

Welcome to our new website Thu, 05 Feb 2009 09:24:34 +0000 Admin Hope you like the new design! We’ll now be adding lots more news and special offers than we did previously, so stay tuned…

If you have a yen to try your hand at tortilla or tamale making, basket weaving, or other local
food or craft, ask about Belize Botanic Garden’s Traditional Knowledge workshop. This has to be scheduled a day ahead, but it’s lots of fun and very informative. A Traditional Knowledge Workshop can be included as a half day activity on packages. It includes a guided Healer’s Walk in the gardens, along with an activity such as one of those listed above. The activity takes place in the Maya house in the garden and a typical Mayan lunch is served there.
