It is fun to see so many visitors who have been with us more than once and to welcome new folks to share in the endless activities available in Belize’s Cayo District. We like it when people return and even give them a 10% returning guest’s discount.
We have recently added Yaxhá Maya site to our long list of things to do. Yaxhá is a medium-size site (with good wildlife and not a lot of visitors yet) and is located about halfway between the Belize border and Tikal. If you want to see both of these sites, consider doing an overnight trip. You can stop at Yaxhá on the way, overnight at Tikal or Flores and do your tour of Tikal the next day before returning to duPlooy’s. Or better yet, spend two nights.
A new option on our popular Create Your Own Vacation Package is a day’s rental car. Lots of people like to explore on their own, but find that they don’t use a car much if they rent one for the whole time they are here. Having a car for a day or two is a great way to see the area on your own, so just ask if you would like to include this option.
More people are spending time just around the property which has a lot to offer in itself. Of course, there’s Belize Botanic Gardens right next door and free to our guests. There are several miles of hiking trails within and around the property. You can even hike to Xunantunich from duPlooy’s. The Macal River is lovely for swimming and the beach is a fun place to spend a few hours, picnicking, swimming, canoeing, tubing or just relaxing.
