My husband and I were with Fun Birding Tours so birding was our main focus. The grounds of DuPlooys (including the Botanical Gardens) are even more sumptuous than I had imagined from looking at the website. The food was delicious and bountiful and there were lots of choices. The open air bar and deck were lovely places to enjoy morning coffee and evening cocktails while watching and listening for birds and reptiles and the kinkajous that come down from the trees to be fed bananas. The staff was fun and helpful and made us feel like old friends. I enjoyed seeing so many families traveling together and enjoying Belize. Everyone we met seemed to be on the adventurous side, hiking and canoeing and climbing Mayan temples. Phillip Mai, the DuPlooys birding guide really knows his stuff. I saw 224 species on the trip, heard another 14 and added 48 species to my life list. We will definitely visit again.
