Her last trip she stayed at DuPlooy's in the Cayo District. I stayed there as well the summer of 2000. This place is AWESOME. It's right on the Macal River, so canoes etc. are available. You can take a trip up river and they will pick you up. They have numerous cave tubing, horse back riding, and ruins tours available. All are fun. We took a day trip to Tikal in Guatamala and had the times of our lives. Once you've seen these ruins, nothing else compares! Our tour guides and escorts were 1st rate and top notch. The rooms we stayed in were bungalos and were so nice. There is a boardwalk that connects them, and it wanders through the jungle. The jungle noises, flora and fauna were incredible. There was a botanical garden on site when we were there. I'm not sure if it still is. My sons saw nesting iguanas, enormous toads, (even caught one)and those wierd little rodents that some Belizians eat........ They put fruit out into the jungle on a pully to attract the birds.... macaws and toucans are not uncommon. There is a family style restaurant on site, and the food was outstanding. Little Guatamalan ladies cooked everything homemade and the daily menus were quite nice. Do a search for DuPlooy's on the net. It should pop right up. I HIGHLY recommend it.
