My elderly friend and I did not have a 4x4 vehicle, first mistake; went during the rainy season, second mistake; kept driving after nearly sliding off the road, third mistake. The food was just so-so; we were stuck in our room the entire time which was way big enough for 2 people; it slept 9; and there was construction going...

Thanks for your review. Since you were a last minute booking and you stayed in the only space we had left, you can hardly blame us for the room being too big or for the unseasonal weather. Most of visitors leave the rental car behind and ride with us which turns out to be less expensive and our driver/guides have...

A group of six of us stayed for a week. We lived in a huge house with 12 beds -- a little over the top! It rained almost every day but that didn't stop us. The teenagers loved the horseback riding and canoeing and caving -- lots of adventure. The adults enjoyed the botanic garden and the fantastic birdwatching. And...

Thanks for your review of duplooy's. I'm glad you had a good time in spite of the unseasonal weather. The rains only stop you from doing things when there are flood situations and of course, it's impossible to predict weather anywhere any more. At least it's not cold here! We are now back to sunshine with just enough rain to...

We stayed 10 days at duPlooy's and loved it. We stayed in a bungalow, which was roomy, quiet, and had a nice kitchenette; wonderful porch (with hammock) overlooking the Macal River, where we spent a lot of late afternoons. Even the pouring rain (unusual this time of year) couldn't dampen our spirits. The birding was outrageous, from our porch, from...

Thanks for your review. I'm glad that you got to go to the Women's Coop. It is one of the few coops that truly work and we have seen it evolve from a few craft items to what it is today. Well worth supporting. I know that the continental breakfast which consists of coffee or tee, fruit or juice and...

We spent 4 fabulous days at duPlooy"s and it was just not enough time. Every staff member was well-informed and friendly yet unobtrusively professional. They proudly educated us about their country and shared their different cultures with us. We were fortunate to stay in the Tree House, in a little world of our own. We were well looked after on...

Thanks for your positive comments. Of course, it doesn't hurt us to be able to live in what is, in our biased opinion, the best part of the country where the people take pride in their history and their work. And really care that you have good food. Judy duPlooy

Everything about the lodge is comfortable and welcoming. Our cottage was comfortable and equipped with everything we needed including a hammock on the screened porch. An ideal perch for listening to the birds and watching hummingbirds feed on the ginger and birds of paradise plants growing everywhere. The staff was so friendly and felt like family by the time we...

What a great staff and good food! Phillip met us at the airport. Learned he had been at the lodge 17 years. He was typical of the low turnover and loyalty. Judy keeps staff employed in the off season; hence the loyalty. Soon everyone knows your name and you become family. We came back with lots of receipts for food...
