For a remote, unique jungle lodge experience, a visit to Lamanai Outpost Lodge is unsurpassed. You'll travel by boat up the New River, passing birds and the occasional crocodile. Suddenly, the river opens up to a beautiful spring-fed lake, and you are transported back in time as you pass the ancient Mayan Lamanai ruins. A few minutes later, when your boat docks at Lamanai Outpost Lodge, you know you are in a special place. The thatch roofed cabanas are sited in beautifully landscaped, private jungle setting, surrounded by wild habitat and wildlife.
At Lamanai, your opportunties for activities are abundant, and our all-inclusive price includes the most popular activities. Explore the ruins with a local guide - or take a leisurely canoe ride to the ruins on your own. Enjoy a sunset cruise along the banks of the lake, visit a Mayan village and learn about Mayan rainforest medicine, or go on a nocturnal animal spotting safari. Go in search of the loud and amusing howler monkeys, and participate in a nighttime crocodile encounter. (Perfectly safe; we haven't lost a traveler yet!) Family-friendly, with out of this world food, Lamanai Outpost Lodge is not to be missed.
Isla Marisol Resort is a pristine and secluded palm-studded island located on Glover's Atoll in Belize. It is one of the most spectacular, untouched reef systems in the Caribbean and a UN World Heritage Site. This private island is located some 30 miles from the mainland and offers world-class scuba diving that is virtually unparalleled in the Caribbean.
"Want to Dive with the World's Largest Fish?" Check out our Dive with Whale Sharks Program at Isla Marisol! Because of the atoll's protected status, grouper, moray, colorful trigger fish and large parrot fish abound. Enjoy encounters with dolphins, eagle rays and sea turtles.
Incredible wall diving is a stone's throw from the resort, with a 2,000-foot wall right in front. Snorkel or dive on guided trips around the 80-square-mile atoll, or in the crystal clear lagoon within the resort. Other activities include kayaking and excellent fly-fishing and trolling.
All of the private cabanas overlook the reef and have private porches with hammock. All cabanas have a private bathroom with hot water shower and daily maid service. Isla Marisol Resort is a small, family owned and personal, with only 11 cabañas and two larger Reef House-- you won't have to share paradise with large crowds!
If your ideal Belize all-inclusive vacation includes a stay in a casual, friendly, family run jungle lodge, then duPlooy's is an excellent option. The lodge is on the Macal River, near the Guatemalan border. It's the perfect launch pad for a trip to Tikal, the largest Mayan ruins in the area. There are also plenty of activities right on the premises - swimming in the clear, cool waters of the river, relaxing on a small, private sandy beach, canoeing, horseback riding or visiting the Belize Botanic Gardens or the Butterfly Sanctuary close by. Birders will enjoy spotting birds from the bird blind in the Belize Botanic Gardens, or from the 200 foot canopied walkway of duPlooy's deck where toucans come to share your breakfast.
Off the property, choose from one of the many tours we offer, either to Tikal, or one of Belize's many ruins: Caracol, Xunantunich, El Pilar and Cahal Pech. duPlooy's is also a good base for cave exploration - some of the caves even have ancient Mayan artifacts and burials in them!
Any of these tours is included in the price of your trip!

Join us during the full moons of March, April, May, June to dive with the whale sharks, the gentle giants of Belize's Gladden Spit. You will stay on a remote, pristine and palm-studded island at the laid back Isla Marisol Resort and spend 3, 4 or 7 nights enjoying world-class diving.
Whale sharks are the largest fish in the world. Despite their confusing name, whale sharks are not mammals, but in fact, sharks. These huge creatures feed mainly on plankton and other small marine life by sucking enormous amounts of water into their large mouths and filtering organisms out. Because of their non-aggressive nature, whale sharks are favorite subjects for scuba divers to watch and photograph.
During the spring months, whale sharks congregate in the Gladden Spit area to take advantage of the snapper spawning. This usually occurs around the full moon, and because it is a fairly predictable event, divers come from all over the world to see these giants.
