Belize has always welcomed visitors from Panama. Now it is even easier to visit with Copa’s new direct flights to Belize. So just hop on the plane and come to experience all that Belize has to offer. We call Belize “the Jewel” for good reason – there is so much to do here in a small geographic area. Not to mention that it’s beautiful.

Where else can you visit Maya sites, bask in jungle waterfalls, canoe down mountain streams, even float through a cave in a canoe or inner-tube, explore mysterious caves and then head for the Caribbean for diving, snorkeling or just basking by the blue waters.

Belizean hospitality is casual and friendly and, thanks to its many cultures, there is a wide variety of local foods to enjoy throughout the country.

If you want to spend your time immersed in nature, duPlooy’s Jungle Lodge is the place to visit. With access to Belizean Maya sites and even Tikal and Yaxha in Guatemala, caves, waterfalls, horseback riding to a cave, canoeing back downstream to the lodge, exploring deep into the Mayan underworld or looking for some of the more than 300 birds seen in the area and spending time in the adjacent Belize Botanic Gardens there is almost too much to do, so pay close attention to the hotel’s motto “make sure you stay long enough” DuPlooy’s is an eco lodge, located on the shores of the lovely Macal River in inland Belize, just a 35 minute flight or a 1-1/2 hour’s drive from Belize City.
