duPlooy’s Jungle Lodge, located along the banks of the Macal River offers a large variety of adventures.  Frolick about in waterfalls and cascading pools, ride a horse to a cave and float back downstream to the lodge.  Experience the famous ATM (Actun Tunichil Mucknal) Cave, climb Mayan temples in Belize and Guatemala.

Canoe through the Mayan underworld and zing high above the canopy on a zipline or or try rappelling 300  ft down into a sink hole.
