We have installed solar water heaters for all showers at the Funky Dodo!
The Funky Dodo welcomes students and professors from the Universidad Rural de Guatemala! We had a lot of fun! See you again soon!
Air Conditioning now available for selected rooms (not #2, #7 or the dormitory-sorry)
BZ$20 per day
We are trying something new: We have one portable ac unit which can be installed in your room in about 10 minutes. We only have one, So-first come, first served.
Electricity is very expensive in Belize (about 5 times higher than in the US, for instance). We ask that if you are not in the room that you please turn off the unit. If you don’t, we will.😀*We reserve the right to enter your room to turn off the AC if you leave it on while you are out and about.
This is a trial run for us, to see if there is demand.
If more people want AC, we will acquire more units.
