Not that this will be so noticeable to guests…but the upgrades/rehabbing continue. We have now completely re-done the entire plumbing system. New pipes, new and better septic system.
Great water pressure in all showers and faucets…finally. Still no hot water…looking into a solar water heater, but those are very expensive, so it will be a while before we can do that, but it’s in the plan…
More to come!
Remodel/upgrade of our private room with bathroom done. 😀
We love motorcycle tour riders! And we have a safe space for you to park your ride while you’re here.
There are many amazing dive sites on the Barrier reef less than 45 minutess by motor boat from Hopkins Village. We offer half or full day dive trips that take you on a Caribbean adventure with some true Belizean talent and seamanship.
This tour takes you on a short ride down Sittee river with stunning wildlife, jungle and mangroves on both sides along the banks of the river. After a 10 minute ride down the river you reach the ocean and you go skipping over the water with the wind in your hair through the first range of Cayes and onward to the barrier reef.
The tour goes to 2 or 3 different islands including Tobacco Caye, South Water Caye, Bread and Butter caye and many more.
For lunch the tour stops at a Caye where you can relax, explore, chill out and snorkel from the beach whilst your meal is prepared.
Diving in the warm, calm, clear water inside the reef is spectacular. On any one outing you will see dozens and dozens of different varieties of fish, all in their Technicolor glory.
The boat that we take you out on is powered by an outboard motor with cushioned seating and a canopy to keep you in the shade.

The price of sheets in Belize is stupid. As in expensive. Like US$40 for a twin set of mostly polyester sheets. (yuck–sleeping on plastic)
If you’re coming to the Funky Dodo, have just a little room in your pack, and would like to help us out with a small donation, please bring sheet sets. White, twin or full size. We’ll love you forever.
Apologies to all who tried to contact us in the last few days. The problems have been solved. We have a new phone number:

Exciting night time river cruise at Sunset to explore a stunning tropical jungle river where you can see large crocodiles, iguanas and bio-luminescent plankton. The boat ride goes up river and through small creeks into a lagoon.
On this tour you take a boat ride out along the Sittee river at sunset with a guide and experience the Bioluminescent plankton in the wake of the boat and the glowing eyes of the crocodiles in the dark. The trip lasts about 3 hours and your guide will show you the amazing wildlife along the banks of Sittee river and in the lagoons.
The quiet, calm water is a relaxing and interesting experience, for the abundance of wildlife along its banks is fascinating. Marine and freshwater crocodiles inhabit the banks and waters of the river and sightings are very common. Iguanas in all the colors they come can be seen on the branches of trees hanging over the river. There is a wide variety of airborne wildlife like flycatchers, egrets, kingfisher, toucans, parrots and herons.
The mangroves located at the mouth of this river are the tallest ever reported for the Caribbean region and among the tallest anywhere in the entire tropics. The mouth of the Sittee River presents the optimal conditions for mangrove development and the forest found there has a high level of structural development. Freshwater flows and sediments carried by the river itself, draining from the Maya Mountains, and tidal flushing from the Caribbean Sea all support this tree growth.
