Lamanai Outpost Lodge was so exotic with its thatched roof cabanas and wandering pathways. We really felt like we were in the remote jungle. Our cabana was spotless, with fresh flower bouquets and very nice bedding. Food was wonderful and abundant with 3 full meals daily, often seeming to feature local dishes. Lots of fresh fish and seafood, vege’s , desserts. The staff was so helpful and friendly. The wait staff sometimes had time to chat and told us about local history and culture. And the guides, especially Manuel and Raul, were so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Mayan culture and history, about birds, and animals as well. We loved the activities, with scheduling 4 times a day we kept really busy but still lounged in our deck hammock overlooking the lagoon. Howler monkeys visited one day and we got many pics of them feeding. They howled early mornings and evenings. The sky was filled with bright stars from our deck and hammock. The spotlight night tour with Raul was great. He showed us many exotic birds and a couple crocs when we were in this very open boat so it felt like we were skimming along the water. Because we were less than 10 minutes by boat from the Lamanai Ruins, we toured in the cooler AM and were finished by the time the cruise ship tours arrived. Manuel ( name?), who was of Mayan descent, was an extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide. This was our very favorite eco-lodge of 4 we visited in Belize over 3 weeks. We definitely recommend it and look forward to a future visit.
