One of my favorite stops in Belize, this was well worth the trip. Nestled into the forest/jungle, you can see countless other potential ruin sites nearby popping out of the ground in the distance. This place definitely makes the mind wander.

Great site with enough written history in the small museum and enough property to roam around to satisfy both the history and the active people in our group. There is a stair 'workout' to get to the site's office before you even get to the...More

The guide on site was very helpful with our group of 9 in explaining the artifacts in the one room museum that is on site.The meaning of Lubaatun is “Place of the Fallen Stones”. There are a lot of fallen stones here.

If you are into history I would recommend this place. My group booked this through Cotton Tree Lodge where we were staying. These ruins were blown up by dynamite so you have to be careful where you step at times.

Maybe I’m jaded having seen numerous Mayan ruins but I didn’t find this to be anything special considering the 7 miles of dirt road you have to travel to get here. If you are deciding between Lubantuun and Nim Il Punit go to Nim I’ll...More

Out of all the ruins you can see in a close proximity to Placencia, lubaantun is the best. However - there are much cooler ruins in Belize to see that are closer to Belize city. I enjoyed the sites but next time I go -...More
