I loved this ruin because the drive to it was so interesting through the Mennonite village. Beautiful sprawling farms with horse and buggies. The ruin itself is located amidst the jungle, beautifully maintained paths. Glad I did not go when a tour bus had just...More

If you want to immerse yourself in history, definitely go to Lamanai- the longest inhabited Mayan site. I have been to Tulum, Coba, and Chicken Itza- all very cool- but I was awesome by the history of Lamanai. Definitely use Lamanai Belize Tours- a really...More

We pre-booked this tour with Carnival Cruise Lines. If you are planning an excursion in Belize I recommend you book with the cruise ship. You have to take a tender boat from the ship to land and the ship tours get to leave the ship...More

Lamanai was accessed by a boat that went pretty fast most of the time, so not a leisurely cruise. The Mayan ruins were impressive. There was interesting wildlife around, like toucans, howler monkeys and a coati, but little time to admire or photograph them. The...More

Highly recommend taking an excursion to Lamanai to see Mayan ruins, wild monkeys, etc. Tour involves a one hour bus ride from Belize City, a 30 minutes boat ride, and a 2-3 hour tour of the site. Saw several groups of howler monkeys. Lunch (chicken...More
