The Lamanai ruins are definitely worth seeing. You take a speed boat that goes through the jungle to reach them, and they rise right out of the jungle itself. The ruins are not nearly as developed as many of the Roman, Greek, or Egyptian ruins,...More

The temples that have been excavated are very different from ones we've seen previously in Mexico. The history was told well by our guide from Lamanai Outpost Lodge, and we understand that this area was used far longer than other Mayan areas. The museum really...More
