I did a lot of research ahead of time on tours to Lamanai, and I am SO glad that I ultimately decided to book through Tropic Air. I read several reviews online of trips booked through other airlines that involved 45 minute long taxi rides (and keep in mind that taxi rides in Belize are not as comfortable as taxi rides in the U.S. -- especially in the air conditioning department), however, with Tropic Air, you fly in much closer to the site where you get on the river boat and your taxi ride is only about 5-8 minutes long. The river boat ride was excellent and provided a very nice breeze on a hot day in Belize. Our guide showed us lots of wildlife including a spider monkey (that some people on our boat got to hand feed fruit to!), lots of different birds, bats, and crocodiles. Once we arrived at Lamanai, we did an hour and a half walking tour of the site and saw several temples and even some howler monkeys way up in the trees. The guide was very informative and friendly, and overall the whole trip was just wonderful. It even included a delicious lunch that we ate at the pavillions at Lamanai. Highly recommend this trip -- but do it with Tropic Air!
