Just thinking about it? Go ahead and book it! We stayed here in early December 2013 so this review is well overdue. The fact is, I just can't stop thinking about this amazing place. 3 nights and 4 days here worked like a balm applied to our body and mind after a hectic year in London.
We opted to arrive by boat and our guide George pointed lots of interesting birds and animals on the way to the lodge. During our stay we enjoyed all our daily activities. Being pretty jet lagged we're up early and able to see a sunrise each morning from the porch of our lagoon facing bungalow. We went canoeing at 6am! Hard work but what a great experience. The night spotlight safari was so much fun, we went twice during our stay. And our last night at the Lodge we were up for a real treat. A family of howler monkeys settled down for a few hours in the tree just above our room.
It was our first trip to Belize and the Lamanai Outpost Lodge was the best introduction I could have wished for. All our guides were fantastic and had a good sense of humour. And the meals prepared by the super friendly staff were delicious. Making friends with a resident cat Tollbridge was an added bonus.
In my opinion it's a must see place. I can highly recommend it to everybody who values fresh air and adventure over a 5* luxury and boredom.
