Lamanai Jungle River
Enjoy a delightful continental breakfast as we make our way to the mainland by boat. Along the way the guides point out the rich variety of flora & fauna. Once on the main land we board a private bus or van that takes us to Tower Hill. Upon arrival at Tower Hill we board another boat that takes us down the New River to Lamanai. As we make our way down the river we encounter birds, monkeys & crocodiles. At Lamanai we take a break for lunch, served under the canopy of the jungle; followed by a guided tour of the ruins that perch on the water’s edge.
Lamanai is an extensive and diverse Mayan site set deep in the jungle along the banks of the New River Lagoon. One of the longest-occupied Mayan sites in Belize, Lamanai served as home to up to 35,000 Maya from 500 B.C., up until the beginning of the Spanish colonial period in the 17th century.
Many of our tours and activities offer transportation pick up & drop off options from several locations and destinations. Options vary by tour, see “BOOKING REQUEST” for full details.

This tour takes you from Ambergris Caye to the mainland, where you’ll set sail down the legendary Lamanai River toward a Maya ruin. Lamanai has sat, shrouded in jungle, for many centuries, and didn't get any attention from archeologists until the 1970s. But this tour truly isn’t about the destination – travelers should take this trip especially for the journey through the gorgeous surroundings of the Belizean jungle alone.
