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.

Attraction Visited


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.
