Lamanai Outpost Lodge, Belize

If you’ve always wanted to walk along a twisting path, through the dense greens of a naturally overgrown jungle, to discover a ruined Mayan city rearing out of the forest…come to Lamanai.

Similarly, if want to catch dazzling glimpses of multi-coloured toucans streaking across the canopy, or listen to howler monkeys calling to distant troupes, all you have to do is walk out of your cabana.

Or perhaps you’d prefer to skim over reedland swamps in an airboat, go fishing for giant lake fish or zoom across a placid lagoon in an inflatable canoe?

At Lamanai you have it all; including the chance to relax beside warm waters, stay in a charming private cabana and indulge yourself in great food served in a thatched, open air restaurant.
