Overzicht

Verken de oude Maya-ruïnes van Lamanai, een van de topattracties in Belize. Vaar langs de New River en bekijk exotische dieren in het wild terwijl je je een weg baant naar de ontzagwekkende archeologische vindplaats. Een korte jungle wandeling leidt je naar indrukwekkende tempels, pleinen en stenen beelden diep begraven in het regenwoud van Belize. Retourvervoer van en naar het hotel door een tropische lagune zijn inbegrepen in deze tour van een hele dag.
  • Dagexcursie naar de Lamanai Maya-ruïnes
  • Wildlife spotting cruise langs de New River
  • Korte jungle wandeling naar de Lamanai Maya-site
  • Lunch aan de lagune
  • Vrije tijd voor sightseeing in het regenwoud
  • Ophalen en afzetten bij de meeste hotels in Belize-stad
Ontdek een van de belangrijkste en meest indrukwekkende Maya-plekken in Belize met deze hele dag rondleiding door Lamanai, wat 'ondergedompelde krokodil' betekent in Maya. Na het ophalen van je hotel in Belize City, passeer je door de lokale dorpjes op de oprit langs de noordelijke snelweg. Bij Tower Hill spring je op een boot voor een cruise langs de schilderachtige kreken en lagunes van de New River.
Houd veel inheemse vogelsoorten in de gaten, waaronder valken, haviken, vliegers en elegante jacana's die op waterlelies lopen. Tropische orchideeën, bromelia's en hardhout langs de rivieroevers zorgen voor een prachtige reis in de richting van de New River Lagoon. Hier krijg je je eerste glimp van de indrukwekkende stenen ruïnes van Lamanai die uit de jungle oprijzen. Na een stap terug op het land, maak je een rondleiding door het museum voor wat achtergrondinformatie over de oude Maya's en bekijk je voorwerpen die je tegenkomt op de ruïnes.
Vanaf hier voert een wandeling van 2,5 kilometer (2,5 kilometer) dieper het oerwoud in naar het hart van de oude stad. Een cluster van ceremoniële structuren verschijnt door het weelderige regenwoud, terwijl de roep van vogels en brulapen een soundtrack biedt voor de mystieke scène. Je ziet de Jaguar-tempel, het goed bewaard gebleven masker van de Maya-zonnegod Kinich Ahau, uitgehouwen stenen steles, de maskertempel en de imposante hoge tempel, die boven de boomtoppen uittorent.
Na het verkennen van de ruïnes met je gids, geniet je van een lunch aan de kant van de nabijgelegen lagune. U hebt dan enige tijd om de site zelf te verkennen voordat u de reis terug naar uw hotel maakt.

Our first adventure did not disappoint. The river trip guide was very informative and stopped along the way to point out a variety of animal life including crocs, bats, and birds. The Lamanai temples are pretty amazing but due to the growth surrounding them it was hard to imagine how the whole complex functioned and fit together. We were expecting lunch close to the ruins so were quite hungry when we finally completed the trip and returned to the starting point restaurant for lunch, so bring snacks!

Highly recommended - an adventure. The van to pick us up was on time and comfortable for the trip to the boat landing. The trip up the river was on a smaller boat which provided the ability to stop and get close to the shore to view birds and iguanas. We saw one small crocodile. At Lamanai we heard a very loud troop of howler monkeys - then later had a troop of a dozen or so spider monkeys cross over the path between pyramids. The lunch was homemade food and was very good. Would go again.

Traveling as a group of four and staying in Belize City, we were excited to tour the Mayan ruins at Lamanai. We booked our tour online with Viator before traveling to Belize. The trip was very well organized. Our particular tour operator was Discovery Expeditions and our tour guide/driver to the New River was Vel. Two others in our group booked their trip while in Belize through another company. So it seems to be random which tour operator you are assigned. Vel picked us up in a van at our hotel and drove us to the New River about an hour and a half ride where we joined several other groups and different tour operators on the boat to Lamanai. The boat was very crowded with the various guides and different groups. The boat operator was outstanding. He stopped to point out crocs and birds during the 1 1/2 hour ride to Lamanai. Once at the ruins, our group was led by Vel who gave us an informative and well guided tour of the ruins. His presentation was fun and he was very knowledgeable. We hiked to four or five different temples and ruins and were allowed to climb them if we wished. I opted to climb several of the temples that had regularly built staircases. But I truly appreciated the beauty of the sites and the wonderful explanation that Vel gave about each of them. After we had toured the sites, the boat operator set out a traditional Belizean lunch for all who had been on the boat. The food was delicious and abundant. It was a nice surprise to get such a great lunch -- it exceeded our expectations. The boat ride back was shorter -- 45 minutes. And then Vel drove us back to our hotel in Belize City. We really enjoyed our trip. It would have been 5 star except I think the boat was a little overcrowded which made it tight to sit for a long period of time and after lunch, we were only given about 15 minutes to tour the gift shops and the museum and use the facilities. It seemed somewhat rushed at the end of the day. I would definitely recommend the trip to those wishing to see Mayan ruins.

What a great experience! Make sure to take your camera. You'll want to record the wildlife and the history. A beautiful country with wonderful people. We had the time of our lives.

Great trip! Loved all of the aspects of the tour with one exception. The boat ride back can be quite windy as you are at full tilt on the jet boat. Loved Lamanai and all of the wild life we saw. Our tour guide Vel was great.

The trip was great! The river ride was a lot of fun, and Lamanai was amazing. The guide, Vel, was ery enthusiastic, and a lot of fun. The only thing that could have been better is he could have told us more about the Mayans and what we were seeing instead of getting off on crazy tangents that didn't make much sense. All in all, a great trip, and I highly recommend it.
