Lamanai Ruins & River Expeditions Depart from our Marina after breakfast, Board Riverboat and head down the scenic New River. Your guide will make periodic stops to introduce you ... moreto the areas abundant Flora and Fauna and maybe a Crocodile or two. The waterway opens up to The New River Lagoon. One-half mile on the right reigns the ancient city of Lamanai. A walking tour of the main plazas with towering pyramids and ancient history will transport you back into that mystical era. Enjoy some refreshments and board your riverboat en route back to the hotel where a scrumptious local lunch awaits.

Lamanai (Maya for Submerged Crocodile) is one of the largest sites in Belize and is the Maya City with the longest period of occupancy lasting over 3,000 years. The central area contains eight main groups of buildings, including a much-photographed temple featuring a pair of unique masks rising 15 feet tall. Each has been sculpted from a block of limestone instead of being molded from plaster over a stone which was the usual practice in the Maya world.

Lamanai is a Mayan archaeological located in the Orange Walk district, Northern Belize. It rests in tranquillity in the jungle on the banks of the New River Lagoon, a river with numerous ... morecrocodiles. Lamanai translated from Maya to English means submerged crocodile.

This historical landmark was once a major Mayan city acting as a ceremonial and a trade center with its largest temple (The High Temple) standing at 108 feet (33 m) above the plaza level. The Jaguar Temple and Mask Temple are other significant temples on site. Numerous carvings with profound meaning can be sited throughout the entire site mostly visible on the Mask Temple. Lamanai has much more to offer other than its temple, such as its river banks and jungle bursting with wildlife. Tombs of high-status Mayas are positioned high on the Maya ruins.

We take a 45 minutes drive by road and then we take a boat ride for 25 miles along the river where you will have a chance to see crocodiles, manatees, and birds. We stop along the way for any animal that Mother Nature provides for us. Once at the Lamanai site, we walk about the site for about 40 minutes in a circle and have lunch, then head back to the city.

For cruise ship passengers, the tour departs from the Tourism Village at Terminal 1 in Belize City at the dock where the cruise ship tender boat drops off their passengers. A representative from D King Adventure Tours will be there waiting for you with a sign with your name on it.

For overnight guests, we pick you up at your hotel or from a water taxi. A representative from D King Adventure Tours will be waiting for you outside with a sign with your name on it.
