Lamanai is an ancient Mayan city that was inhabited sometime in 1500 BC. The name Lamanai comes from the Mayan word La'man'ain which means 'submerged crocodile'. This Mayan site is one of the most visited Mayan ruins in Belize due to its rich history and impressive Mayan architecture. It is the only Mayan site in Belize accessed by boat.
Begin an excursion to Lamanai with a boat safari along the New River, which was once used as a Mayan trade route. On the way to Lamanai, you will see an abundance of exotic fauna and vegetation. You'll see protected Morelet crocodiles, spider monkeys, insect-eating bats that feed on insects, green iguanas and porcupines, a variety of herons.
