When the Spaniards arrived in this area, they found the Maya people still occupying ancient Lamanai (“submerged crocodile”), and found out that this site dated back to pre-classic times – therefore one of the oldest occupied kingdoms of the Maya.

Set on the banks of the great New river Lagoon, this area is home to howler and spider monkey, iguana, crocodile and dozens of exotic bird species. Accessible by wetland safari boat ride from the village of Lemonal is in itself and amazing tour.

The stone face of a Mayan deity looks mutely to the west on one temple, casting stone eyes on the setting sun. The tour circuit takes guests through other plazas with temples reaching to the heavens – again, a reminder of the cosmological religion of this ancient civilization, which saw the creation of both the short (260 days) and the long count (365 days) calendars a couple thousand years ago by sacred shaman priest/scientists living and working in the rainforests of Meso America.

After lunch, served under the thatch huts by the lagoon, board your riverboats for the water journey back to your tour bus.
