Jungle lodge beside ancient Mayan ruins, in the midst of diverse wildlife habitats. Choose from a wide variety of adventurous excursions within the natural surroundings.

Located two minutes from the Lamanai Maya ruins on the banks of a remote jungle lake, this award-winning jungle lodge is a favourite with families, couples and those seeking adventure. 

The area is rich in flora and fauna, particularly bird life with over 400 species recorded. There are 16 air-conditioned thatch-roof cabanas; single cabanas with king beds, double cabanas and special family cabanas are available. Amenities include in-cabana wifi, a refrigerator with complimentary bottled water, an electronic safe, plenty of US style outlets, ceiling fans and a private bath with endless hot water.

Rooms are comfortable and lighting is kept to a minimum so as to not attract insects. The nearby main lodge houses reception, bar and a beautiful open-air restaurant which provides a limited menu with delicious, hearty food. 

Activities include canoeing, boat & vehicle tours and specialised guided walks in the surrounding forest or around the well-excavated ruins. The enthusiastic guides can also arrange spotlight river safaris, night-walks and crocodile-spotting trips at night.

What our clients say

  • "A real gem of a place, fantastic location, wonderful knowledgeable rangers, happy, helpful staff. Great food, fantastic wildlife and ruins. Boat trips were great fun and amazing. We loved it. Lamanai lodge was exceptional. The three nights were ideal as an introduction to jungle wildlife and with Mayan ruins as an added bonus. We did see a large range of animals, birds and reptiles over the whole holiday but it was the rangers here that set it apart, as well as the position of the lodge. The sunset cruise and other excursions are a must."

  • “Excellent and knowledgeable guides (especially Carlos - to be commended). Delightful staff, eager to please - no pretence to be something it wasn’t”

  • "Everything was great! Although maybe some of the experiences at Lamanai Outpost Lodge will stay with us the longest, and not just because we went there last!”
