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.

The journey to the remote Lamanai Outpost Lodge takes you past Mennonite villages and upstream by motor launch along the beautiful New River Lagoon, on whose picturesque banks the lodge sits. Tangled bromeliads hang from tropical trees providing the thatched cottages with shade.

The area is rich in flora and fauna, particularly bird life. There are 18 palm thatched cabins, each with a small veranda, leading up a heavily wooded hillock to the main open-plan cabaña that houses the restaurant, bar, lounge area and library. 
Rooms are comfortable, if a little dark, with a ceiling fan, a small seating area and private bathroom. The restaurant provides a limited menu with excellent and hearty food. Next to the cottages are the Mayan ruins of Lamanai, with almost 700 structures covering some 950 acres – it's well worth spending an afternoon here exploring.
Activities include canoeing and specialised guided walks either in the forest or around the partially excavated ruins. The young and enthusiastic guides can also arrange caiman-spotting trips at night.

What our clients say

97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.

"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."
