The Ancient Mayan Temple of Lamanai is located along the river banks of The New River, Orange Walk District, Belize. Known as the longest continuously occupied site in all of MesoAmerica. Lamanai pronounced Lama'an/ayin means "submerged crocodile." The structures found at Lamanai are some of the oldest in Belize and many believe that this site was of moderate in size dated as early as 1500 BC.

Some of the newer temples were occupied as recent as the 18th century AD. This means that Lamanai was occupied for a little over 3200 years! With an estimated population of about 34,000.  Lamanai's trading over the boarders of Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and Belize. Today only 5% of the 800 buildings within the complex have been excavated and explored.

  • Lamanai was awe inspiring. Our guide Hilberto was awesome. Our group of 4 had a dedicated guide for the entire day. He picked us up at the hotel and stayed with us all day. He was very knowledgeable of the history of Belize and Lamanai. Seeing the ruins and learning about the history was the highlight of the day. The Baboon Encounter was good as well. The trails were flooded by the river, but the personnel at the black howler monkey reserve were able to call the monkeys to us. We were able to interact with the howler monkeys up close and personal. The lunch that was provided was really good!

  • The tour operator, AyinHa, was very accommodating of specific needs we had for pick up and drop off, they were fabulous to work with. The Lamanai site is so awesome and the visit to the sanctuary was absolutely incredible. We got a chance to feed a little one some fruit right from our hands.

  • Fantastic tour! Our guides were knowledgable and friendly, the staff were welcoming at Ayun Ha, and the tour was very fun.
