A long established, well-run, family-owned lodge with rustic-chic, comfortable cabanas set on a huge 28-mile freshwater lagoon and right by Lamanai Maya ruins, one of Belize’s most important sites. Plenty of on-site activities and excursions are available, and you might even see Menonites (similar to Amish) on their horse-drawn buggies. The lodge is ideal for wildlife and waterfowl lovers perhaps with an interest in Mayan civilisation.
All activities are on-site or very near the lodge. The package generally includes two standard activities per night’s stay, as follows: jungle dawn guided nature walk; sunrise canoe expedition; visit to Lamanai ruins; Maya medicine trail; sunset cocktail cruise; spotlight nocturnal wildlife safari; night nature walk. If you are not on a package, all activities are optional.

Birds including various raptors and kingfishers, jabiru stork, keel-billed toucan and water birds such as northern jacana, Morelet’s crocodile, manatee, neotropical otter, northern racoon, bats, mantled howler monkey. The sight of reflective crocodile eyes shining at you in the night is unforgettable as they hunt the water birds such as jacana. Jaguar and other wild cats are occasionally seen near the lodge but it’s rare.
If you are not on a package, all activities mentioned above are optional.
Number of rooms
The lodge is very family-friendly. Watch out for bank-dwelling wildlife and Menonite children swimming in the New River on your long initial boat trip to the lodge, which is an adventure in itself.
