Welcome to the Lamanai Archaeological Reserve, a captivating Maya ruin in northern Belize that offers a unique and adventurous experience accessible by boat. Your journey begins with a vehicle ride followed by a fantastic boat excursion across the New River Lagoon, setting the stage for an unforgettable visit to the Lamanai archaeological site.

At Lamanai, your expert tour guide knows exactly which path to take, leading you through the lush rainforest while introducing you to the diverse river birds, howler monkeys, and even the occasional crocodile along the way. As you approach the vast lagoon, the imposing High Temple rises above the jungle canopy, offering a mesmerizing sight of Lamanai Mayan ruins.

Before exploring the site, take some time to visit the museum, where you can gain valuable insights into the rich history and significance of Lamanai Mayan Ruins. The archaeological reserve features three majestic temples, each constructed during different periods, adding layers of historical significance to this ancient city in Northern Belize.

What is the best time of the year to visit the Lamanai Archaeological Reserve? The best time to visit the Lamanai Archaeological Reserve is during the dry season, which typically extends from late November to April. The weather is generally more favorable, with lower chances of rain, making it easier to explore the site comfortably. However, visitors should check weather forecasts before planning their trip to ensure optimal conditions.

The Mask Temple (Structure N9) made this archaeological site famous for its enormous carved stone facades. The Temple was built first, and some 600 years later, the Mask was added. The mask was skillfully carved from limestone, giving the ancient city its icon look, and is a remarkable sight to behold during your visit.

The Jaguar Temple or Lamanai Structure N10 is a stepped pyramid structure, about 12 feet shorter than the high Temple. You will see the angular Jaguar heads in front of the temple. Your knowledgeable guide from Belize Adventure Tours will be able to explain the significance and symbolism behind these intricate carvings.

The High Temple offers the most breathtaking view if you climb all the steps to the top. The High Temple’s highest exposed height of 33 meters (108 ft) can be climbed in the presence of our tour guide from Belize Adventure Tours, who will ensure you have a safe and enriching experience.
