Boasting the third tallest Maya structure in Belize, Lamanai Archeological Reserve lies 24 scenic miles south of Orange Walk Town up the New River, or 36 miles by road.
Enveloped in a densely emerald expanse on the banks of the New River Lagoon, it’s no surprise that the only residents of Lamanai—translating to ‘submerged crocodile’ in Maya—are just that.
While the trip upriver is a nature-lover’s haven in itself, it’s your inner archeologist that’ll be aroused on arrival to one of Belize’s largest ceremonial centers.
Besides, being amongst 12 towering buildings adorned with crocodile motifs inside this unusually constructed site in the Maya world tends to have this effect.

Today, time stands still: there is no electricity, no cars and no grocery shops. But on this quiet oasis, you can reclaim the real by reducing life to indulgent essentials against a glistening Caribbean Sea by day, and some of the best stargazing by night.
Be overzealous in pursuit of a naturally socially distant experience, where the day can start with a solo paddle at sunrise to catch breakfast, only to grill it just minutes later. Or just as easily, you can lazy the day away in a colorful hammock to the soundtrack of wind in coconut fronds.
