How to Do the Lamanai Mayan Ruins and River Tour from Ambergris Caye

The ruins of Lamani are one of the largest and most impressive Mayan centers in Belize. Measuring almost 1000 acres in size, the metropolis of Lamanai is unique because the original name for the city has been preserved, derived from a Mayan term for “submerged crocodile”.
