Lamanai Outpost Lodge

Lamanai Outpost Lodge is situated on the banks of a 28 mile long spring fed lagoon amid the remnants of a major Mayan city. The lodge is surrounded by an incredible variety of habitats that facilitate unsurpassed nature-based and soft-adventure activities that depart right from your cabaña’s doorstep. You’ll feel like Indiana Jones here climbing jungle clad ruins and hiking through the jungle as dawn breaks and the mist rises through the canopy.  In the company of a naturalist guide you’ll learn about the intricacies of a habitat that is home to creatures as diverse as the jaguar, the impressive Black Howler monkey, the Jaguarundi and the vividly-colored Keel-Billed toucan.Lamani is completely immersed in nature as the nearest lodge or hotel is over 70 miles away.

The lodge has just 20 thatch roofed rustically elegant wooden cabanas simply decorated but to a high standard, with 24 hour electricity and hot water. Your choice is between lagoon or garden view cabanas. The standard cabanas have ceiling fans and well ventilated with large screened in windows. There are 2 luxury suites with air-conditioning. Delicious freshly cooked meals are served in the open air restaurant, which has beautiful views out over the lagoon.

Lamanai keeps trip numbers to between 6 and 10 participants so the chances of spotting animals and birds significantly increases. Unlike many other lodges who share the same area and attractions, Lamanai Outpost is very much in a world of its own. At Lamanai Lodge you can choose from a range of activities offered. The earliest departs before breakfast to catch the raucous action of the awakening jungle. The latest depart after dinner to track some of the nocturnal wildlife surrounding the lodge. Two activities are included in the package per night's stay. There are also some non-standard activities, which are not included and must be arranged at the lodge. These include partaking in some on-going research projects undertaken by the lodge.Whether you are exploring the Maya ruins or watching nature awaken as the sun rises over Crab-Catcher Lagoon, it is almost guaranteed that it will be just you, your guide and a few friends that you have made at the Outpost.
