What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
"A real gem of a place, fantastic location, wonderful knowledgeable rangers, happy, helpful staff. Great food, fantastic wildlife and ruins. Boat trips were great fun and amazing. We loved it. Lamanai lodge was exceptional. The three nights were ideal as an introduction to jungle wildlife and with Mayan ruins as an added bonus. We did see a large range of animals, birds and reptiles over the whole holiday but it was the rangers here that set it apart, as well as the position of the lodge. The sunset cruise and other excursions are a must."CT, Horsham

Everything was great!
"Everything was great! Although maybe some of the experiences at Lamanai Outpost Lodge will stay with us the longest, and not just because we went there last!”SW, South Ealing
