#121553 - 04/25/06 09:18 PM Lamanai vs. Zoo Day Trip
kelly d Offline
Hubby and I will be in AC in July. If we had to choose between taking a day trip to the Belize Zoo or doing the trip that goes up the river to Lamanai, which would you choose and why? Hubby thinks he's Joe Photographer (buying him the digital camera for Xmas a few years ago was a BIG mistake!), and I just like to observe my surroundings (as long as there are NO TEENAGERS I'll be fine). Suggestions?

Lamanai is an amazing visit - the trip itself is great fun and the ruins are spectacular. Go with a good guide and it's a fun day with lots of learning and good food thrown in.

I've not been to the zoo, have heard it's very interesting.

The zoo is a great place but for something that you will remember for the rest of your life Lamanai is your choice.

Two totally different experiences. You can see the zoo easily in 90 minutes or less. And, it's not the stereotypical US type presentation either. Personally, I'd not make that a day trip stop, but save it for a stop off on a multi day mainland visit.

Take Law's & Simon's advice - Lamanai, definitely. Great photo ops for the hubby. Wonderful scenery to/at/from the river drop off. Ruins set in the jungle, lush tropical foliage,howler monkeys in the trees above your head ( watch where you stand, unless you have a "rain hat" wink ..it doesn't get much better.

LAMANAI!!!! Why? Breakfast, boat ride, Bomba, the magic school bus, belikin & rum punch, wildlife, lunch and the ruins.

Everyone going to Lamanai on that day.
A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

Not even close, Lamanai. There are some cool animals at the zoo but it is rather small by U.S. standards. Lamanai and the boat trip (and the rum punch on the way back) is incredible.

Ditto what Belikin Bill said!

Kelly we did Lamanai three times and enjoyed it. I agree with all of the above comments. We have always used SEArious Tours but if you do a search there are numerous guides and everyone has their favorites. You can easily book it when you get down there.
Have fun.
