Just spent an overnight trip at Lamanai Outpost Lodge.

Excellent, personalised service!

Beautiful tropical and exotic landscaping. The Black Orchids (national flower of Belize) were in full bloom.

Accommodations were basic and very, very clean.

Food was filling, tasty and nicely presented.

The surrounding jungle was thrilling. The resident howler monkey put in an appearance at about 4 a.m. What an eerie sound... quite exciting.

The lake tour was interesting, with a knowledgable guide.

The ruins are just a short hike away.

One of the best wine lists I have seen in Belize.

Would I recommend this to a friend? You bet.

Mark and Monique made us welcome and comfortable ... like visiting old friends.

They offer birding tours, night time "spot light" tours, tours to the ruins and much more.

A huge thumbs up!
