Having visited most of the major ruins in BZ,as well as some of the smaller, I vote to make 3 in a row - Lamanai, and book Daniel Nunez, Tanisha Tours. The man is unbeatable! Assuming of course, you are considering a daytrip from SP.

Lamanai, even the long boat ride is a great nature trip. Tourist ask me about Birding tours every day. I tell them 'Lamanai' for pristine canopied rain forest habitat, you also pass thru mangrove river habitat and riverine habitat. Best ruins and artifacts on display. There are half a dozen operators in San Pedro that do the trip and all seem to do the same basic Lamanai trip.I couldn't say one guide was better than the other and I've done the trip with them all at one time or another in my 20 years of birding by boat. Tikal is a pain in the butt to get to and no better than Lamanai
