After Breakfast and a break, meet your guide for the Lamanai Temple tour just a few minutes walk away from the Lodge!  In the company of an expert guide explore the mysterious jungle-shrouded temples of this once powerful 3000 year old civilization where nature and ancient history coexist. The ruins of Lamanai encompass over 700 structures, a visitor’s center and museum.

If your preference is a night time excursion, rather than a morning excursion, then the River Spotlight Safari awaits! After dinner, climb aboard a comfortable custom built river safari boat and head out into the night. This exciting adventure gives you the opportunity to encounter anything from the Morelet’s crocodile to the elusive and endangered jaguar.
