Lamanai I would rate this a 4 star recommended if the access was a drive to type. A 26 mile boat ride up the New River is the easiest way to get to Lamanai. The journey may be as interesting as the ruins of Lamanai itself for the "birder" or a nature lover in general. Lamanai "submerged crocodile," is Maya ruin south of Iglesia India on the west bank on the northern end of the Rio Nuevo Lagoon, surrounded by pristine rainforest. Lamanai is the third largest archeological site in Belize. River access is the best approach and can be arranged in Orange Walk. This is a large site with hundreds of structures. Lamanai is truly ancient, it was sizable by 1500 BC and continued to be occupied until 1650 AD. Spanish conquistadors visited Lamanai on a regular bases.
