Lamanai - The ancient Mayan city of Lamanai 'Submerged Crocodile' lays mostly undiscovered on the banks of the New River in the center of Belize. Climb the steps of a 100-foot tall temple just as the Maya did in 100 B.C. More than 700 structures have been mapped at Lamanai, but most have yet to be uncovered. Full day tours leave from San Pedro by boat and give you a chance to see plenty of Belize's exotic wildlife. Mangroves, orchids, crocodiles, birds and monkeys are only some of the things you may see on the way to Lamanai. Half-day tours are also available by flying into Orange Walk.
