At Bomba Village, a private bus will take you through jungle, villages and sugar cane fields to Tower Hill, where your tour of the New River begins. As you make your way towards Lamanai, you will encounter animals indigenous to the area such as river otters, turtles, crocodiles and monkeys.
Once at Lamanai you are served a tasty picnic lunch of local fare. Then you hike through dense jungle and explore the ancient maya temples that majestically perch on the water’s edge. At the end of the day, as you make your way back to San Pedro, you will realize that your experience to Lamanai will linger with you as a truly Beyond Ordinary experience.
Lamanai is the Spanish historic name for Lama’ an/ayin, which means “submerged crocodile.” The Royal Ontario Museum directed a archaeological research project at Lamanai between 1974 and 1986 during which over 940 structures were mapped. A long, unbroken sequence of Maya occupation at Lamanai occured through Preclassic and Classic times, beginning by roughly 1500 BC.
