Lamanai is one of the longest enduring Maya cities.

Lamanai is located on the New River about an hours boat ride from Orange Walk. When visiting Sarteneja it makes a nice day trip to catch the 6.30 AM bus to Orange Walk, leave for Lamanai on the boat from "Hotel de la Feunte" at 9.00 AM and arrive back at 5.30 PM just in time for the bus back to Sarteneja. I have been on this tour arranged through "Hotel de la Feunte" several times and can highly recommend it. 

Below is a pictorial essay of this wonderful the trip.
