Trip Report Volcanogirl Goes to Belize

Jump to last reply

Thanks to everyone who encouraged us to go to Belize and to give Lamanai a try. We're back from our trip and had a fantastic time. We loved the Lamanai Outpost Lodge and paired it with island time at Victoria House. Both were wonderful, and we had an amazing time.

Belize is a direct two hour flight for us, so very easy to get to. We had prearranged with Lamanai Outpost Lodge to pick us up at the airport. After spending 45 minutes going through immigration and getting our luggage, we emerged from the airport to find Calvin standing there holding a sign with our names written on it. He was very friendly. The heat and humidity were pretty intense so we were really happy to get into his air conditioned van. He even had cold bottled water for us - awesome. He drove us to the LOL office which was a short distance away and said we would wait there for a bit until it was time to leave. We decided to change into cooler clothes for the boat ride in. Outside temp was 88 degrees and sunny. I was thrilled to have good weather and hoped we would see some good wildlife along the river. When it was time to go, Calvin drove us for about 45 minutes to get to the boat docking area.
