Fodor's Review

Perched on a low hillside on the New River Lagoon within walking distance of the Lamanai ruins, this eco-lodge's well-designed thatch cabañas sit amid lovely gardens and have porches with lagoon views. Two of the cabañas have air-conditioning. There's a pricey, near all-inclusive plan with all meals, transfers, and activities, such as a crocodile encounter, included, from around BZ$1,400 double per night on a three-night package in-season. A room-only meal plan is also offered, but keep in mind that dining options in this remote area are very limited. The restaurant, Bushey's Place, serves simple but filling meals. A dock extends 130 feet into the lagoon and is a good place for swimming. Bird-watching, crocodile spotting, and also cultural tours, such as to meet Mennonite families, are offered.
