Lamanai Outpost Lodge

This secluded location, deep in unadulterated wilderness, allows for some truly remarkable activities and adventures. It's not surprising that guests come so far out of their way to experience Lamanai Outpost Lodge.

Out of the twenty double thatch-roofed cabanas, only two have air conditioning. The ventilation in the cabanas, however, is excellent with a cool breeze from the lagoon and strong ceiling fans in every cabana. Most cabanas have one queen bed and one double bed, and the modern amenities include electricity, hot and cold water, and a mini bar.
