travel to Lamanai and experience a lost world!!!!
Lamanai is he Maya world for the submerge Crocodile. Located in the Northern region of Belize (Orange Walk Dist), on the banks of the 30 mile long New River Lagoon. Where an array of birds and many different wild life can be seen relaxing peacefully in their natural habitat. Lamanai was occupied continuously for over 3, 000 years from 1500B. C. to A. D. 1675. Eight major plazas; a ball court with the largest known ball court marker; a well-preserved mask of a Maya ruler emerging from a crocodile headdress; a 108 foot tall pyramid, one of the largest Preclassic structures in the Maya area. Found also at the site, are remains of a Christian "Indian Church", which revealed that in 1544, the Spaniards had built a church on top of a Maya temple. An excellent site museum with pottery vessels, flints and figurines many with representations of crocodile, indicating the importance of the crocodile to the people of Lamanai. So join me as I take you on a journey away from civilization & into the mysterious Maya world.
