We visited this site on a shore excursion. We took a bus, boat ride, and then walked to get to the ruins. It sure was hot with lots of mosquitoes. The site was impressive. A few gift shops and a restroom near the boat dock....More
We joined a shore excursion from our ship to explore the Lamanai Archaeological Reserve. After riding a water shuttle to the port of Belize City, we rode in a comfortable air conditioned bus for about 1 hour to our first stop. Our 3 tour guides...More
We went last week and decided to take the Lamanai tour. We paid 75.00 each and felt it was very well worth it. We had to pay for the 7am water taxi to Belize port and the tour guide was there waiting for us. Our...More
Our 6th Mayan site to visit in Belize, this one was different in layout and access. Other sites were on hill tops. This was laid out along a lagoon. The trip by boat was very refreshing and scenic. The Temple of the Masks with the...More
After docking off the coast of Belize City, we took a shuttle boat to the Belize City port. There we met up with our shore excursion guides, Bernard and Tina, and boarded a very comfortable and air-conditioned coach for the one hour drive to edge...More
What a great excursion we started at Belize Port and took about an hour and 15 drive to a canal, and from canal took speed boat to Lamanai Reserve. The reserve is huge with multiple temple pyramids. I can't remember the largest ones name, but...More

I did an air tour to Lamanai with Amigos. My guide was Gilberto, who was knowledgeable and excellent. It was really hot and humid when we went, July 30th. We even saw some monkeys in trees. If staying on San Pedro, I recommend the tour...More
Our group went on an organized tour out of Belize City and it took from 8-3:30. The ruins themselves are quite complete and one pyramid is huge. As we were in Belize in July is was quite, quite hot, but it was still very interesting...More
We took our rental van from Ladyville to Orange Walk Town and then to Lamanai the next day. The roads are note the best, but the trip through the Mennonite community at Shipyard is eye-opening. Once you get to Lamanai, the parking areas and facilities...More

Yes. You specifically ask about tours other than those from cruises; there are many other organized tours that aren't affiliated with a cruise line that you could book yourself. Access to Lamanai is either by boat (a very scenic and enjoyable ride) or you rent a car and make a 90 minute drive on an unpaved road from Orange Walk Town. Most people use an organized tour and I think it's worth the money because you get an interpretation of the deep history of the site and you don't have the hassle of figuring out how to get there on bumpy roads. Hope that helps.
