Air-Conditioning: All cabanas are air-conditioned, but guests can decide if they need it. The lodge has observed that many of its guests prefer open windows to enjoy the nighttime noises of the jungle and the natural cooling provided by a thatch-roofed cabana. They have structured their generators, electrical system, and rates to offer air-conditioning as an optional feature that can be added at the lodge or during the adventure booking process.

Internet Access: Complimentary & available throughout the lodge – access for children can be controlled.

Cellphone Roaming: Most phones and portable devices will work at the lodge if you have activated ‘international roaming’ – reception is very good.

Television: Limited to Honeymoon Cabana which has a king bed, double shower & a Netflix-capable Smart-TV. 

Private and Remote: The lodge is private and caters exclusively to its in-house guests – our closest neighboring hotel is over 30 miles away.

No Day Trips Needed: Day trips are where you load the family into a van for what is often a lengthy drive to and back from an attraction – this is a costly & time-wasting process.  At Lamanai, all your adventures happen within minutes of your cabana and will be planned to where they are almost always crowd-free & private.

Meals and Dietary Requirements: Guests will find their meals to be tasty, freshly prepared, and plentiful. The lodge can accommodate special dietary needs, such as vegetarian, gluten-free, no peanuts, pescatarian, vegan, or Kosher, at no additional cost with advance notice. All meals include purified water, juice or squash, coffee, and tea.

Mobility Issues: Know that we are situated on a hillside where you will encounter a gradient & steps when moving around the lodge. 

Drinking Water: Complimentary bottled water is carried in our boats & vehicles and is always available at the lodge.  Purified water is used to prepare our meals, it is also used to make ice & is served with all meals. It is readily available in the dining room to refill your water bottles.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
