A considerable amount of excavation and restoration has been going on at the site.

Dr. David Pendergast & his team from The University Of Toranto; have been working on this site for several years.

These photos of Plaza 2, 3, 4, and of Dr. Pendergast and his team working on site, were taken on May 19, 2003 at about 12:00 noon. These photos were taken about two weeks before the rainy season had really begun for 2003. Things were still pretty dry.

It is possible to fly into Belize City and then to go directly to a hotel of your choice and then to take a tour of Lamanai.

The Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport (IATA: BZE, ICAO: MZBZ) is the airport that serves Belize's largest city, Belize City. The airport will be going through major expansions to handle more planes and for the airport to bring in flights from Europe. The expansions are planned to be completed in 2015.

Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport is about a 30 minutes drive from Belize City's center, in Ladyville.

The best way to get to and from the city center is via taxi. Although an airport bus service exists, it is very infrequent and unreliable.

If you fly in to Belize City at the Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport, you can be transported to wherever you need to go.

You can also arrange air transfer reservations or pre paid tickets from the mainland of Belize to San Pedro, Ambergris Caye and then return back to the mainland of Belize.

Tropic Air and Maya Island Air fly to San Pedro, and Ambergris Caye.

Note: Lamanai is not the easiest place to reach if you're traveling without a guide. We strongly suggest a guide to get you there and to tour the site.

We have links to Priceline.Com on this page so you can arrange you flight and hotels. After confirming your hotel, I suggest contacting their Concierge Services ahead of your arrival, to arrange any tours of the area, all of this can be pre-arranged for you.

We do this all the time, when traveling in Belize. It is safe and it works!!! We have never experienced a problem doing it this way!
