Belize: Lamanai Mayan Ruins

Lamanai complex of Mayan ruins is probably the most spectacular in Belize. It takes 1.5 hours to get here by a speedboat up river (quite a joyride and the boat takes steep turns). The complex has several pyramids in the midst of untouched jungle, so you feel like a tomb raider. This was one of the major centers of Mayan civilization, and only 1% (one) has been excavated so far. The pyramid with faces was the most impressive as was the view from the tallest pyramid
