Orange Walk Belize Jungle Vacations
While the northwestern Orange Walk District is most well known for sugar cane, visitors can find an amazing array of tropical birds and several excellent Belize jungle lodges, plus the Lamanai Mayan ruins, the longest continuously occupied Mayan ruin in Belize - since 1500 BC.
Belize vacation travelers to the Orange Walk District can not only visit Mayan ruins (Colha and La Milpa in addition to Lamanai), but also take a night-time crocodile safari, spot birds to their heart's content, horseback ride, hike and generally commune with nature in the area's lagoons and expansive jungle tracts, such as the Gallon Jug Estate, managed by Programme for Belize.
And, two exceptional jungle lodges are found in Belize's Orange Walk Distrct - Chan Chich, set in a Mayan ruin deep in the Gallon Jug Estate near the Guatemala border, and Lamanai Outpost Lodge, located on the hills of the New River Lagoon, with excellent birding, crocodiles, sunset cruises -- and, of course, the mysterious Lamanai ruins, located within walking distance from the Lodge.
