Lamanai is the Mayan word for "submerged crocodile". The site's name was recorded by a missionary in the 17th Century. It is one of the only site retaining its original name. Most other sites derive their names from the archaeologist who discovered or investigated them. Archaeologist Dr. David Prendergast, who worked at the site from 1974 to 1988, comments that the name helps to explain the numerous crocodile motifs at the site. Crocodile effigies appear on figurines, vessel decorations, and on the large head-dress on a limestone mask at one of the principal structures at the site.

Lamanai lies on the New River Lagoon, and the most spectacular manner to travel to the site is by boat. Numerous species of water birds live along the river and lagoon.

Tikal Mayan Ruins (Guatemala)

Seen in many movies like 'Apocolypto' and '2012', is this magnificent Mayan ruin of ancient times. The name Tikal may be derived from ti ak'al in the Yucatec Maya language; it is said to be a relatively modern name meaning "at the waterhole". The name was apparently applied to one of the site's ancient reservoirs by hunters and travelers in the region. It has alternatively been interpreted as meaning "the place of the voices" in the Itza Maya language. At any rate, Tikal is not the ancient name for the site but rather the name adopted shortly after its discovery in the 1840s. Hieroglyphic inscriptions at the ruins refer to the ancient city as Yax Mutal or Yax Mutul, meaning "First Mutal". The Tikal National Park covers an area of 575.83 square kilometres (222.33 sq mi). It was created on 26 May 1955 under the auspices of the Instituto de AntropologĂ­a y Historia and was the first protected area in Guatemala.

The ruins lie among the tropical rainforests of northern Guatemala that formed the cradle of lowland Maya civilization. The city itself was located among abundant fertile upland soils, and may have dominated a natural east—west trade route across the Yucatan Peninsula. Conspicuous trees at the Tikal park include gigantic kapok (Ceiba pentandra) the sacred tree of the Maya; Tropical cedar (Cedrela odorata), and Honduras Mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla). Regarding the fauna, agouti, white-nosed coatis, gray foxes, spider monkeys, howler monkeys, harpy eagles, falcons, wild turkeys, guans, toucans, green parrots and leafcutter ants can be seen there regularly. Jaguars, jaguarundis, and cougars are also said to roam in the park. For centuries this city was completely covered under jungle. Undoubtedly, this site is one of the places you must see while in Central America. Let us take you there!

Our guests are picked up from their resort or hotel as early as 6am to take a flight over to the mainland.
