Lamanai Outpost was the most wonderful. Everyone there was so knowledgeable and warm and friendly. Gorgeous sunset & sunrise cruises. The guides had a wealth of knowledge and it was all just wonderful!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Make sure you have enough mosquito spray if you are visiting in November
and long sleeve tops!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


I hope so. We found the Belizian people very environmentally conscious. As
everywhere there was some plastic on some of the beaches but it’s an endemic problem not just Belize.

A wonderful vacation and a great introduction to Central America.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Black Rock Lodge's passionate commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainable operation is evident in every aspect of your stay. The electricity for the beautifully situated, riverfront cabins is supplied by a custom hybrid system consisting of micro-hydro and solar power and they practice energy conservation throughout the Lodge. 100% of water use is supplied by a nearby mountain spring and the Lodge is able to reduce water use through the installation of water conserving appliances. In addition, all of the wastewater is processed through "constructed wetlands" which use plants and natural aerobic bacterial activity to more completely clean the water, leaving no water contamination at all.

The waste from Lamanai Outpost is strictly controlled . Waste water is used for irrigation and potable water is treated via double pass reverse osmosis, ultra violet & ozonation. The lodge established, and helps maintain the community solid waste landfill site and they use a small but increasing amount of solar, transitioning over to LED lighting so as to reduce power consumption.
In 1992 the Lamanai Field Research Center was established. Funded by partner and guest contributions, the center is involved in a variety of research and conservation, outreach and educationally focused programmes on threatened & endangered species such as : Jaguars and large cats, various species of turtles, crocodiles, bats & birds.

People

Lamanai Outpost lodge is a very small, remotely situated family owned and operated jungle lodge.
Many of the staff have been with the lodge for over a decade and although women comprise over 50% of the staff, all of whom are from the local communities of Indian Church, Indian Creek & San Carlos, the lodge is very much an equal opportunity employer.
The local communities provide much of the lodge’s produce and the Indian Church Woman’s group provides all of the staff meals.

The Lamanai Tour Guide Association (LTGA) was founded in 1992 to provide training opportunities to the local community which now boasts over 20 qualified local guides. The association is highly regarded and often partners with the Belize Tourist Board in the running of general and specialized tour guide training courses.
