Exploring the Caribbean on the World’s First Hybrid Ship
Ship. Boat. Bus. Boat. Walk. That’s how I made it to Lamanai, an ancient Mayan city reservation in Northern Belize that was the longest occupied of the Mayan world (3000 years). In Mayan, Lamanai means “submerged crocodile,” which fits as it sits along the lush and green crocodile waters of the New River that took us there. Climbing a stepped Mayan temple, like Mask Temple, is a bucket-lister for me. Mask Temple houses a tomb and is flanked on the left and right by two faces (fiberglass replicas of the originals). The original faces are made of limestone and sit behind them for protection. As a kid, I always imagined an Indiana Jones-esq adventure at a Mayan temple.
