We caught a fast boat to Lamanai during our stay in Orange Walk, Belize. The steamy day was a trip highlight: weaving along the New River and hugging curves like a bat-out-of-hell, debarking at an ancient Mayan city that was a hive of activity for 3200 years. If you haven't noticed, I love the jungle and almost everything in it.

Belize is so raw and so clear and so in-your-face. There’s an opportunity to see something about human nature that you can’t really see in a politer society, because the purpose of society is to mask ourselves from each other.
Baby howler monkeys.
We buzzed back with happy smiles and hands full of rum punch.

Beautiful Lamanai! I really enjoyed my trip there a few years ago.
Wow, looking down those stairs brought back memories of doing just that on an ancient Mayan ruin. Can't remember which one. :-)
Belize was one of my favorite place to visit. I like the ruins and the monkeys. Wonderful photos. Enjoy your day, have a great week!
What an interesting place.
Belize looks fascinating
We loved Belize sooo much and we did stay in OrangeWalk for a few days at the end of our visit there ... I remember the pyramid. I should try to digitize my pictures of some of our earlier trips (wayyy earlier!) before time fades them into obscurity.
What a fabulous trip! I love the monkeys and those old stone ruins. You really get to experience history when you visit that country!
wonderful wild life....
thank you for sharing beautiful photos
Sharon - I have only been to Belize once, and I think the quote by John McAfee sums it up well! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!
Belize seems to be a wonderful place. Would love to travel some day!
Would love to visit this part of the world. Thank you for sharing your photos.
Beautiful photos, but my favorite is the one looking down toward the base of the pyramid. I have difficulty capturing the depth in some of my photos. You did a great job with that.
Even the snakes are colorful in Belize! That's a country I've always wanted to see. It'll have to be in my next life, or when my Spirit soars to the heavens. Until then, I appreciate photos taken by travelers such as yourself. Thanks, Sharon!
Thank you for sharing.
looks like you have had a fascinating trip. I haven't been to this part of the world, so thankyou for taking us along, and for the link up. Stay safe and happy travels.
What an amazing visit, thank you for sharing with us,since there's no traveling this year.

It's great to see you at 'My Corner of the World this week! Thanks for linking up with us.
Amazing how they carve into rock. Looks like a nice adventure.
That looks like a great time. I love your pictures.
I've never been, but looks like an awesome place to visit and explore. I remember seeing a documentary on McAfee. Weird indeed! Thanks for taking us along on your travel adventure!
Those steps look steep! It does look like an awesome place to see. Loving the monkeys :)
Those Maya ruins are amazing to see, Sharon! I would not do well in a hot and humid jungle so this will be the only way I'd see them
