The Orange Walk district encompasses the northern part of Belize, notable for its agricultural production and areas of dense jungle.


You can visit the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary, home to hundreds of water birds such as jabiru storks and snail kites or visit the Mayan site of Lamanai buried in the forest on the banks of the New River lagoon.

Lamanai & Chan Chich

For those looking to go to less accessible jungle lodges than those in Cayo and to have greater chances of spotting wildlife, both Lamanai and Chan Chich provide the perfect setting.
