America - Belize - Lamanai

A few pictures from the unbelievable place, the Maya ruins of Lamanai in Belize! Maya ruins less than 200 years old - already swallowed by, and still mostly hidden in the rainforest. 5 out of 700 constructions are partly excavated  - a lot of work to do for future archeologists at this place! Magic atmosphere!
