Lamanai, Belize

This is the High Temple at Lamanai in Belize.  It was the tallest pyramid on site.  These were built around 100 BC.

I actually did climb to near the top of the pyramid at the High Temple.

This is the Jaguar Temple at Lamani.  There is a Jaguar sculpture on both sides of the pyramid.

Here is the ball court at Lamanai where the Mayans would play a game that is a cross between soccer and basketball with a rubber ball.

    I have been to Mayan Ruins in Mexico, but in Belize, I was able to climb up the pyramids.  Lamanai was a Mayan settlement in Belize.
