What better way to explore the ancient sacred site of the Maya than on horseback through the jungle along the lush riverbank of the Mopan River?The tour begins at, a family-owned horseback riding establishment where over 45 horses call home. When you arrive, meet your local Belizean guide for the day and then mount your horses to depart! The ride to Xunantunich includes a well maintained trail through a large private farm and along the banks of the Mopan River in the village of San Jose Succotz. You will cross the river on an ancient hand-operated ferry, and then ride your horse up to Xunantunich. When you arrive, prepare to dismount and let your horse rest while you can spend as much time as you desire exploring Xunantunich by foot. Afterwards, we will ride to the nearby Benny’s Kitchen for a delicious lunch of traditional Belizean dishes before returning to the stables. This horseback ride includes lots of nature viewing of local birds and plants.
