Mayan Jungle and Tikal- horseback riding in Belize

Mayan Jungle and Tikal Ride

Ride Overview

For many people, the regular 6-day Mayan Jungle Ride is not enough. With this itinerary, you have the option to stay for additional two days to explore the inspiring Mayan ruins at Tikal.

During your five days of this horseback riding vacation in Belize each trek will offer a different vista and unique experience.  Canter through rain forest bearing lush foliage and tropical bird-life.  Observe toucans, hummingbirds, tanagers, orioles, motmots, warblers, parrots, raptors and maybe even catch a glimpse of the rare Keel-billed motmot.  Climb over the mountains of the Pine Ridge Reserve to destinations including waterfalls and ancient Mayan caves and ruins.

Then take advantage of a day to explore the World Heritage Site of Tikal National Park, one of the major areas of Mayan Civilization. It was occupied from the 6th century BCE until the 10th century CE and its modern discovery and renovation has added much to the understanding of the Mayas. See these momentous historical ruins firsthand.

Return each evening to a comfortable cabana, a hearty meal, and the warm hospitality of your hosts.
