Mayan Jungle Ride- enjoy tropical paradise while horseback riding in Belize

Mayan Jungle Ride

Ride Overview

Enjoy a tropical paradise on this horseback riding tour in Belize. The diversity of scenery and activities on this ride makes it a wonderfully relaxing holiday. The area has numerous Mayan ruins which have lain covered by the jungle for more than a thousand years. You will pass un-excavated and partially excavated archaeological sites and see ancient pottery shards in ceremonial caves. Lunch most days will be taken beside secluded natural rock pools at the base of beautiful tropical waterfalls, and of course there will be time for swimming. There are some chances for trots and canters, but the terrain does not lend itself to much fast riding. You will, however, have plentiful opportunities to view bird life on this riding tour in Belize, from toucans and hummingbirds to marmots. This opportunity for wildlife viewing, combined with the fascinating historical sites make this destination uniquely suited for a riding vacation.

The fully sustainable eco lodge is located on 105 acres of Nature Reserve, and is a fully operational citrus farm, with a half mile of riverfront along the Macal River.

Meals & Drink

A variety of foods are served including Mexican, Tex-Mex, rice and beans, homemade tortillas and breads, and local Belize fare.
