Explore the Ancient Mayan City of Xunantunich on a Horse!

What a better way to discover the ancient Mayan city of Xunantunich than to riding through the jungle on a horse! Starting the tour off at a local stable, you will first meet your riding guide, then mount your horse and head towards Xunantunich, where the route takes you along a well maintained trail through a large private farm, along the banks of the Mopan River, in the village of San Jose Succotz.

Here you will cross the river on an ancient (yet well maintained and very safe) hand-operated ferry and then ride your horse up to Xunantunich. When you arrive prepare to dismount and let your horse rest and you spend as much time as you desire exploring the city’s temples and plazas on foot. Afterward, we will ride to nearby Benny’s Kitchen for a delicious lunch of traditional Belizean dishes or enjoy lunch at the farm before returning to the stables. The horseback ride includes lots of nature viewing of local birds and plants.
