Our Horseback Riding tours will take you to a secluded and interesting destination of your choice. You can ride to one of several waterfalls to enjoy a picnic lunch and swimming or you can explore various caves, one which will allow you to canoe deep inside an underground cave system. A pre-ride orientation will give the rider important information concerning our particular trails and Western style of horseback riding. We take care to match the rider with the most suitable horse and tack by considering the height, weight and riding ability of each person. Rain gear, water bottles, camera bags, and gourmet picnic lunches are provided. We select routes that pass through varied ecosystems while your guide describes traditional uses of plants. Included are visits to Maya ruins, which are abundant in this area, and the exhilarating experience of riding through a pristine Rain Forrest. It is important that riders wear riding boots, hiking boots, or tennis shoes (with socks), and long (preferably single-seamed) trousers or jodhpurs. All half day and full day rides include breaks for swimming, caving, and picnic lunches. Be sure to bring your bathing suites and cameras to enjoy the day to its fullest.

This was the most fun horse trek we've ever been on! My partner has been riding horses since she was 5 and is very advanced, but I've only done 6 or 7 treks before, so I'm still beginner/intermediate level, but we both had a blast on this trip. Definitely suitable for all levels of riding ability - our guide made... More

We started our trip in Cayo, Belize because we wanted to get a taste of the jungle, waterfalls, caves and horseback riding. Jim (the owner) picked us up at the airport and we immediately felt like we were in the car with family. He told us all kinds of stories about growing up in Belize. We arrived at his beautiful...

Loved the tours and the people! Jim and Margarite are very warm and welcoming and the guide, Gio, is super knowledgeable and friendly. I would definitely recommend MET to anyone wanting to experience the jungle on horseback!

Lovely place ran by a US family. Cabanas are rustic and romantic with the petroleum lights. You can really get a kind of jungle feeling with the wildlife around you. Should you like wildlife or horse riding you will be at the right place. They have excellent guides for birdwatching and horseback riding as well. Food is really delicious and... More

We loved each day trip we took through MET. The day trip to Tikal in Guatemala was great. Our tour guide was informative and fun. Arran was really helpful in arranging everything and getting us across the boarder. We also went on a canoeing cave tour. Most of our party rode horses to the destination, but Arran ensured that even... More

I rode daily to see different parts of the jungle to see caves, waterfalls, wildlife and plants. The horse I rode was wonderful. The guide was very good. My travel companion does not ride horses, so she did the same trips via vehicle. We both had an amazing time. This is a great place. The family and staff are wonderful.... More

Thank you! Your review will be so helpful for those parties where some like to ride horses and others don't. Riding horseback is a great way to see the jungle but we can still make it happen if that's not your preference. More

Instantly felt like family. Rigo guided me on horseback and hikes to waterfalls that more than met my expectations and ability; I'm 67, training my young mare, worked on a cattle ranch. Blanca prepared feasts for the rides and back at home base that were yummy and more than met my dietary concerns. I could be as active as I... More
