Shabby-shiek might be a nice way of describing Banana Bank Ranch. The cabana rooms definitely give off that "jungle" ambiance, but no air conditioning or TVs. Showers get pretty hot, but don't expect much pressure. If you stay in the economy chalets, expect less. Always...More

I'm not a fan of horseback riding but in the jungle, I became a fan. When we were in Belize we used every form of transportation for pleasure and the horse completed that. It was a blast!

This is not your grandmother's pony ride! What fun! Solid well kept horses. Good guides. You see the jungle, gallop, ride in a creek, and take on some challenging trails.
