Great experience for the whole family riding horses with Santiago and his crew. The perfect way to get to the base of Xunantunich. We even walked the horses onto the hand cranked ferry that crosses the "river" to get to the ruins. Fun family activity!

We did a half day ride the Xanantunich. It's a beautiful way to interact with the history and nature, and our guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

Great place to photograph birds. Santiago is very helpful and kind along with the rest of the staff. My favorite place to photograph so far in Belize, and it's so easy to get too. Thank you Santiago for the great experience!
