Belize Horseback Riding & Xunantunich Mayan Ruins Tour
Xunantunich Mayan Ruins on Horseback
Riding through the jungle on horseback is an exciting way to discover the ancient Mayan city of Xunantunich. The tour begins at a local stable where you will meet your Riding Guide, mount your horse and depart. The ride to Xunantunich 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 Xunantunich temples and plazas on foot. Afterward, we will ride to nearby Benny’s Kitchen for a delicious lunch of traditional Belizean dishes before returning to the stables. The horseback ride includes lots of nature viewing of local birds and plants.
