Belize Horseback Riding Tours

Horseback riding through the jungles of Belize allows you to discover and connect with the natural beauty of the area, in a relaxed and fun manner. As you ride down paths that Mayans once traveled, you’ll get a sense of what life might have been like during the empire’s reign. Our guided rides will take you to some of the best Mayan sites in the area, through tropical rainforests, and more.

We’ve partnered with a local stable a short distance from the lodge, for our Belize horseback riding tours. Their expert guides will match you with a horse that suits your personality, size, and ability. After you and your new-found friend have acclimated to one another, you can hit the road on one of the following tours:

Flour Camp Cave

Combine an exciting horseback ride with a trip to Flour Camp Cave. The excursion starts with a ride through the jungle, where you may hear howler monkeys, see exotic Belizean birds, and learn about the medicinal trees and plants. Once in the cave, you’ll have the chance to spend an hour or two touring the cave’s chambers, which contain some broken pottery shards left behind by the Ancient Maya. The cave has magnificent stalactites and stalagmites and your guide will provide stories about the rituals of Maya. You might even spot some of the cave’s residents -bats!- hanging from their homes, during your tour. The Flour Camp ride is fun for the whole family, but does requires some riding experience as it is a four-hour ride.

Experience: some riding experience recommended

Tour departs: morning or afternoon.  2-hour ride.

Age Limit: 8 years old and above.

What to wear/bring: Long trousers, t-shirt, hiking shoes or good sandals, camera, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, repellent.

For a more active adventure, look no further than our guided ride to Actun Kan. The unexcavated Mayan city provides plenty of thrills for explorers. The entire city is under grassland and wooded areas, showing how nature reclaims what is left behind. Signs of the once thriving city can still be seen and enjoyed. Climb to the top of the temple to enjoy views of Guatemala and the nearby Xunantunich ruins.
