Belize City Horseback Riding Tour Excursion Reviews

Enjoy a tropical horseback ride through miles of jungle and riverside trails.

Loved our visit to the Eco Park, and the peaceful horseback ride. Not too many active animals, but we did see some napping howler monkeys. ;-) Lovely, huge and clean facility in which to have lunch and a (delicious) smoothie afterward. Nice bathrooms and MAHOGANY lockers for anyone wanting to use them. Lovely pools, though we didn't go in. Again, welcoming and helpful guides, one of whom (not even "our" guide) taught us about how they burn cohune palm tree branches and nuts to control mosquitos ---and he even opened a "roasted" nut for us to try!

This was a nice excursion. An easy ride for an hour. Your guide does not push you to go fast. He will take the few who want to push it for a few minutes ( usually the guys) while the second guide continues with the rest. Its an hour long ride, take a few pics on the horses, then break for lunch. Beautiful forest paths to walk and take pics, big beautiful pool. Its a dollar to get sprayed with a bug repellent if you didnt bring any. You have the option to just stay at the pool if your not comfortable on horses. Our ride was slow and easy. All in all, a really nice day. Recommended Read Less

Excellent trip.
Excellent trip. We had an hours horse riding with a group of about 12, then lunch was served and we had about 45 minutes around the pool. This is a lovely place and would recommend this tour.

The tour guide we had was excellent. His name was Denis from Way to go Belize tours. He was absolutely fantastic, knew the Country well and was eager to please. Unfortunately, the "Village by Horseback" was nothing like advertised. There were not enough horses for our family, the setting was not a village as described, but was a farm, the horses were not in great shape and the equipment was poor. The ride was also far shorter than advertised. I would definitely steer clear of the "Village by Horseback" excursion. I would definitely use Way to go Belize tours though and definitely ask for Dennis. He was absolutely fantastic and made a bad day really good. Read Less

The stable staff were patient and friendly. They took time to match everyone who was experienced and the inexperienced with their perfect mount. The jungle had been hit with a hurricane earlier in the year so there weren't as many birds or monkeys to see since many trees were gone. The guides would stop to talk about the medicinal vegetation and point out any animals they saw, an orange iguana for one. The ride lasted about an hour and I am happy to say I was not sore. They fed us a traditional meal of rice and beans including peas and carrots mixed in, along with creole chicken. Yum, yum. Overall it was a fun time. There was a pool at the park to swim in but I didn't go in, although it looked nice. Read Less

Way too many people in this group on such narrow paths.
Way too many people in this group on such narrow paths. Saw howler monkeys. But the crowdedness took away the fun. Took too long to get group together to get on bus to stables. Buffet was good. Not much time to swim.

Good food as part of the package. Drinks a little expensive. Horseback tour guides were great. Bus guide was very knowledgeable. Didn't bring swim wear or would have gone in the beautiful pool.

We booked this directly through Banana Bank. We wanted to see wild parrots (we are bird people). We enjoyed this immensely. We met the owners of the park, which are from Montana! We met the wife's personal parrots and got a wonderful tour of the grounds, including a boat ride, a group that included just the 3 of us who traveled together, personal tour guide, wonderful lunch and snacks! We had an amazing time on this excursion. Read Less

The horseback tour was well worth it. A great facility with a very nice pool area and trails for walking. It had rained so the trails were muddy, but we had dressed to get dirty so this was no problem. An excursion well worth it!!
