Travelers, mount up.

Horseback Riding

In fact, some of our most beautiful places can only be accessed on foot or hoof.

Horseback riding tours can be arranged through many resorts or tour operators. Popular tours travel through the jungles of the Cayo District, or you can see Maya sites like El Pilar, Xunantunich and Cahal Pech.

In northern Belize, you can find horseback riding at the Mennonite community of Blue Creek. Saddle up and explore unexcavated Maya mounds and the farmlands and planes, stretching across the region. It’s a ride you surely won’t forget.
