Jimmy was our guide to Xunatunich. He was very informative and handled the horses beautifully. The stable was clean and the horses well cared for. The ride to Xunatunich was so pretty and it was a unique experience crossing the river on the ferry. Hanna's is a must in San Ignacio!

We had such a great trip with Jimmy! A lot of resorts use Hanna Stables, but I definitely encourage everyone to book straight with them! They are very accommodating and make sure you have the best experience possible! They picked us up at our resort and let us customize our experience much more than the resort who attempted to set...

My husband and I just finished a 1.5 hour ride with Manuel and had the best time! He was a terrific guide, taking time to point out unique sites and share fun facts along the trail. We so enjoyed taking in the peaceful beauty of Belize as we rode. It was a great experience!

Our family of four, two adults and two 12-year-old boys, had a really nice ride to the Xunantunich ruins. The guides were great. The horses were very healthy and well trained. The guides made sure to point out wildlife and we saw a lot! A brightly-striped snake, which the guide smelled before he looked around and spotted it; spider and... More

We had a fantastic ride to Xunantenich with Tracey & Manuel. They were wonderful guides, pointing out things of interest as we went. The horses were well tended & well behaved. The scenery was beautiful. The ride across the river in the ferry provided another mode of transportation. Lunch at Benny's was a tastey meal! We had a spectacular day... More

We had a great time with Jimmy riding along the Mopan River to the Ruins and stopping at Benny's for lunch. Wonderful horses, route, stories and guide. Definitely a must if you are in the area. Even got a ride back to our lodge by Santiago - very entertaining!!

If Heaven was a place on Earth, it would be Hanna Stables. I set up a 3 day vacation package, that included a variety of activities and excursions. Santiago made sure that my girlfriend and I were taken care of from the moment we got off the express boat to the second we got to the ranch. There's so many... More

We had a wonderful ride to Xunantunich with William. He was very friendly and did a great job pointing out wildlife. The highlight of our ride was seeing and hearing howler monkeys along the river on the ride back. The horses were great even with the close proximity to large groups of people and tour buses on the ferry.

The staff at Hanna Stables made us feel at home, and we loved every minute of our stay. From the horse riding to the crystal clear river to the delicious food, Hanna Stables was our favorite part of Belize. We hope to be back very soon to see Mr Santiago and the rest of his helpful staff.
