We stayed at the farm that Hanna Stables is located on. We highly recommend a stay there. But even if you don't stay there, the horseback riding was great. Santiago was so helpful and knowledgeable about so much. We truly enjoyed our time and conversations with him. We had our 4 and 7 year old with us. The 4 year... More

Did the San Lorenzo ride - more about the local area, countryside, etc. Our tour guide - Terri - was fantastic. She was knowledgeable of the area, was a great teacher and gave us a little bit of adventure paired with a relaxing ride. Highly recommend the San Lorenzo by Hanna Stables to those wanting to do something less "touristy"... More

I was a bit disappointed in my riding experience with Hanna Stables after reading (and hearing) lots of good things about them. I showed up at the time they told me to, however they weren't prepared for me (like the reviewer before me, I had been told Santiago would do the tour however it was someone else). While the scenery... More

Through emails we had planned a horseride to Xuanatunich. We had requested Santiago as our guide since he seemed to have had many positive reviews and we also requested a lunch stop at Benny's in town for lunch as well as a speedy return as we were to meet our ride to the Guatamala border shortly after the horseride. We... More

My husband, 2 sons (ages 10 and 11) and I stayed at Hanna Stables for 5 nights in February 2014. It was awesome! The best parts were the gorgeous setting, the plentiful and delicious homecooked dinners and breakfasts, and getting to know Santiago (who runs Hanna Stables). We also did a super-fun horse ride to the Mayan ruins. Highly recommended!

We just returned from our third visit with Santiago at Hanna's Stables. Remarkably, each trip has been better than the precious trip....which just doesn't seem possible. Santiago once again entertained us with his wit, charm and knowledge all the while providing for a very professionally run horseback ride through the most awesome scenery on earth! Santiago and his team were... More

Terry was our excellent guide. My daughter and I rode with Terry two days, on 2 hr trips through the beautiful and majestic hills around the farm. What a thrill to canter in such a beautiful place. It was heavenly. Terry was so cheerful and welcoming. Our horses, Domingo and Joanna, were so well trained. We hope to return for... More

Santiago was so great. We were late and lost, and he patiently guided us. We had a great afternoon with our guide up Xunantunich and lunch at Benny's after. I rode Domingo who was stubborn and made my trip amazing! What a character! Thank you again for a fantastic time!!

This was our first time to Belize and we were very happy with the hospitality and great ora that Santiago and his family has. We had our 4 year old with us and she was able to ride her own horse which she has been dying to do. So thanx for that!! There wasn't anything that we could complain about... More

My experience with Hannah Stables was a wonderful experience for me. Santiago gave fantastic customer service. The horses were well trained and very pleasant to deal with. We rode on Santiago's ranch and a couple local roads which were very beautiful. I would definitely recommend Hannah Stables to anyone of different experience levels !!
