We booked a horse back riding trip from the stables to Xunanatunich through our resort Black Rock Lodge and the best way to describe it is...what a deal! $50 bucks and we horseback rode in total probably 6-7 miles? Through a village, through the forest, over a river, up a hill, it was awesome. I would've liked a little more... More

We stayed at Black Rock Lodge and were fortunate enough to take a ride with Santiago on horseback to the Xunantunich Ruins. Santiago is very kind and knowledgable. His horses are obviously very well cared for. The ride was pleasant and beautiful through the jungle, town, across a ferry operated by a man and a hand crank. Upon arriving at... More

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and we couldn't have picked a better spot. Everyone was kind and accommodating. The country is beautiful and there is a sense of pride- people take care of their land and culture. Hanna Stables has a rich history, lush landscapes, and a view that feels you are in a dream. They take... More

This is a year late, but I really enjoyed the Hanna Stables horseback ride to Xunantunich I did last September. For one, it was way cheaper booking directly with them than going through a hotel or other activity provider. Our guide (I think she was English, but I cannot remember her name) was really great. It was my boyfriend's first... More

If you want a little taste of everything, the Xunantunich horseback ride will exceed your expectations. The horses are loved and cared for and well trained. This was my boys' first trail ride and I felt they were very safe in our guide David's care. Owner Santiago picked us up at our hotel and after finding out my children were... More

My husband and I loved our day of horseback riding to the Xunantunich ruins. Santiago picked us up from our hotel in San Ignacio and took us to the stables. The location and property are amazing and quite breathtaking. The horseback riding was great (and I was a bit nervous -- so if I can do it -- anyone can!).... More

We arrived at Hanna Stables (10 of us, mind you...), Santiago and his horses were ready and waiting for us. A quick but well executed matching of horse to rider, we set off toward Xuantanich, via a lovely and scenic path, not to mention the hand cranked ferry ride across the river. What an experience for the kids!! After a... More

Our guide, Terry, was a delight. The ride to and from the ruin was diverse and beautiful, and the horses seemed healthy and happy. The ruin is definitely breathtaking!

We rode out to Xunantunich, stopped for lunch at a great restaurant hidden back in a field somewhere and had a wonderful day! We had a very nice time riding with Terry. She got us situated and led us through wonderful scenery to Xunantunich where she left us to our own devices while we wandered the ruins. After that we... More
