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.

Mr. Santiago and his staff are the best. I will stay there every time I will go to Benque Viejo. The horse back riding, the food, the river are just magical. I highly recommend this facility as a retreat.

My family - including 60-year-old mother, two kids, and my husband and I - thoroughly enjoyed this trip. When seeing this site from the distance we thought that it was going to be a really long ride and were a little scared. The ride ended up being perfect and only 45 minutes to the site from the stables. All of... More

Had a superb tour with Hanna Stables (we booked through Pacz Tours). The horseback riding trip to Xunantunich was beautiful, really a great way to see the countryside, riding by the river bank. Terry was a great guide, super friendly and really conscientious throughout ensuring everyone was enjoying themselves. Horses are beautiful and clearly very well looked after. Highly recommended!

We spent a half day with Hanna Stables, doing a horseback tour for 2 to Xunantunich. Our tour guide, William, was very knowledgeable and was a great person to have a conversation with while we were riding to Xunantunich. The horses provided were very predictable and comfortable with having a tourist on their back. This was the first time I've... More
