The horses were great, the ride was beautiful, and David was a great, knowledgable guide and very fun to be around. Once we arrived at... More

Let me just start off by saying how refreshing it is to meet someone who truly loves what he does! Santiago, the owner of Hanna Stables, is just this kind of guy. Genuine and funny with a slight bit of mischievous written across his face. He picked us up from our jungle house near San Ignacio and drove us to... More

We had William from Hanna Stables as our guide for our horseback ride to Xunantunich today, and we had a brilliant time. He is very knowledgeable and friendly, and showed us lots of cool animals we were lucky enough to see on our ride. My boyfriend is a complete beginner, only been on a horse once, and I am an...

We took the horseback to Xunantunich with William as our guide. The trip was awesome! The horses were gentle and well behaved. William was friendly and informative. We got to cross a hand-cranked bridge. On the way back we took a trail by the river and saw plenty of wildlife! This was a great trip for our family!

JP picked us up at Table Rock Jungle Lodge and drove us to Hanna Stables where our group was paired up with horses and we were off with our guides David and Manuel. We had a nice ride and then dismounted to cross the river by hand drawn ferry, then up the road to the Xunantunich Mayan Ruins. Our park... More

Santiago (one of the owners) picked us up at our hotel and drove us back, engaging us in lively banter before we arrived at Hanna's Stables. We actually decided to stay with them and do another ride after having such a wonderful time with Jimmy going to Xunantunich. It was just my 9 year old daughter and I, and so... More

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!
