Be sure to visit this place if you ever visit Belize! The accomodation and food are as good as you can come by in place in the middle of the djungle. The standards are set high and at the same time you get the experience of beeing in the heart of Belize. Beds are outstanding. Your guides are the best... More

Our trip. It was so great to be back in Belize. George a Private Driver picked us up at the airport for our 1 1/2 -1 3/4 hr drive to MET. With one brief pit-stop to get us some Belikin Stouts. The road is all paved until you turn off at Georgeville. The all season road called both the Pine... More

If you want rustic and natural, this is the place. Run by the Bevis family, it is a jewel in the jungle. Individual cabins make it very comfortable, and communal dining makes it feel like you are at a friends cottage. You are deep in the hilly jungle, and the equestrian aspect makes it all accessible. Great caving, river swimming... More

There is no way the Bevis family could make Mountain Equestrian Trails any better than it already is. First, the horses, they are very will mannered and very responsive to commands. They are so sure-footed that one has to trust them on the steep trails going up or down mountains. The guides are wonderful at pointing out plants and telling... More

I stayed at MET for the first time after doing a lot of research on horseback riding adventures in the Belizean jungle and overall, I wasn't disppointed in the natural beauty of Belize nor was I disappointed in my primary riding guide, Rigo, but other frustrations abounded with the small, family run operation. First, immediately upon booking, I was overcharged... More

We are so thankful we chose to stay with the Bevis' over Christmas. Our seven-year daughter, Anam, misses Sierra, Alex, Poncho the horse and Ripley the dog, and mentions them all the time. I rediscovered my love of riding and Anam just blossomed on the horses - these are not plodding trail rides - we cantered, rode through challenging jungle... More

We recently visited the Cayo District and took a full day ride with our guide Rego to the Falls. This was a wonderful trip, Rego was a real pleasure to have with us and very knowledgeable about the plants and animals in the jungle. I will make sure that a similar trip is on our itinerary for our next visit... More

My first trip more than 100 miles from a U.S. border and I loved it. The owners of the MET have created a wonderful place to stay. The amenities just barely include electricity and internet, so if you simply must spend hours on your computer or phone each day, this is not the place for you. For the rest of... More

We did not stay here, but booked a 3 hour horseback riding excursion here for my three daughters and myself. The ride went through the jungle and they pointed out all the interesting plants and explained so much - it was beautiful and informative. We stopped at a stream and waterfall. I wish I could remember our guide's name, but... More

This is an amazing vacation, especially for the adventurous/unafraid. I cannot emphasize how much fun we had on our vacation, galloping full speed through the mountains and fields of belize, learning about the jungle around us, seeing some of the most exotic birds and butterflies in the world. The staff is so knowledgable and talented, with a special shout out... More
