My boyfriend and I only stayed one night and did a one day ride at MET, but I wish it could've been much more! I could've stayed there forever! The Bevis family took great care of us, especially Arran and Alyson, both while we were staying and on our way back to Belize City! The rooms are wonderful! Very cool,... More

This is a blissful place: off the grid; in the jungle; built the way the Maya have been building for centuries ..... and the Maya knew what they were doing which means that you don't need air conditioning since the heavy thatch roofs keep the heat out of the rooms and air is continually moving through the windows .....

Hadn't been to MET for about 8 hours and our return was absolutely delightful. The extended Bevis family is genuine and relaxing to be around, the food delicious and the cottage clean, cool and relaxing! The potato pone dessert, and that breakfast beans cooked in coconut oil were wonderful! Great how they serve all local drinks including Arran's aged craboo... More

Loved every moment of my recent stay at MET except for the part where I had to leave and come back to reality! The food was plentiful & fabulous! The cabana was exactly what I expected. It is the jungle after all. It was cozy & decorated well with fresh flowers on the pillow, & mosquito nets which we did... More

Staying at MET is like staying with a family rather than staying at a resort. You will join the Bevis family for breakfast and dinner every day. The family included the grandparents who founded the lodge, the adult age children, and the 3 young grandchildren. Food was homestyle cooking - not gourmet, but I enjoyed the food - and the... More

I loved my time at MET. I was travelling alone and enjoyed the family meals, which were absolutely delicious. They kindly provided me with a room that was atmospheric and affordable. A really special place with a lot of personal attention. The rides were a great opportunity to feel the forest. Hopefully they will build a pool, and then I... More

Finally got around to writing a review! :-) We spent four nights at MET in July/August 2013 and, like everyone else here, have only good things to say. Gio picked us up in Belize City and looked after us for most of our stay. When we arrived to our cabana it was beautifully decorated with flowers from the garden. As... More

The folks at MET are fantastically friendly, helpful and just plain nice people. They took us on exploration trips to newly discovered waterfalls, to beautiful overlooks and on fantastic birding excursions. They were competing in a bird watch event and we identified to 55 species in an hour just strolling around their grounds. Aaron and Gio were fantastic birding guides,... More

Thank you! The Lovely Cotinga was a definite highlight for all of us! I'm so glad you were there during our bird count and that you were able to add so many species to your list. Birding is generally not what people think of when seeing the name Mountain Equestrian Trails, but in fact, the birding, as you said, is... More

I recently completed a 17 day visit to Belize, which included 5 days at Mountain Equestrian Trails. The staff, accommodations, food, and horseback tours into the jungle, exceeded any expectations I had prior to arrival. The tour guides are extremely knowledgeable in the flora, fauna, geology, and Mayan history of the Cayo region. Regardless of your interests, I would recommend... More
