My husband & myself were incredibly impressed with our stay at Mountain Equestrian Trails- the palapa bungalows were comfortable & elegantly designed, the food was really, really good, the surrounding jungle was lush, and the hospitality extended was beyond generous. Overall, this is one of the most amazing places we've stayed at! We plan on returning in the future &... More

We decided to go back to MET after an 11 year absence. MET was just as cute as it was back then. I must say it was just as fun if not better this time around. I thought the food, beds and company was outstanding! The Bevis Family is the nicest people you will meet in Belize. When I left... More

Wow! What a vacation! I went to Mountain Equestrian Trails with my 3 teenagers for spring break. We had wonderful experiences riding through the rain forest, past Mennonite farms and to Mayan ruins, swimming in waterfalls, and exploring caves. The horses were so well trained and very sure footed. There were plenty of opportunities for cantering and trotting (or just... More

My horse riding wife and (occassional rider me) stayed there arriving Christmas one year. It was fun, the food was good, it was relaxing and it was memorable. My dressage rider wife liked the riding and had no complaints about the horses, their condition, the tack, the rides, etc. (and she looks for those things.) The occassional rider me liked... More

We are already staring at the calendar to figure out when we can go back to MET. Jim, Marguerite and the entire Bevis family and staff were warm, generous, and gracious hosts, like seeing old friends who shared their wealth of knowledge of local flora, fauna, folk medicine, and culture. We being an older couple with more interest in birds... More

This trip was an incredible trip the minute we stepped off the plane. Not a moment wasted we immediately started our activities but in no way did we feel rushed at any time. A true feel of Belize and its splendor. The rooms were clean and well thought out for a peaceful and enjoyable experience in the rain forest. This... More

Staying at MET is like going to visit favorite relatives you haven't seen for a while. Relatives that just happens to live in one of the most spectacular locations in the world. The horses are calm and sure footed, which is a good thing, because they go up and down trails I never would've attempted on my own. They take... More

What an amazing experience! Beautiful, remote location. Very rustic but with all the amenities you want (hot water, internet). Truly wonderful tour guide (Giovanni), and one-of-a-kind experiences such as horseback riding to a cave through which you canoe! The food was also authentic and superb. Very comfortable folks run the lodge, and we felt like we were welcome houseguests (very... More

Our group of 3 families, with 7 teenage children, stayed at MET for 4 nights in late December. I have travelled widely, including in Latin America, and this was one of the most memorable places I've ever visited. Secluded, unspoiled, beautiful, rustic. We felt as if we were the personal guests of the wonderful Beavis family, with whom we gathered... More

We stayed at MET for a few nights at the end of 2013. The lodge has a beautiful jungle setting with the plus of grazing horses to look at! The iffy wifi, no electricity in the rooms and no cell reception was a wonderful thing when you have teenagers that are hooked. Great experience for them and it was their... More
