This is a smoothly operating, very professional business with good horses and better trail guides. Despite being off the grid, its a comfortable and accommodating site with an excellent chef and an extensive wet bar. Day rides can include waterfalls and swimming, caves and Mayan ruins, or a dose of local culture. Rides are tailored to the guests' experience level... More

We went on a halfday horseback ride tour, and it wss a really good experience. Three out of us four had no or only little riding experience, but the horses were well-trained and Giovanni is the perfect tour guide, so everything went well. The place itself is a green heaven, and we would love to stay there for a couple... More

I stayed at MET for 3 nights while on a birding tour with a group of birders. Beautiful area. Lots of birds. My room was clean and comfortable, however there was no air conditioning, overhead fans or electricity in the rooms. The rooms were lit with kerosene lanterns. MET is at a higher altitude than other places we stayed, so... More

We stayed for two nights with a full day ride to Big Rock Falls. We arrived later than expected but Geo was there to greet us and show us our room. The room was beautifully decorated and spacious with no electricity, which added to the experience. The next morning we had our breakfast and were shown to our horses -... More

It is pretty much impossible to find words to describe our experience at Mountain Equestrian Trails (MET) in Belize. I planned the trip especially for my little sister's High School graduation get-away. The idea was not just to spent amazing quality time together, but to also give my little sister a little taste of cultural diversity. However, what MET had... More

Jim, the owner, his son Arron and daughter in law, daughter Amy, are great people who make you part of their family as soon as you get to the Lodge. Geo, Rego and Rego Jr. are fantastic guides who make each ride a pleasure as well as an educational experience. The horses are great and actually look forward to getting... More

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
