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 not need. I don't think I saw a single one during our stay. The open air windows, thatched roof, and an occasional visit by a praying mantis or gecko just added to the adventure. I hope they never get electricity because it is much more fun with the kerosene lamps. A true jungle experience!
Our group consisted of riders with horse experience ranging from expert to "dude" as we say in Texas. We all had an equal amount of fun & found the horses to be well mannered & sure footed. The guides were fabulous and the Bevis family welcoming. My only regret is that we didn't have more time to visit all of the ruins. We shall return!
