“Nice horse trek through rainforest and farm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

We went on a 1.5 hour trek at this ranch and it was great fun. We walked/trotted down a forest track before heading in to rainforest and through plantations and riding back to the ranch. My husband is a novice rider but he felt safe in the Western style saddle and we even went for a canter. Lots of lovely wildlife on the trek and the horses are well looked after. Guide was very friendly.

“Lovely location, birds, animals, and decent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

We saw beautiful birds in the premise: Toucans, Parrots, Macaws, and others who were rescued from the wild. There is a young jaguar resting in her own little space; she was rescued five years ago. The premise is full of tropic flowers. We had a good and long conversation with Caroline Carr the resident artist, and were greeted warmly by the owner during lunch. Lunch is simple but delicious; the service attentive and generous.

it is a little paradise in Belize.

Went to ride horses and found myself getting into all sorts of other fun. looked like a gorgeous place to stay. Loved the animals. Like a small zoo. The money was cute, it climbed up onto my head.

“What ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

This is not your grandmother's pony ride! What fun! Solid well kept horses. Good guides. You see the jungle, gallop, ride in a creek, and take on some challenging trails.

“Sleeping Giant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

The eco spot has great potential as the site itself is charming. The tour was just a boat ride, the boat was not clean, the tour guide was non-communicative and had nothing to offer about the scene. There was no safety gear provided even though it was requested. One additional concern is that there were absolutely no signs along the way to the spot and though interesting was a little nerve wracking for a group of ladies and children.

This has great potential and I look forward to the next step in their product development.
