Great ride for just the two of us to Xunantunich with our guide Arnold, a cowboy straight out of central casting: squinty, big hat, boots with silver spurs, creased jeans, huge belt buckle. The price was also extremely reasonable: we paid for the ruins admission and lunch out-of-pocket, and so were charged only $30 pp for the horses and guide. The horses were friendly and easy to control, if you have a firm hand. The ride took us through farmland, with a view of the ruins in the distance, a little over an hour each way. Arnold waited for us while we took as much time as we wanted at the ruins. We had a nice lunch at a local restaurant after the ride, where we got to know Arnold a little better: he had great stories about growing up as a cowboy in Belize, and even about visiting California to see family. Fun way to visit this site (and feel superior to the tourists riding in on buses).

Branden, we love the title for your review! It's definitely a stylin' ride to go with Arnold. We are so happy you enjoyed your ride with us and totally agree: it's far superior to the tourists riding in on buses! Come back soon.
