Amazing place in the Mayan Mountains. Family atmosphere, friendly and felt very safe. Do not expect to just take a quick jaunt into town for dinner, roads are very rough and slow. That said you really don't need to leave as their meals were fantastic and scenery wonderful. LOTS of birds to enjoy. They set up a tour to Tikal... More

Words can't describe how amazing my stay was. The family is so loving and fun to be with. The food is incredible. The guided tour through the jungle on horse back learning about the plant medicine was unlike anything I've done. It wasn't an easy ride!! Challenging and eye opening. Again the family is really something special. Big love to... More

Awesome mountain accommodations. The food was fabulous, the Belizian cuisine presented a touch of their culture. The guide was a walking encyclopedia...so knowledgeable of all the native plants for their usage. The horses were amazing. All levels of riders were able to participate. Over all a 5 star rating!!!

We traveled in a group of 12 family and friends aged 15-63, and MET gave us the perfect amount of alone and together time. We all got to do things we enjoyed. Personally I really enjoyed no cell phone, no computers, just relaxation and no worries, but internet access was available for flight confirmation and the likes. One member of... More

Belize is a beautiful and fascinating country. Most people spend their time on the coast (which is wonderful) but don't miss the opportunity to stay at MET and see the incredible diversity that Belize has to offer: jungles, wild life (awesome birds!!), rivers, caves, waterfalls, etc. All from horseback if you desire!! Wow, what a wonderful way to get a... More

My wife, daughter, elderly Mother-in-law, 8 year old grandson and myself spent the better part of two weeks at MET. This place is magical. The setting is stunning. The birdwatching is fantastic.

Perfectly perfect for us. Off the grid and definitely off the beaten path, comfortable lux-rustic living, hummingbirds and tropical birds abounding, the sounds of howlers each night, the friendliest people you can imagine, gorgeous horses and glorious trails and nature adventures, and every detail thought of!

We enjoyed the property, the hosts, but we really felt it was our guide, Giovanni, who made that part of the trip great.

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
