We stopped in here on our way to the Mayan Ruins. Unfortunately, they were all booked up and had no space. We got to enjoy the surroundings and they are breathtaking.

I'm always a bit wary of horseback riding tours in Central America because a lot of the time the horses look overworked and underfed. Not the case here! The horses are very well taken care of and very well trained. Our guide was also awesome. He was a wealth of knowledge about Belize flora and fauna.

The staff are all excellent. I mean excellent. They go out of their way to make you feel at home. The rooms are sub par for sure. Rustic as can be and could use some updating, but this is a farm and its reflected in the price. But as for peacefulness? Great views? Awesome friendly staff, that can cook phenomenal... More

As somebody who both loves Belize and is passionate about horses, myself and my family are very lucky we have found this stables. We have been back repeatedly for Santiago (the horse whisperer) and his trusted steeds, all of whom are well kept and very much loved by the crew of Hanna's stables. The countryside in which they undertake their... More

We highly recommend this place. Santiago is a most gracious host. He was helpful in so many ways, including the organization of tours or where to explore. The food was excellent. The people were very friendly. We plan to go back next year.

We had a lovely ride on some charming horses through farmland and by the river to the ruins. Charming guide, lovely way to see the countryside. Despite the heat, we were cool under the trees by the river. We chose this over caving and weren't at all disappointed

I booked a horseback ride to Xunantunich for my Mom's birthday and it was by far our best experience on this vacation! The ride itself is phenomenal, our guide was knowledgeable and so kind. The horses are easy for first timers like my mom. But I had asked if there was any way we could set something up for my... More

First time horse riding for me and what a great adventure to head to the local Mayan ruins! Our guide, William, was excellent both for the 'pony' trek and explaining the very extensive ruins.

Sadly, the ferry to the ruin site was closed due to high waters. William did fill us in on the history and later, after our ride, we chose to visit a different site on our own. Instead, we enjoyed a pretty, morning ride.
