    (+) Banana lodge is a really isolated place. If you want to come to the Lodge from Belmopan, you better hire a taxi for 25-30 BZD. At the end you come to Belize river and you hit a metal disc with a stone. Then you...More

    Hi I want to bring my 45 yr old daughter for birthday trip of a lifetime. Her kids are grown, she needs me to get her out of Savannah, Georgia. We both grew up owning, LOVING horses. I plan to arrive Tues, Sept 5 and go straight from Airport to your place- don't have arrival time yet. Best way to get there? We'll go to Placencia after leaving BananaBank. We're not afraid of public transportation, would love your advice. Would love to ride 1/2 day, cave tubing (if time permits), stay 1 night at BananaBank...maybe 2..air condition. Was in Belize first on a cruise, then flew in 2016 - 3 days after hurricane- with friends (not horse folks), stayed on Ambergris Caye- fun! I researched horse riding from Costa Rica to Bahamas & Caribbean ...BananaBank is where I want to take Michelle! We love sun, water, horses & fun people!

    As a travel agent I booked our horseback riding as a shore excursion. I would call the property directly. I'm sure you can arrange for transportation.

    Hi, We would like to go horseback riding. Do we need to book this before we go? Also the ride down the river? What are the cost for these?
