What better way to get around than astride one of our trusty steeds? Just kidding! They aren't really steeds, however our horses are sure-footed and anyone from beginners to experts will enjoy a leisurely ride. We recommend that you try to get in at least one good ride before leaving Belize, because there is really no better way to enjoy the Cayo country-side.
Botanic Garden Ride
Ride horseback around the Belize Botanic Garden, right next to the lodge. This is a great way to see the gardens and to test whether horseback riding is for you. Check out some of the beautiful plants and enjoy a leisurely horseback ride.
If you just want to do some casual sightseeing by horseback, book a leisurely ride along the mountain trails cut through the Belize Botanic Garden’s acres of nature reserve. There is a special highpoint lookout called Valley View which is an amazing site for proposals and special picnics or just a mediation in gratitude. These trails are also great for birding and hiking.
Ride to Xunantunich
Depart Sweet Songs Lodge by horseback onto the hilltops and valleys of the countryside to the Maya village of Succotz. Take your horse on a hand-cranked ferry across the Mopan River and up the hill to Xunantunich or Maiden of the Rock Maya Site. Wave your equestrian guide good-bye or choose to ride back to the lodge by horse. Envision yourself picnicking under shaded trees in a plaza as your guide shares stories of growing up in Belize.
