I absolutely fell in love with your place. I wanted to change my email address so I can receive the newsletter. My boyfriend and I are planning a trip to come stay with you in a few short months. I can't wait to visit again. Keep up the good work and say hello to Antonio for me!
Thank you! Terri Bereta
Your hospitality was the BEST part of our...experience and we are very grateful we had the opportunity to experience it. We would love for others to experience what we did. You guys are doing it right!

Day Trip - Experience the Belize jungle on horseback.
If you only have one day to discover Belize, this horseback riding adventure is the best opportunity to explore it all. From breathtaking riverside jungle scenery to beautiful exotic tropical birds, you'll experience a world unlike anywhere you've ever been before. Ride through old Mayan landscapes and be immersed in the sights and the sounds of the jungle on horseback.
Banana Bank Lodge is Belize's largest equestrian center, with 25 years of experience, 80 well-trained riding horses and highly professional wranglers, who will not only be able to assist you with your riding needs, but will also be able to tell you many of the interesting facts about the jungle and its inhabitants. Don't worry if it's your first time on a horse, all riding levels are catered for, from the novice to the well experienced.
Apart from the exciting jungle scenery, you will ride through Banana Bank's Teak Plantation, through the open fields (great for some cantering) and along the Belize River. If you're lucky you might see Howler Monkeys, Parrots, Toucans or other wildlife along the way. After the ride it's time to enjoy some of the best food Belize has to offer in a traditional thatched-roof restaurant, followed by "the yard tour" meeting Spider Monkeys and Exotic Birds (many of these animals were brought to the resort after they got injured and have become part of the Banana Bank family).
The end of the day will be spent meandering down the Belize River by boat where you'll be certain to see many Iguanas, untold amount of water birds and maybe even some Crocodiles or Turtles. Again, you'll be accompanied by a knowledgeable guide who will be able to help you spot the animals and tell you all about them.
It would be hard to get any closer to nature than this and still, Banana Bank is only a 50-minute drive from Belize City and only 2 miles from Belmopan (the smallest capital in the world). After taking this trip, you'll understand why Belize is called "Mother Nature's best kept secret".
