Equestrian Express Package Trail Blazer The All - Around Cowboy

These three exciting Belize horseback riding vacation inclusive package options were compiled with horse lovers in mind. Your jungle ride horseback adventure starts here! If lots and lots of riding is not your thing, we have more family inclusive vacations. Please check out these packages. Many budget options and various types of accommodations such as cabanas with thatch roofs, standard rooms, or luxury suites are available. All of our packages include your lodging, all meals and tours and are somewhat flexible. The only exceptions are alcoholic beverages and gratuities. Below is a review of a Trail Blazer ride participant. You can read more guest comments here.

Words can not begin to express what a wonderful time we had at Banana Bank Lodge. I can not believe this time last week I was in the jungle! It was really heaven for me to be around all the horses. We are already trying to figure out when we can come back. You and your staff could not have been lovelier. Leisa was so helpful in getting things organized for us. Marguerite was so pleasant every time we came for a delicious meal! And Alison, we can not sing his praises enough. My personal favorite picture is John's singing! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! You and Banana Bank made our Holiday and adventure to remember forever!

EQUESTRIAN EXPRESS PACKAGE - 4 days and 3 nights
Day 1:You'll be met at the Airport for your transfer to Banana Bank Jungle Lodge. If you arrive on an early flight you might want to visit the Belize Zoo or Old Belize.

Soon dinner will be served family style, providing perfect time and setting to meet your hosts and the other guests.
Day 2:After breakfast you select and get to know your new friend (your horse). We'll start our with some pointers in the round pen and arena and after lunch we'll take you to a challenging ride to Tiger Creek. Then we'll wind down at dusk with a relaxing stop at the Birding Tower by the lagoon. Take your binoculars to see some of the 210 species of birds identified.
Day 3:By now you've probably bonded with your horse and have honed your skills and horsemanship. Our wrangler will provide tips and pointers as you ride. Your afternoon trail experience will take you through more jungle along the river and through teak trees and fields of corn or beans. If you like we'll stop for a river swim before heading back for an evening of relaxation, chats about the day and another great meal.
Day 4:In case you didn't get enough riding in, you may choose to do a short aloha ride (we hate to say goodbye). If there's time you can stop for a tour on the way back to the airport or wherever you wish to go within our transfer range.
