About Mountain Equestrian Trails
Mountain Equestrian Trails (MET) is a family-owned and operated jungle lodge in business since 1986. Located in the Cayo district in Belize, Central America, MET's offers adventure tours doing things you wouldn't ordinarily get to do, like riding horses through the rainforest, rock climbing, caving, and swimming under gorgeous tropical waterfalls. Although riding horseback to destinations difficult to see from a vehicle is their specialty, MET also offers a wide variety of vacation packages catering to those who don't wish to ride. Guests can visit the Maya sites of Caracol, Xunantunich, and others traveling by 4x4 SUV's. Birders are often blown away by the amount of tropical birds seen in and around the grounds of MET. Caving enthusiasts can spend every day exploring different caves, many of which still contain relics of ancient Mayan underground ceremonies. Day trips to Tikal in Guatemala are also available. Packages can be customized to meet special needs and desires.

The Cabanas are thatched-roof cottages with comfortable beds, private baths, and hot and cold water. The cabanas do not have electricity and are lit at night by kerosene lamps and candlelight. Free wi-fi and electricity for charging electronics is available in the Cantina, which is the dining room/bar/lounge, the area where guests hang out and meet other guests from around the world.
