- Many resorts and tour operators offer horseback riding tours through the jungles of the Cayo district. Several tours are also outfitted to explore the majestic Maya sites of El Pilar, Xunantunich and Cahal Pech
- In northern Belize, the Mennonite community of Blue Creek offers a unique horseback experience for visitors to the area. Participants can saddle-up and explore unexcavated Maya mounds and the expanse of farmlands and planes, stretching across the region. This is a great way to explore terrain that is otherwise a challenge to navigate.
