Established in 1989, Mountain Equestrian Trails (MET Belize) is a family-owned and operated ecotourism jungle lodge located in the foothills of the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve on the road to Caracol.  Accommodations are comfortable but not luxurious.  Kerosene lamps and candlelight provide lighting in the rooms. Electricity for charging electronics is available in the Cantina.  The focus at MET is on adventure.  Our “niche” is horseback riding with horses well suited to the terrain and matched to meet each rider’s size and experience.  In addition, we offer off-road vehicle tours to exciting destinations, such as Mayan ruins, waterfalls and caves in the rainforest, or the complete package with a trip to Tikal, Guatemala.

When you stay at MET you get more than just a place to sleep at night.  Your entire stay will be an adventure in this hideaway deep in the rainforest.  Birds abound on the grounds with ample opportunities for photographers.  It is not uncommon to hear Howler Monkeys, see Kinkajous, and other wildlife.


When you stay at MET you are literally guests in our home.  Three generations of Bevises live on the ranch and are at your service, down to six-year-old Sierra who offer’s “Rantula Tours,” right after dinner, before she falls asleep.  Meals are served family style and evenings are spent in the Cantina with members of the family and other guests.  Menus are developed taking into account every dietary restriction.  Every evening is different, you never know who you will meet.

MET was developed for the adventurous at heart, for those who enjoy a hot shower and comfortable bed, good conversation, and tales of adventures in the jungle.  We are flexible and can adapt packages to meet your individual needs. Let us know, we will do our best.
