Great place to photograph birds. Santiago is very helpful and kind along with the rest of the staff. My favorite place to photograph so far in Belize, and it's so easy to get too. Thank you Santiago for the great experience!

This is a great place for horseback riding. Santiago is very knowledgeable and passionate about horses. Our guide Devon was very helpful and attentive. Even if it is your first time on a horse, you are in safe hands. Highly recommended

We only did a horseback ride tour to the nearby ruins, but I would LOVE to go back and stay on the farm for a week. Food was excellent, the grounds are well kept, and everyone was so nice!
