Cotton Tree Lodge has 4 (Four) horses, and up to four guests at a time, (15 years or older unless experienced), can ride with our guide. (Younger riders will be considered if they have had previous experience and can pass a 5- minute ‘test ride’ to the guide’s satisfaction). For our younger guests, or those who prefer a gentler option, we offer rides in our wooden Mennonite buggy for up to three adults.Please speak to the office to arrange horseback riding options. Most riding must be arranged a day in advance. Shorter rides through the jungle or nearby orange groves are complimentary to All Inclusive and $35/Person for Room Only/Full Board and Groupon guest, while rides that incorporate a regular tour will be charged.
Your guide will saddle and prepare one of our six horses for you and meet you at the parking lot for an hour twenty minute ride to the Dry Cave. More experienced riders can speed up to a run, while beginners might want to keep things slow and easy while taking in the sights of monkeys, birds, and other wildlife surrounding you. Along the way you may steer your horses into the bush and explore jungle trails- going places too difficult to access on foot. You can have a chance to spot a variety of birds, fauna, mammals, ancient Maya traces and reptiles.
