St Leonard's Tours offers great private and personalized tours: Horse Riding, Archeological sites, Cave exploration, Cave Tubing and more. We have an adventure for all. Start with our horse riding tours and let our beautiful Appaloosa Horses take you on a safe & enjoyable adventure to Xunantunich, riding the countryside or simply just relax and enjoy a riding class; then take off on a thrilling adventure through jungle tours that will lead you to cave exploration or to enjoy a relaxing cool afternoon enjoying cave tubing...


Reuben was an amazing guide. He was super nice and knowledgeable. He spent extra time showing us Jaguar’s Paw cave and telling us about Belize’s history, ecology, and general info. We were picked up in Belize City and Reuben basically drove us over the whole country. It was more expensive ($225 each) but definitely worth it. We want to come back to do a full day cave exploration with Reuben.

The horses were incredible and very healthy. The tours were great and our guide went well above and beyond for my group. I would recommend them to everyone!

We had planned this as a private your for my daughter's 6th birthday. It was very hot, so at their suggestion, we were able to change to a farm and jungle ride only followed by a separate ruins tour. This worked out much better given the heat, and allowed us to really enjoy the ruins without worrying about having to ride the horses back when we were done. I appreciated their flexibility and ability to make the tours interesting and accessible to our whole family and to keep my daughter engaged the whole time. We left with her still wanting more, which was great.

Thanks for a great trip. The ride was beautiful and the guides were excellent. One of our participants needed medical assistance and the guides responded promptly and professionally! Thanks for all your help. Loved the hand crank ferry and the horses did so well on it.

I LOVED this trip! I booked it fairly spur of the moment for my last day in San Ignacio and I’m so glad I did. The Xunan Ruins were amazing and our guide, Elio, did a great job of explaining what we were looking at and filling in gaps in my understanding of the Maya. The caves were out of this world, I had just done ATM caves the day before and was in utter awe at Jaguar Paw! I can’t speak highly enough of Elio. He took great care of us all day, sharing with us his knowledge and fantastic sense of humor. Lunch was also excellent. 11/10 recommend this tour.
