Edgar is the man! (Even in the rain)
Kenneth_G, Jan 2022
We did the horse back riding and xunantunich tour with Edgar. Edgar was so nice and informative, knew everything there was to know about the Belize rain forest and Mayan culture. We started off the day by horse back riding through trails in the jungle. We saw small Mayan ruins, both excavated and not. Edgar then took us to xunantunich which was great. Again he answered our million questions and we ended with lunch. Even in the rain, he went above and beyond to make sure we had a great day!
