Great tour!! Beautiful views and super helpful and kind staff! They were very helpful with me as a beginner and we would definitely do it again. I felt safe the whole time even when the horse was running. They are very well trained horses and I could trust that the horse knew what he was doing and where he was going.
This morning ride was magnificent and the best 2 hours that I have spent on any vacation – EVER! My horse Chiquita was perfect for me as I am an advanced rider; a little feisty like I enjoy but fantastic! Even the beginners did great on their easy and sure-footed horses! There were 2 wonderful guides, Pedro and Daniel, one in the back and one leading!
For a joyful and comfortable ride, we strongly recommend you wear long pants or if not a beach towel for on the saddle. for shoes, we always recommend sneakers, boots, or closed-shoes, and a shirt that does not overly restrict movement. (Of course, bring Sunset and don’t forget your camera 🙂
The best horseback riding clothes are closed-toe shoes without a heel, sneakers is ideal.
