I had a glorious time with my two teenage girls horseback riding in the mountains near Puerta Vallarta. We 3 have experience riding horses. I loved the quality of the horses and the guide we had. The views were amazing! Another mother had brought her 2 younger children along. These children had never riden. I was amazed that the children... More

Beautiful trail ride. Our guide was wonderful. The stop overlooking the ocean and beautiful PV was a bonus.

We recently went to Puerto Vallarta for a 6 day vacation. We were looking for fun activities to do and came across Ranco El Charro. Being the careful person that I am, I read both the negative and the positive reviews before making my decision, and at first I was hesitant to book the trip because of the reviews that... More

Absolutely worth the money!! They took great care of us. We came in on a carnival cruise ship, we were picked up from the marina, right outside the ship. We were taken for a quick ride into a small village area called playa grande. Where the ranch was located. We were paired up with a small group, then paired with... More

Hello, If you like to gallop down an incline and have your horse try to buck you off or have a guide with a "loco" horse that charges your horse and scares it into a bucking motion....go for it. As for myself, I do not want to have to go through the trauma of a broken leg or cracked skull... More

We spent 3 great hours riding horses through the jungle and crossing the river. Beautiful scenery and a lazy pace. After a walk to the waterfall, we were guided to a lovely restaurant in the middle of our trip. Our lunch was wonderful as we listened to the river gurggling. A great time. The horses were docile and our guides... More

My wife and I are novice horseback riders, but felt very comfortable on the tour. Pam, the owner, an American expat, picked us up in town and drove us to the ranch (about 10 minutes away), and matched us with horses to suit our abilities. The horses were extremely well-behaved and responsive, and obviously well cared for. Although the two... More

My partner and I went on the three hour Jungle Ride. Our horses were great and well looked after, and Pamela was warm and professional. It was a small group, just the four of us and two Mexican guides that seemed to speak little English (probably the biggest drawback of the tour but we still had a great time). The... More

I have been riding a number of times in Puerto Vallarta and enjoyed them all but this was that little bit extra good. The horses were well cared for and had lots of pep and took direction really well - no slogging along one after another completely ignoring their rider's wishes. The area was great as we were able to... More

We had a splendid day today riding horses in the beautiful jungle of Puerto Vallarta. The horses are well cared for and the ride was beautiful. We went up a small mountain and looked over the whole city of Puerto Vallarta...it was just 4 of us and 2 guides...it was wonderful seeing little casas and parrots, butterflies and burros! We...
