Thank you Pato! I had never been on horseback before and Pato was super at making me feel comfortable. He and his team teamed me up with the perfect horse. It was an experience of a lifetime!

Went 9/30 or 10/1, 2015. Was my first time horseback riding and very well worth it. Guide was amazing, funny and made us feel very comfortable, safe and easy. I'm actually looking for the e-mail address or phone number of the tour guide Carlos. If anyone knows, please let me know! DM1645@nova.edu - Thank You!

Our guide Pato was the best I have ever had, he did well in explaining what to expect. I help with a riding business at home and everything he went through was everything we tell people riding with us. I was very impressed with the horse he paired me with, And the one thing I loved about the whole experience,... More

This excursion was a great way to finish off a cruise. Pato our tour guide was very personable. He suggested getting bug spray prior to us leaving the port to make sure we would be comfortable on the tour. A tour bus takes us along the coastline to the ranch and then we saddle up on the horses for a... More

Although, I was a little disappointed in the length of the ride (less than an hour), it was well worth it. The guide, Pato, was very hospitable, friendly and knows his stuff. It felt like you made an immediate friend. There were first timers, and he did a great job matching horses to riders. I had a more spirited horse... More

I had not been horseriding for years. Pato was thorough and fun during his teachings and reviews of horsemanship. He was a great guide and took care of all of us (even though we were at different levels). He was kind and funny and professional!

I agree with most of the other reviews, so I will summarize to save time. Tour guide - Julio was excellent. Ranch hands very helpful Trail Ride - Short, 45 minutes. Prepare to sweat if after March. Horses sweat a lot too, so be warned that your clothes will smell. Not a lot of ruins, mostly manufactured. Advanced riders will... More

Myself and my mum took part in this experience as part of our Royal Caribbean Cruise and we were not disappointed. All of the horses were well looked after and so well behaved. We were given some basic riding instructions beforehand and then paired with a horse based on our riding ability. Our tour guide Julio was fantastic, he was... More
