This was my first horseback Riding experience on the beach for an hour, at Playa Larga. A little bit nervy, but turned out well. Use insect repellent before going on the ride. I was bitten a lot, altho my friend was not!

I actually didn't ride in Ixtapa proper, but a bit south and a bit north. Terrific combo of jungles and beaches, great wildlife viewing, stops for beers, and cheap, with good guides (I speak Spanish, not sure if they spoke any English). You just arrange it right on the beaches and go. $15 per hour or so.

We booked a horseback and snorkeling trip through IxtapDayTrips.com, and it was 100% worth it. All week long I thought we were simply going to Ixtapa Island, directly in front of Club Med, but I was happily surprised. Our guide picked us up at Club Med in a modern SUV at 8:30AM and drove us 25 minutes south to the... More

Nice quiet beach. No people around. The bugs in the bush were bad. Stay out on the beach. First area in Mexico with no garbage on the beach at all.

Had a great time beachfront riding. Got dropped off on the beach for a nice Mexican meal. Eight of us in our group, with two guides who took our pictures. Good value.

Beautiful long almost private beach with huge waves. Horses gentle and you ride up the road a bit to the beach and long ride on the beach then into magnificent coconut palm groves, butterflies flit about. Back to the beach for the ride back to the stables. If you request more than a gentle ride you will get what you... More

I enjoyed the personalized tour, the lack of helmets for youngsters was a bit concerning but the guides are very safe and professional

It was a trip we booked through the resort, they supplied the ride there and back. Was a little place but me and my husband were the only 2 in the group. We had a nice ride on the beach adn through the palm trees. When we got back we were offered a beverage of our choice.

The hosts from Rancho Playa Larga were great. Valentino and his father took us on a great ride along the beach and into the coconut grove. It was truly a great time even for this inexperienced rider. The horses were brought to our accommodations at Treetops and there was no fuss about times, they were there to make our experience... More

The horses were worn out and tired. They would not gallop or even trot. Lots of bugs on and above the trail through the jungle.
