A great adventure! An other way to visit archeological sites and the beautiful countryside of Chiclayo. Beautiful horses with a very comfortable gait! Nice people and lovely dogs. A place to stay as long as possible to visit places around Chiclayo and relax. Free use of kitchen and laundry. Nice bungalow! Alina

First time on a horse and so glad that it was with the lovely people of Rancho Santana! My girlfriend and I, rode for almost 4 hours and passed through an amazing dry tropical forest, saw an inguana, and several Pyramids! Manuel, our guide, is the sweetest person! Strongly recommended for all! Wish we could spend more days with them!

We turned up to Rancho Santana last minute as we had a spare day in our travels. It was the best choice we made! We felt so welcome and our own little mud brick room was so rustic it was excellent! Everything you really need with a hot shower, bed and hammocks out the front to chill out on! We... More

There is a hot shower, a huge room and a garden with hammocks to relax and watch the birds and other animals which are around.

A beautiful place in the countryside, where you can watch birds, relax and do horseriding on comfortable Peruvian Pasohorses visiting the piramds of Moche and Sican-Culture (Lambayeque-Culture) We stayed 3 nights at this friendly place in the nice rustic bungalow, made with adobe-bricks like the Moche Culture did construct their houses long time ago. There are hammocks to relax in... More

One of the highlights of our trip to northern Peru was at Rancho Santana, where you get to ride real Caballos de Paso. The owner, Andrea, couldn't have been nicer or more helpfull. For only 45 soles, we had a 4+ hour ride through virgin forests and climbed on several Moche pyramids in Batan Grande and actually got to see... More

Too many people who visit Peru pass over the pyramid ruins of Batan Grande that are part of the Sanctuario Historico Bosque de Pomac, near Chiclayo. We didn't really know what to expect when we went there on a recommendation of someone from Tripadvisor. And it was fantastic. The best way to visit it is to go horse riding for... More
