“Two thumbs up !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2010

Larry and Anita are just a perfect american couple who love to share their passion : Horse riding.

I spent a week on Isla Margarita and enjoyed 4 whole days of horseback riding. I had a great time ! Price is correct and even less than if you book with another place advertised in the hotels. Plus, you get your ride just for yourself, accompagnied by Larry or Anita.

It was total liberty. Each day, I could decide where I wanted to go. And during the ride, we stopped when I wanted to... For pictures... To have a drink from a fresh coconut... To get a mango from a tree... It was such freedom I rarely knew ! Just me and my guide on horses.

At lunch time, we stopped to typical places to eat fresh fish. People we met were very nice and most of them said "hello" when we rode by. It's a great way to discover the island.

The horses were in a very good shape and well taken care of. They fit for beginners and also for experienced riders.

Try to book a ride (half a day, whole day or even more) before your arrival to Isla Margarita. They will pick you up at your hotel and drive you to their ranch where the horses are waiting for you.

Take some sunscreen, long pants, a hat and the camera of course !

“The Best Horseback Riding on Margarita Island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2010

What better way to see Margarita Island than on horseback with Cara Caribe. Hosts Larry and Anita Ford, along with their wonderful equine friends, made for a memorable experience that we will never forget. Our horses were carefully selected according to our riding abilities, as were the routes we took. Our first outing lasted two hours and took us up into the mountains. We had breathtaking views of the ocean, and trekked through a variety of terrain. Our surefooted mounts Chocolate and Tear Drop, took care of us all the way, while Larry and Anita pointed out fruiting cactus, hummingbirds galore, orchids growing in trees, and much, much more. We enjoyed our first ride so much that we went back for a second ride, this time opting to ride along the beaches and into the fishing villages. There is nothing more exciting than galloping along the beach. We got a kick out of stopping for a cervesa at a local bar, and tying up our horses outside like cowboys! It made for a wonderful morning and I didn’t want the ride to end.

We highly recommend Cara Caribe for riders of all ages and abilities, who want a quality experience with knowledgeable and enthusiastic hosts, on well cared for and competent horses. We can’t wait to go back next year!

“Great experience, highly recommended!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2009

CabaCaribe was a great experience and really added to our holiday on Margarita. The owners Larry and Anita are very welcoming, friendly and experienced horse owners. The ranch is well maintained and the horses are extremely well groomed and contented. This trip comes highly recommended, our experience of horse riding ranged from intermediate to absolute beginner - Larry and Anita ensured both of us got to enjoy the thrill of horse riding at our own pace.
Thanks for a great day, really enjoyed the experience.

“A relaxed view over the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2009

We were collected from the hotel - a little apprehensive as so often the horses are in bad condition in Central/south America, but we need not have feared - CabaCaribe had well fed, excellent conditioned and bomb proof horses (they were really well behaved even with the locals driving close and beeping horns!).
Scenery was great - rode into the hills and had a nice view of the town and beach. We were well looked after - and the ride was paced to suit us. What was really good was not being in a huge group so we could stop and take time to really enjoy the ride. CabaCaribe even took lots of photos and emailed back to us on our return.

Thanks guys for a great trip - we'd definately go again!
