This is a very well run horse stable, the horses are beautiful, and very well cared for. They have a large variety of horses. We had a fantastic guide - Adelpho. We took the 2 hour ride, one hour in the hills and one on the beach....the beach ride was particularly fantastic and I would highly recommend it. It is... More

This place is great for beginners or experienced riders. Absolutely NOT a hack stable. Horses are selected to your experience. I am an experienced rider, but my sister-in-laws are total novices. Our guide took good care of us and was fantastic. He offered numerous times to take our photos both in the canyon and on the beach. If you truly... More

We can't say enough how wonderful Cuadra San Francisco is. We had an amazing canyon trail ride on beautiful and well trained horses accompanied by very patient and professional guides. In addition our small children took lessons in the ring and can't wait to return and ride more. The staff and facilities are wonderful and top notch. Thank you so... More

We had a wonderful ride! My husband is a confident beginner, while I'm experienced. They paired us with two well trained, lovely horses and we had a fantastic time. Our guide didn't speak much English, but that was fine. There were lovely sites all through the canyon and great picture opportunities. We'd recommend this to anyone who wants a quality... More

This was our first visit to Cabo and horseback riding on the beach was the one activity I definitely wanted to do so I had found Cuadra San Francisco through a Google search.

We had a great ride. I'm an advanced rider so the standard trail ride tends to be a bit boring. The horses were spirited and we were able to gallop a bit down the trails which was great. The guide wasn't very chatty (we speak spanish and english so don't think it was a language barrier) but the views were... More

We opted for the two-hour trail ride through the canyon. HIGHLY recommend this route. We had the option to do a mixed ride - one hour through the canyon and one hour on the beach. I'm sure the beach would be great, but the canyon was spectacular - especially as you ventured further in. Incredibly peaceful and beautiful. We originally... More
