If you want endless beach then go to Playa Larga. The waves are very high. Should be a good swimmer to go in. There are some restaurants along the beach. Very nice to walk along the shoreline and enjoy the peace and quiet.

So many adjectives can be used to describe this Beauty....
Jan 2020
like vast, it stretches for miles and miles
and can you say uncrowded, oh my goodness, not a soul in sight
and even if there were, there's more than enough room for all
so picturesque, the sparkly ocean at its side, with mountains and hills its backdrop
remarkably unspoilt in its pristine coastal location
its golden fine sands make it perfect for walking and running
(just don't cross it in the afternoon!)
with great caution advised - the crashing waves at its shoreline demand respect
make it spectacular and magnificent all the same
the perfect place to lose yourself
and just breathe
grateful to experience such wondrous beauty!!

Playa Larga is, in fact, LARGE.
Feb 2020 • Couples
Nice beach, runs for miles (and mile and miles and miles...). Eventually it becomes Playa Blanca (around the airport) then heavenly Barra de Potosi at the far end. Lots of decent places for a meal and cold beer, one that has live music every Tuesday. Never crowded, well worth a day away from the madding crowds of central Zihua.

Horse riding on the beach at playa larga
Jan 2020 • Couples
We booked through Viatour as much cheaper than through hotel and 1 hour is enough. We did the 4.30 ride which was much cooler. Picked up from Zihua and took about 15mins to the ranch near the beach. On the end it was a personal ride with just my wife and I and Ramon our guide. He was fantastic and took us along the beach and then into the coconut plantation and forest. He was a good giude and very friendly. Horses were in good condition and responded to Ramon so easy for all levels of riders. We had ridden before so galloped along the beach which was 20 miles long and very pretty. Definitely worth it

We were a party of 9 2 adults and 7 children oldest was 13 to the youngest 6. Ramon was our tour guide he is fluent in English and very knowledgeable of the area. Ramon did an amazing job explaining all the beautiful things doing the tour which lasted about 80 minutes going with the horses on the beautiful beach. He’s # 1 goal was the safety of the kids and adults great job all around. Thank you Ramon we will definitely be back. Great family experience with professional safe experience.

Horseback Riding - El Rancho Riscal
Apr 2019 • Family
Loved our ride with our guide Ramon! As horse owners and avid riders, this was the first guided ride we’ve ever been on (and we have tried tons) that wasn’t a single file walk on lazy horses. The horses were happy and healthy, and much smaller than most in the US.

Ramon was an amazing guide! He was very attentive to all the people in the group, and taught us a lot about the local ecology and culture. He even got off his horse to pick a native fruit, that locals use to make candy, for everyone to try.

Once he had observed everyone ride, and they proved they could keep their balance at a walk and trot, he let us canter the entire way back down the beach.

The horses were very well trained, and I was very impressed at how well they obeyed Ramon, and at his ability to instruct seven other horses.

Overall, it was a great ride and we had the most fun we’ve ever had on a guided horseback ride.
