I came with a group from Royal Caribbean. Pat and Julio were fantastic and the owner was very gracious. The ruins are beautiful and the ride is relaxing. You'll be paired with a mount to match your riding skill so beginners through experienced will enjoy the ride itself.

Our group had a great time. The staff was well organized, stayed with us at all times during tour and was informative. They had a great sense of humor too. Would recommend this to everyone to go on just once. you won't regret it.

Thank you Pato! I had never been on horseback before and Pato was super at making me feel comfortable. He and his team teamed me up with the perfect horse. It was an experience of a lifetime!

Went 9/30 or 10/1, 2015. Was my first time horseback riding and very well worth it. Guide was amazing, funny and made us feel very comfortable, safe and easy. I'm actually looking for the e-mail address or phone number of the tour guide Carlos. If anyone knows, please let me know! DM1645@nova.edu - Thank You!

I help with a riding business at home and everything he went through was everything we tell people riding with us. I was very impressed with the horse he paired me with, And the one thing I loved about the whole experience,... More

This excursion was a great way to finish off a cruise. Pato our tour guide was very personable. He suggested getting bug spray prior to us leaving the port to make sure we would be comfortable on the tour. A tour bus takes us along the coastline to the ranch and then we saddle up on the horses for a... More
