This was an amazing and fantastic experience. Riding beautiful, well trained horses in unforgettable locations. You can ride to Cabo polonio, to an Ombue forest, to lagoons and to spectacular viewpoints. If you love the outdoors and marvelous scenery you should not miss spending some time with Mauro and Laura. Perfect for experienced riders. If you are a beginner you will be well taken care of but I would choose a shorter ride of 1-2 hours.
Don’t miss this place!!

I stayed with Mauro and Laura for 5 days in one of the lovely cabanas on their property, completely built with sustainable and environmentallly friendly materials. Mauro is one of the friendliest, positive and encouraging personalities you will ever meet. Having always tacked up my horses with English tack, the Gaucho saddles were a riddle to me and every day Mauro was incredibly patient teaching me how to tack up my horse properly. The horses themselves are wonderful. and obviously cared for with a lot of love and attention. I have ridden them almost all on my 5 day stay and adored each one of them. Rides are excellent, Mauro and Laura are fantastic guides, learned so much about Uruguay and the local flora and fauna. It was an unforgettable stay and I will for sure be back.

Mauro was quite rude & not very approachable given our level of experience (or lack of). I would have expected a bit more empathy given the price of the experience. Wouldn’t recommend if you’re not ridden before.

You just need to read some of the other gests rewiews and you will notice this. Safety is always our priority, for riders and horses.

We did the "Cabalgata Buena Vista" with Laura. A great experience right from the beginning! Horses very well taken care of! Professional introduction to the horses and instructions how to deal with them. Ride on the beach, canter included! Horses are well trained, relaxed as well as forward thinking. As we have horses at our own at home and are used to ride, we know what we are talking about! Keep on going that way, dear Laura and Mauro! Thanks a lot for having us!

We booked a two-hour horseback ride on our honeymoon in Uruguay. We had no previous experience and have never ridden before. Our guide took his time and explained everything to us. The trail was beautiful with riding through the forest, dunes and right on the beach. The horses were super educated and made us feel very comfortable as beginners. An incredibly beautiful and unique experience!

My family had a great day riding with Laura! The horses were very nice, the scenery amazing, conversation pleasant and lunch in the village was tasty. I would highly recommend it. Our riding experience was very minimal but at no point did I feel in danger or anything like that.

Highly recommend doing the Cabo Polonio Panoramic all day horse riding tour!! The horses first have to swim across the river while we ride in a boat. Then you ride through the sand dunes in Cabo Polonio. After you ride along the beaches and hopefully you see whales like we did. Then you head into town to see the light house, sea lion colony and eat lunch. On the way home you ride through the forest. An amazing day!! Mauro and Laura are very knowledgeable guides!

Cabalgatas Valiceras is an unmissable experience in Uruguay! Mauro and Laura are the best teacher of horse riding ever! They are so kind, very helpful and love sharing their passion and knowledge about Uruguay. We made a horse ride in the Dunes of Buena Vista, a wonderful place, especially during the sunset. It was an amazing moment thanks to Mauro and Laura! I warmly recommend you to organize with them a wonderful “cabalgata” in Rocha area. Enjoy !

The owners are very nice and inspiring people and their horses are very calm and relaxed. You can certainly go with them as a total beginner which we were unsure before. I would wish I could go back to them from time to time.
However, people not used to it, be aware riding a whole day is serious exercising and might cause some sore muscles and skin ;)
