El Galope is located in the beautiful countryside about 1 hour east of Colonia and near the main road (although far enough away that you don't hear it). If you want to find a place where quite relaxation is the draw, look no further. The farm is situated amid rolling green fields and pastures and Monica can give you a... More

We had the best time at El Galope - stunning setting, delicious food and beautiful animals. We really enjoyed the peaceful surroundings. Monica and Miguel were wonderful hosts and this place proved a real highlight on our 8 month trip!

Miguel and Monica (and Rocco, Kira, Tupac 🐶🐻🐶) were awesome hosts! We had an incredible stay at El Galope, and so much fun adventuring around the countryside. We are from NYC, but are living in Buenos Aires for 6 months and decided to take a last minute adventure to Uruguay for the long weekend. Taking the ferry was super easy,... More

I had a great time at El Galope. Miguel and Monica were extremely hospitable and friendly. It felt like I was staying at a family friends place (which happened to be an amazing farm in the beautiful country side). I don't think I've slept so well in weeks, including when I'm at home. I had 3 home cooked meals, sauna,... More

I was lucky to come across this place traveling through Uruguay on a whim. Miguel and Monica are excellent hosts who use their years of experience to ensure guests have everything they need and are super comfortable.

Indeed safety is on of our main concerns. Horseriding can be very risky and if it is not well handled it can become a bad experience. We care for our guests firstly, our horses and everything we do, we do it with great care and love. Thanks for your comment and rating. More

We loved it! Monica and Miguel were the best hosts. Food was delicious, wine was cheap, and the company was great! It's definitely worth it to take the horseback riding lessons. Miguel was a very professional and knowledgeable instructor and we learned how to really handle horses, not just sit on old horses following a pre-established track. Breakfast was perfect... More

I had a great stay here! Monica and Miguel make you feel right at home in their lovely ranch. It's great for relaxing and horse riding, which they do in a very pleasant and safe way. Its good for beginners and experienced riders. They explain you everything you need to know and it's clear how much they love their horses.... More
