If you visit Mismaloya at the bus stop ask for Pefro Lopez. He operates Rancho Lopez a small boutique borseback riding experience into the mountainous jungle of Mismaloya. He has a very good grasp of English and is extremely accomodating. We have known Pedro for over twenty years and have always found him courteous, honest and kind. He loves his city of Mismaloya. And he will coordinate your experience to exactly what you want.

Mismaloya is located along the coastline of the Bay of Banderas
just south of Puerto Vallarta. It is most famous for the filming of ‘The Night Of the Iguana’ but however there are very little remains of the film set now. However well worth a trip is with Rancho lopez where you will be taken to the film set of ‘Predator’.

The beach at Playa Mismaloya is in a lovely cove, where you will get a fabulous view of Los Arcos sea rocks. This is a wonderful place to stay and a taxi ride will get you to the more crowded area of Puerto Vallarta downtown and the famous Malecon.

If you are a small group of 2 or 3 in the Mismaloya or PVR area, I highly recommend taking this 3 hour equestrian excursion. Pedro is a great guide and takes great pride in providing a quality experience. His horses and mules are smaller but very sturdy and comfortable for those that haven't ridden a lot. The trip is about one hour through the jungle and across some streams on the way up to the Predator film set. There he allows for up to an hour to swim in the pond with a rope swing, slide down a small waterfall, have a bite to eat and a drink. You also have time for a 45 minute ziplining adventure which we would have done had we known it was there. Then he takes you back down. The price was $30 US which was ridiculously low. Pedro will ride with your camera and take pictures of you along the way. He will let you cantor and gallop as you feel comfortable.
Next time we will bring a knapsack with a bathing suit and towel and book the ziplining as well. You can find Rancho Lopez on the right in Mismaloya just before the zoo. it would be a great daylong excursion to Mismaloya by public bus which would include the horse ride, the ziplining and the zoo. I suggest lunch or dinner at El Jacalita after.
