“Best Thing you will do on your Vacation!!”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

My boyfriend and I travelled to Puerto Plata this November and prior to our trip we researched things to do in the area.

We came across Rancho Lorilar and it sounded great....so I sent an email to them.
I was extremely surprised to recevie a reply from Joyce (the Manager) almost instantly. She provided me with all the information that I needed to know and we booked a trip via email for when we would be there.

When it was the day of our excursion, Joyce called us at the hotel to ensure we were still wanting to go (as it was raining that day). We decided to go any way as it beat sitting in a hotel room for the day.

When we arrived at the Ranch, we were greeted with a warm hug from Joyce and several of the adopted dogs that live there.
*Be sure to bring with you bananas for the Horses and sausage for the Dogs when you arrive*
We met our guides, Angel and Pedro and got ready to saddle up :)

Angel and Pedro were the most amazing guides we have ever had on an excursion. They were extremely knowledgable and made you feel comfrotable and at ease. AS this was only my second time on a horse I was a bit nervous at first, however by the end I was galloping and wanting to keep riding.

This was an excursion that I will never forget and we will back to see Joyce and the guys again soon!! If you get a chance to go here, I highly recommend it!

The only thing that I will say is to be sure that you send Joyce an email and deal with her. Ask for Angel and/or Pedro as your Guides and you will have the best time as well. The scenery was to die for and we had a lunch at the top of the mountain which was absolutely delicious.

Thanks again guys.....this was the highlight of our trip!!

Angel took great care of my daughter!!! Janine was awesome as well! They were genuine and a ton of fun!!! I wouldnt have traded this tour for anything and I am truly grateful to them for helping to build life long memories for my daughter and I!!!!

“What an experience!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I was a first timer! Joyce was very friendly and had a great sense of humor and Alex was even crazier than his name... Before I go again, I think I have learned a lesson...not to sit and put all your weight on the horse, ouch... We saw such beautiful sights!!!!
