What You Can Expect

Private Heritage Beach Ride

Ride through the waves on horseback!

Hope on your horse and learn about the culture of the Taino Indians, their beliefs, habits and existence, before Columbus landed and the island was colonized under the Spanish flag. Ride through a natural wetland, shaded by almond and coconut trees, and see the excavations carried out by archaeologists, keen to uncover the deep rooted history of this area.

On arrival at the beach, sample a taste of local produce in a jungle beach hut, before you strip down to your bathing suit for a dash through the waves on horseback. For your safety, the saddles are left on, so you don't have to worry about staying on! Your return ride takes you along the deserted beach, where herons and other waterbirds fish in the shallow waters. You'll travel through the mangroves, which hide the remains of an eighteenth century warehouse and by an ancient waterwheel which powered the old sugar mill on this former sugar plantation.

This private tour has been customized for the more experienced rider so that they can ride at a faster pace. All riders on these rides are required to wear a safety helmet. Their riding ability will be assessed by the head grooms and the ride will be conducted according to riders ability. No galloping allowed.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Pay extra for the private tour although it wasn't totally private. A group of 10 rode about 200 yards ahead of us and a group of 10 rode about 200 yards behind us but it was great because we could actually hear the guide and enjoy the scenery with just the two of us.

4 star rating: Recommended March 2015

Very good company, and an excellent ride

4 star rating: Recommended July 2010

The length of the ride was good, the guide was fair. The horses seemed in decent shape and well treated. I really enjoyed the ride in the ocean. It was only my husband and me, so very private. My only complaint is the lack of toilet facilities on the beach itself. However the operators did take our towels down to the beach in the truck, so we didn't have to worry about carrying it on the horse.
