What You Can Expect

Horseback Riding Day Trip from Punta Cana

Horseback ride on the beach!

After pickup at your Punta Cana hotel, travel by open-top jeep about 45 minutes to Rancho Caribeño where you’ll meet the horses and your experienced guide, who will select the right horse for your skill level, whether this is your first time or you are an expert rider.

Once you are saddled up and ready to go, follow your guide along a local road to the beach. On the way, take in scenes of local Dominican life as you pass modest homes, sugar cane fields and rice plantations.

When you arrive at the beach, walk, trot or gallop on the sandy beach, which is bordered by swaying palm trees and the clear blue sea. You can even ride in the water – the horses love it!

If your tour is in the afternoon, you may catch the sunset while riding your horse on the beach – a romantic moment just like in the movies!

Have time for a swim and a complimentary beverage at the beach before you return to Rancho Caribeño. At the end of this amazing tour, your jeep returns you to your hotel in Punta Cana.

This excursion is great!! The tour guides are very helpful and extremely nice. Definitely worth the money. They have picture discs they sell at the end of the entire excursion, I was pleasantly surprised at amount of photos they took and the quality of the pics.

This tour was great! I loved it Daniel was great it was my first time on a horse and I was scared at first, he took his time and made it easy for me to warm-up! I will be coming back when I visit punta Cana again. I love the beach, I love the ride and scenery is very beautiful. Thank you.

It really was a great tour! The ride to the ranch took about an hour between picking up other guests and driving to the ranch. As others have stated it's in what I would call a safari vehicle but the weather was beautiful and we found it perfectly comfortable! The ranch was really cute, had puppies, iguanas, and other animals wandering around. Seemed clean and well-kept. They have a small souvenir shop you can browse before and after your ride. They provide helmets and basic instruction and then help get everyone saddled up and then off you go! We did the two hour tour and honestly that was probably more than enough for me. There was always a guide in front, to the side, and behind us. If you're not used to riding a horse or super comfortable with animals it can be a little scary! But we found it to be overall very pleasant. The beaches we rode on were GORGEOUS and undisturbed. There was opportunities to stop and take photos. We did quite a bit of galloping lol. My entire body was sore the next day so keep that in mind when booking. Overall I'm glad to say I have done it. The staff was really all around great, funny, and very informative about any questions we had. They do take pictures throughout and you'll have an opportunity to purchase them after. We got the bottle of rum with our picture on it. :-

Our guides were friendly and helpful. The ride route was beautiful. And as an experienced rider I was allowed to actually race along the beach with one of the guides and another rider who was more experienced. It was a wonderful experience and I would love to do it again my next visit.

Had a wonderful time loved riding on the beach. Tour guides were great fun.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2015

Great activity, very reasonably priced. Guides know what they are doing. Horses were in good condition (compared to our last trip). seems like all were happy - people who wanted to ride slower and the ones who wanted to go fast. Would def recommend.
P.S. on the Viator part - seems redundant to request a pickup 24hrs before, i specified the date of the activity and the resort i am staying at when I purchased this activity, why do i need to call you to request pickup??? (almost missed my trip because did not read the fine print about this redundancy) - 5 starst for the stables - 3 stars for Viator
