Spend the morning discovering Oaxaca's exotic nature on horseback. In the company of an experienced guide, while riding fit, trained horses, you'll explore the rare flora in the mountains, soak up the big vistas of the sierra, and get a close-up look at the traditional farming methods of the valley. Wild cane, gigantic cacti and majestic Cara-cara raptors are highlights of this day. And after approximately four hours of fresh air and riding, a delicious, home-cooked meal awaits you back at Rancho Pitaya. Snacks and beverages are provided on the ride, as are helmets.An optional visit to the 2,000 year old tree in El Tule tops off this great way to experience authentic rural Oaxaca.
