This 2-hour horseback-riding tour begins with pickup by air-conditioned van from your Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo hotel or the cruise ship terminal. Travel for about 30 minutes to the stable located in the south part of the Zihuatanejo County. Make sure to wear pants and closed toed shoes, and don’t forget sunblock, mosquito repellent, and your camera.
Upon arrival, receive a safety briefing and instruction. Kind and gentle, the horses are suitable for riders of all levels. The horses are well-fed, but wouldn’t refuse an apple or carrot if you happen to have one with you.
The riding portion of the tour lasts about one hour and 15 minutes. On your trusty steed, follow after your guide at your own pace. Journey through a small community at Playa Larga beach, then on the shore where the waves wash over your horse’s feet.
Pass a lagoon populated with birds and mangrove trees, and continue into a coconut plantation.
Then, your guide starts the return journey to the stable. Say farewell to your horse and enjoy a cold beer or a bottle of water, before you’re transported back to your hotel.
