Ixtapa Shore Excursion: Horseback Riding on the Beach

Your Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo horseback-riding adventure starts as your guide picks you up from the cruise ship port and takes you to Rancho El Palmar, where you’ll be paired with a horse that suits your riding ability. Designed for both beginners and experienced riders, this Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo shore excursion will be an exciting and fun activity for all!

Your experienced guide will lead you on a two-hour ride through the tropical jungle. Wind through coconut groves and small huts tucked beneath the trees. See towering coconut palms with mango and banana trees growing under them.

Weave out of the forest and onto Playa Larga, which means “long beach.” Ride along the 9.5 miles (15km) of unspoiled beach lined with palm trees, and enjoy the picturesque view of Zihuatanejo Bay. Soak in the sunshine and feel the warm breeze as you canter on the soft white sand.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:

We will ensure your timely return to Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo Pier for this activity. If you are not returned to the ship on time to board, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

The language barrier between the guide and I made for a very quiet tour. However, it was still a beautiful, hour-long ride in an area that felt far, far away from downtown Ixtapa!
