This horseback-riding tour begins with pickup by air-conditioned van from your Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo hotel or the cruise ship terminal. Travel for 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.  

 

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.

Riding on the beach.

This was a very nice experience. The horses were well trained as promised. The guide (Victor?) was very patient and experienced. Gave good commentary along the ride. We wore closed toed shoes, although based on what others were wearing, it was not an enforced requirement. Totally worth the money!!

WOW this beach is amazing. Great horseback riding tour. Our guide knew so much about the plant life and made sure to stop to have us try local wild fruits. Horses were well behaved. Just so you know this isn't just a slow walk on the beach, you will do a lot of galloping and trotting to make sure you have time to see it all. Would love to come back and stay on this beach, I believe it is dangerous to swim in but so so pretty.
