Traveler Tips


  • "I wish I wore water shoes for the natural pool as the rocks were very slippery, so for anyone reading this-wear good quality water shoes!" See review
  • "They offer helmets at the beginning of the trip but we all had hats and stuff so we didn’t need." See review
  • "If you are an experienced rider, you may want to pay for the private/vip experience so you get a chance to canter on the white sand beach." See review

This trail ride was the best experience ever. I have been on dozens of trail rides, and this one was by far the best! The tour guides were so pleasant and very helpful when you needed something. I highly recommend this trail ride to all beginners or even experts!

The guides are excellent and took special time to make sure they paired the right horses with everyone. The trail has so many different views and topography. The length of time spent on the horse and the different speeds was perfect and everyone in our party thought it was a memorable experience.

This is by far one of the best things I have done in my life! I had never rode a horse before and the guides really helped me feel comfortable. Before I knew it, I was riding like a pro!

I would not recommend this place. My husband was hurt during the ride. He told our main tour guide how the horse kept trotting and hurting his private area. The main tour said “it’s your energy, not the horse” Main while, no one (the staff) wanted that horse when they had to switch with my husband. If he could adjust “his” energy, the tour would have been great.

Had a blast. My friend had never been on a horse and they made it so enjoyable she wants to do it again. The owner drove us back herself and was so sweet will definitely be back with the family next time.

My husband and I went here during our honeymoon and we had an incredible time! I've been riding my whole life, and we got to trot and canter, and still even the other people that were beginners clearly had a great time. Everyone was kept safe and happy, these Paso Finos are well trained and wonderful horses! The guides were kind, caring, and friendly. Breathtaking views of Arikok park along with a fun stop at the natural pool. I would go here again and again! Highly recommend to anyone!

The tour guide paired up horses with riders abilities. He kept a watchful eye and gave us information about the area. The driver that picked us up and dropped us off at the hotel was fantastic. Not only was he entertaining but at one point I felt really ill during our return to the hotel (apparently I caught a 24 hour bug) and he helped to make me feel comfortable. He was a very sweet and compassionate man. I would definitely recommend this trip.
