2 travellers
Set your vacation apart from the rest on this horseback tour of Puerto Vallarta. Your guide brings you off the beaten path to remote fishing villages, hidden waterfalls, and mountain trails difficult to find on your own. Sit down for a buffet lunch in Pizota village, and then enjoy free time to relax on a private beach.
  • Coastline horseback-riding tour: No previous experience needed
  • Go with a guide: Ride through remote locations difficult to navigate alone
  • Take breaks for a buffet lunch, waterfall visit, and secluded beach swim
  • Small-group tour ensures guide’s full attention and intimate experience
What to Expect
Meet your guide in the morning at a central location in Puerto Vallarta. After a safety tutorial, mount your horse and head south. On arrival to a small remote fishing village rarely seen by tourists, listen to your guide give historical and cultural background about the community. Continue on a ride through the Sierra Madre mountain range, stopping at a hidden waterfall impossible to find if exploring on your own. Follow your guide to the small village of Pizota to enjoy free time on a private beach far from the crowds of Puerto Vallarta. Relax on the sand, or take advantage of sea kayaks and beach hammocks. Cap the tour with a buffet lunch of traditional Mexican food, including grilled meat and vegetables, beans, quesadillas, salsas, and desserts. The tour ends back in Puerto Vallarta.
