Horseback Riding on the Beach and Through a Coconut Plantation

    What to Expect
    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.

    I cannot recommend this enough! Ramon was such an incredible guide. He taught us so much about the plants and animals. He made sure we were safe and comfortable at all times and my friend and I had the best experience. The horses were very sweet and trained incredibly well.

    There were five of us in our group and each of said it was such an amazing experience! I’ve personally done a lot of horseback riding and this is by far the best experience I’ve had! A lot of horses are trail horses where they stay in a straight line and follow each other. These

    I took my son's on this excursion and they loved it. It was the first time they had ridden a horse. I recommend taking the time for this activity. The ride along the beach was my favorite part.
