    Highlight of my trip to Mexico!
    Lydia_L, Dec 2022
    This was without a doubt one of the best things I’ve ever done with my life and was the highlight of my trip to Mexico, everything was meticulously planned and very easy to figure out. 10/10 recommend!

    I had an amazing experience! My best day while staying in Mazunte. The horses were so good, the sunset was spectacular and our guide was so so nice (and a great photographer too)! We galloped on the beach, swam and had a lovely time. I would 100% go again.
    10/10 horseback riding experience!

    What an incredible trip! We loved meet Nicholas and his family, who were so hospitable and generous. The horses were clearly very well taken care of, and Nicholas was an incredible rider/photographer who got some great shots and videos of us riding, even at full gallop! We loved learning about the history of Ventanilla and all the great work Nicholas is doing with the local community to promote further ecotourism to improve the local economy and conservation efforts. What a hidden gem. :)
    Highlight of Our Trip

    I can’t say enough great things about this experience! My husband and I have rode horses in many locations across the world - this by far was the best. The location, the horses and the guide were truly amazing! I’ve enjoyed riding horses, but have never been great at it. Nico, the guide, made me extremely comfortable and was able to coach me like I’ve never been coached before. Before I knew it I was galloping down the beach! This experience was the highlight of our trip. We made memories that will last a lifetime.
    Once of a lifetime experience!

    It was SUCH a lovely tour. I happened to be the only one so it was a one-on-one tour with myself and Silva, the owner of the horses, plus it's a remote and sacred beach so we were the only two on the beach for most of the tour- felt so exclusive and VIP. It was nice because I really got to bond with both horses on a special level and we got to watch the sunset while riding. I learned how to gallup and train the horses to listen to me. Silva took tons of photos and videos and ensured that I was very comfortable and happy with the tour. I would highly highly recommend the tour. It was a once in a lifetime experience, truly.
