Full description

After a pick-up from your hotel or port, board your vehicle for a 45 minute to one hour drive to your horseback riding adventure outside of Acapulco and a baby turtle release session. Once on board, visit the Vallarino Turtle Camp, where you'll learn all about their mission in the camp which strives for the conservation and well-being of the sea turtles. You will then help release turtles into the ocean and then continue the tour to an Afro-Mexican Village that we will use as a base of operations to in time when it suits you well go horseback riding along a paradise-like deserted beach. The ride will be suitable for every level and you will receive a safety briefing and basic instructions. Then, set out on the trail through the jungle surroundings, passing coconut palms and other native plant and animal life along your journey. Ride for about 1 hour along the beach before returning to the base. Finally, visit a crocodile farm to learn all there is to know about these prehistoric reptiles. During the tour you’ll have plenty of photo opportunities so keep your eyes peeled for the perfect shot of the Pacific Ocean. Your tour will end with a drop‐off at your hotel or cruise ship.

The horseback riding was great. The beach is not crowd at all but still provides fantastic view of Pacific Ocean. However the baby turtle release ceremony was a bit disappointed as the timing was bad. There were so many people on the beach at that time, and the whole ceremony was too rush and too short. Don't feel that one is worth the money we paid.
