Puerto Escondido: sunset horse ride

1. Puerto Escondido: sunset horse ride

At 2 pm, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Puerto Escondido and set off for the community of San José Manialtepec by van. The journey should only take 20 minutes. The saddled horses will be waiting for you when we arrive, after which you can start a fantastic adventure through some of the most extraordinary spots in San José Manialtepec. On the backs of your well trained horse, you'll head deep into the jungle and go through up to four different crossings along the Manialtepec River. This is the perfect way to explore its beautiful rural landscapes and discover unique trees such as the ceiba, which is considered to be a sacred tree by different pre-Hispanic cultures. After crossing the jungle, you'll arrive at one of the coastal Manialtepec lagoon's banks, where you get into canoes and paddle to the other side. Don't forget to look back! You won't want to miss the delightful sight of the horses swimming behind us crossing the lagoon as well. You'll arrive at the "Puerto Suelo" Beach where you?ll enjoy the sunset riding on the beach. The locals will be waiting for you, and will kindly offer the warmth of a bonfire with some delicious bonbones - the perfect way to get your strength back after our activities! We'll then get back on the horses and return to our route's starting point, from which we'll take you back to your hotel in Puerto Escondido. Our estimated arrival time is 9 pm.
