Full description
After heading to the meeting point, a guide will take you first to a ranch where you will visit the farm animals and search for eggs for breakfast. After having a traditional home-made breakfast prepared by local women, the guide will take you to Boca de la Cañada, where the horseback riding adventure will start. You will receive a brief introduction about how to ride the horse, before riding to the deepest part of the nearby Coyote Canyon, crossing the river and enjoying the flora and fauna of the area on the way. There will be different opportunities to gallop, rest and search for quartz in the river. You will reach the highest part of the canyon from where you will enjoy a spectacular view. The cowboys will set up the tents here, so you will be able to admire the stars at night. Comfortable tents, sleeping bags and camping chairs will be provided. In the afternoon, you will have the opportunity to rappel down the 150-foot cliffs of the canyon. This horseback trail riding excursion gives us enough time to take a midnight ride all the way to a neighboring village, where you can stock up on some essentials, or pick up a good tequila to help keep the stories flowing around the campfire. For the more extreme riders, this horseback riding excursion also includes a section where you can gallop or even race full speed at nighttime. The next day, after breakfast, you will continue discovering the great canyon and the natural landscapes before going back to San Miguel. If you are not ready to go back to reality, you can choose to add on a visit to a local hot springs.
