Horseback riding and horse-drawn carriage rides
In the cayos of the Jardines del Rey archipelago you can live the dream of riding a horse (paseo a caballo) along a pristine Caribbean beach. Both novices and experiences riders can enjoy guided tours through nature trails and virgin beaches of Cayo Coco, and admire the nice fauna and flora. The tour is made at a walking/trotting pace and riding instructions are given before you saddle up and go. Their most popular excursion is the 2-hour Sunset Tour with dinner included, the meal in served in a ranchon (thatched roof restaurant) on the beach.
