Horse Riding in Macanao
For anyone who enjoys horse riding, or feels confident enough to ride a horse, we recommend an excursion to Rancho Cabatucan on the Peninsula de Macanao.
The excursion can be booked at any travel agency, or directly at Rancho Cabatucan. The ride lasts 2 hours, and it can be taken in the morning or in the afternoon. The weather during the afternoon is fresher.
There is transport to the ranch from the hotel, but, if you wish to get there by your own means you need to drive or go by taxi. To find Rancho Cabatucan, take the road from Boca de Rio to Robledal on the Peninsula de Macanao. After a few kilometers you will see signs indicating the entrance to the ranch. You can find the exact address on Rancho Cabatucan's website.
The facilities at Rancho Cabatucan are very pleasent. The ride could be a little uncomfortable for people with little experience of horse riding. The first hour of the ride is at a slow pace around Macanao's mountains. The sand is red, and the cacti are reminiscent us of the Wild West. You will take a ride on the beach during the second hour of the excursion accompanied by a guide from the ranch.
