The trail through nature and on the beach was a great way to explore the natural landscape and take in some breathtaking views. Our guide Alex was great and got us to try out a couple of various riding paces such as canter and trot. The horses are soft natured and very easy to handle even for beginners. The instructions provided were great for beginners and the group was carefully monitored the entire ride to ensure everyone was safe and happy. Don't hesitate to book, this has been the highlight of the holiday so far!

The horses were really well trained and looked healthy. The course was not too much for beginners and also fun for someone who is not a beginner. I got the great "Mojito." They answered my questions quickly via email and were on time with transportation. It would be nice if there was a short part of the trail where someone confident in themselves and their horse could ride a little faster.

awesome! The guidance created a nice atmosphere and provided information at the various locations in a nice, informal way so that it was fun and interesting for everyone.

Highly recommended + very much appreciated Octopus being able to reschedule our original date due to my son’s illness! Thank you!

we all had an amazing time. Snorkeling was a highlight, as was the slide. Guides were happy and very kind.
