    Muy linda experiencia, caballos muy mansos y el paseo es muy lindo. No dejan llevar nada con uno por lo que no se pueden sacar fotos, pero ellos hacen fotos mas profesionales que obviamente son optativas si quieres comprarlas (es un poco caro). Nosotros teniamos el servicio con tasting de vinos, y la verdad que me imagine que seria en la playa; pero es a la vuelta de la ronda, en la recepcion del lugar y te sirven una botella de vino con un plato de salami y queso, no es “propiamente” una degustacion de vinos pero los productos eran muy ricos y de igual forma lo disfrutamos .
