Horseback riding is a popular sport, either on the beach or designated trails. El Palmar can set you up with great rides for beginners or experts, complete with a bilingual guide if you prefer. There are a variety of horseback tours of the Mexican countryside, mountains, ranch lands, and the beaches near Melaque and Barra de Navidad.
We suggest using Daniel Rodriguez here in Melaque (315 355 6316), or Jaime here in Villa Obregon. Be sure to head out in the early morning or early evening in order to avoid the midday heat.
