Full description
Make your way to the Hacienda Campo Rico, approximately 20 kilometers east of San Juan, and feel like you are in a completely different world the minute you pass through the entrance gates. Experience the home of different tropical plants and animals, some of which you may encounter on a 2-hour horse riding adventure. Upon arrival, meet the experienced guides and get some basic instructions and hear all the safety procedures before you set off on your horse. Get aquainted with your beautiful steed, and then follow the guides through 2,200 acres of private land. Soak up the Caribbean sun as you trot aboard the gentlest horses around! Marvel at magnificent views of the mountains and coastal plains, and come across lagoons and curious limestone rock formations. Keep a look out for the native wildlife roaming freely in their natural habitats, and learn the history of the Puerto Rico Paso Fino horses and why their health and up-keep is always a number one priority. Then, go to the hilltop Mojito Bar and cool down with some refreshing drinks of your choice. Purchase souvenirs at the on-site gift shop, where you can also rent GoPro cameras and other equipment to turn your horse ride adventure into an experience to remember.

THANKS TO CHRIS My husband and I had a AWESOME experience on our first horse back riding adventure.. Chris paired me with the BEAUTIFUL and EASY GOING PIXIE, I had a conversation & made a connection with PIXIE before our adventure! Chris (our instructor) hand picked six of us which was a great family group, he went over all instructions what to do & what not to do. As we started our adventure I was lttl nervous but within 15 mins in PIXIE but me at ease and I then relaxed and ENJOYED my ride. We went thru open fields, up and down trails, thru water & mud it was GREAT during all of this Chris always stayed observant to our needs. Chris had us stop near the beautiful house that I recognized from one of the Fast & Furious movies. Chris then took the time out to take our pics while my girl PIXIE had a snack. Let this be one of your excursions while is San Juan, We had a AWESOME ADVENTURE all the staff was great but CHRIS has such a GREAT PERSONALITY. THANKS CHRIS & MY GIRL PIXIE❣️

The activity went well. Wasn't hardly any bugs or mosquitoes like other comments had said. We didn't even use our bug spray or Sunscreen. We wore long sleeve thin shirts and tights with tennis shoes and was just fine.... not even a hat. I would have given a 5 star if it wasn't for my horse India. Idk if it was me or her but she was being very chill and lazy and would hardly trot and keep up with the others no matter how hard I kicked or slapped her with the reigns how I was taught. She would only do what she seen the other horses do WHEN SHE FELT LIKE IT. I was in the back the entire time and we had a small group of only 3 ppl. One of the guides confirmed she was slow horse at times. I would have given a 3 star bc of India but the overall experience was good.

Me and my wife had an amazing experience! At first she was a bit nervous but then she slowly got comfortable and the hang of it. Our tour guide Carla was amazing, she took great photos of us and made the experience overall worth it ! I recommend to anyone to give it a try.
