Horse Riding to Playa Blanca

We are really excited to finally be able to combine 2 of our most popular excursions – horse riding and a day trip to Playa Blanca! We start this amazing day from Puerto Lindo where we take the safari truck to the end of the road in Jose del Mar. From here we saddle up and the rest of the way is on horse back.

We take the road through the small fishing village of Jose del Mar up to the top of the local hill and check out the breath taking view of the bay below before heading to the valley floor and following the cattle trails and jungle paths to the beautiful Playa Blanca. Once you’re at the beach, you can leave the horses in the shade while you take a dip, snorkel, sunbathe and relax!

Once you’ve had enough of lounging around on the beach, we’ll saddle up and head home. We take a different path back and show you yet more stunning scenery as we climb up through the jungle, keeping a look out for sloths, monkeys, butterflies and other native flora and fauna. Your guide will be explaining the ecology and geology as we go and it’s a great opportunity to learn more about this unique and beautiful part of the world.

Our horses are safe and steady and beginners can come too, although it’s a long day in the saddle so remember to stretch when you get home!

Lunch, snacks, snorkel gear and all transport is included. $110 per person (group discounts available). Get in touch for more details or to make a reservation – portobelotours@gmail.com
