Horseback Riding on the Beach in Riviera Nayarit
The beach treks are the shortest and most popular (due to the romantic nature of the activity) of all the horseback hikes offered in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit. As they’re shorter and the terrain is smoother you’re in less danger of becoming saddle sore by the end of the trek, and they’re also easier to personalize. Cantering through the surf at sunset (or sunrise) is possibly the most iconic vacation activity for couples, and Riviera Nayarit’s scenery will really perfect it. A trot along these beaches will infuse the rest of your vacation with an idyllic, romantic atmosphere.
If you want to get out of the touristy areas then you could take one of the treks that takes you out to the smaller towns and ranches in Riviera Nayarit. Your guide may even be able to tell you a little about the history of these towns and ranches so be sure to ask them. Perhaps the ultimate trek for adventurers, however, are the jungle hikes! These treks are longer, so be ready for a little saddle ache, but take you through some of the most stunning and wonderful landscapes that Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Nayarit have to offer to you. The local flora and fauna are fascinating and will definitely help to make your vacation in Puerto Vallarta unforgettable.
So whether you decide to trot around the ranches of the Riviera Nayarit, gallop down the pristine beach of Nuevo Vallarta and Bucerias or weave through the lush jungles that lie just outside the city outskirts you can be sure your trip to Puerto Vallarta will be made unforgettable by a horseback tour.
