San Miguel de Allende is a colorful, colonial-era town famous for its spectacular natural scenery, and voted one of the world’s greatest cities. While most travelers stick to the sights in town, this adventure-filled, horseback excursion will take you out of the cobblestoned streets and deep into the countryside, where you’ll have a chance to gallop along cliffs and canyons for a one-of-a-kind travel experience.

What to Expect

San Miguel de Allende is one of Mexico’s most popular towns, but most tourists stick to popular sights within the picturesque colonial-era historic center. During this one-of-kind horseback tour, you’ll escape the crowds and head to the scenic countryside for an adventure-filled excursion across stunning cliffs and grassy fields.

You’ll ride your horse to the edge of Coyote Canyon, where you’ll descend to the winding river of La Virgen. The tour includes riding instructions, so it’s well-suited to both novice and seasoned riders, as well as anyone looking to escape the tourist track. Gallop at your own pace, or hop off the saddle to search for geodes or dip your toes into the river. You can also upgrade to soak your muscles at a nearby hot spring.

From there, you’ll ride your trusty steeds up the canyon to a towering cliff, where you’ll be treated to a spectacular panorama of the surrounding countryside, with the option to rappel off the cliff face. Top off the day with an authentic, ranch-style meal, including home-made tortillas, organic cheese, and local cactus.

Great ride and repelling!

It was an adventure. Great scenery! For a novice rider and never having repelled, felt very safe. Impressed with the number of cowboys that were on the ride from the company. Thank you for a great adventure.

Wonderful day!

We had a great ride and fun at the hot springs. The horses are healthy and very domesticated. The lunch was outstanding at the private residence- all homemade and vegetarian. The purpose for not rating it higher is: We were not advised about the schedule...More
