Full day horse riding adventure and BBQ dinner tour

What could be better than an entire day dedicated to fun, relaxation, and of course, horseback riding? At Cabalgatas Canoa you can choose from a horse riding tour with either 5 hours or 8 hours in the saddle.

If you want to have a better chance of seeing monkeys and spend more time on the beach, with a fantastic picnic lunch at an artisan brewery amidst the tropical gardens, topped off with a delicious BBQ, then we recommend the longer ride. There are plenty of opportunities to dismount your horse and have a rest and refreshment if that seems like a lot of riding!

The day tour with 5 hours in the saddle is another incredible but abbreviated option, and you will see some of the highlights of the area.

Our full-day horse riding tours with either 5 or 8 hours of riding, plus relaxation time, will enable you to see the natural beauty of the area. Explore the beach, jungle, and rolling hills of Canoa. On these tours, you will appreciate the nature, scenery, and beaches of Canoa, Manabí.

One of the great things about these tours is that you can tailor them to suit you exactly. If you want to spend all your time in the jungle spotting wildlife, not a problem, if you prefer to spend your day exploring different stretches of beach, again, not a problem, let us tailor your day exactly as you would like it.

​At the end of a tiring, but rewarding day’s horse ride, relax around a campfire and enjoy a delicious BBQ with sausages, steak, and chicken plus a range of salads and jacket potatoes, or you can choose to create your own pizza and cook it in our traditional adobe, wood-fired oven. ​Bring out your inner cowboy!
