Experience the authentic essence of traditional Mexico in the state of Jalisco, specifically in the Lagos de Moreno region. This area is known for its rich cultural, historical and natural heritage, earning it the title of a magical town.

During this tour, you will have the opportunity to explore two haciendas and ride along sections of the old Camino Real de Tierra Adentro, also called the Silver Route. This ancient trade route, spanning over 2,500 kilometers, connected Mexico City with San Juan Pueblo, New Mexico, from the late 16th century to the late 19th century. As you traverse sandy trails, hills and mountains, you will witness breathtaking landscapes and encounter alfalfa and corn crops.

We will then embark on a short ride around the Hacienda to familiarize ourselves with the horses before continuing our journey to Rancho El Monte. 

Along the way, we will pass through the historic curtain of the Alfonso dam and traverse the picturesque pasture known as Savana Africana.

Tour provider's comments

This horseback riding experience is perfect for riders who are at an intermediate level or higher. However, beginners and those with less experience can also participate if they are given advance notice. We offer lessons in the riding arena, and our rides can be customized to accommodate novice riders by allowing them to ride on their own designated trails while being transported by vehicle to a hacienda or lunch spot.

Horses: Quarter horses, Aztec and Mexican Criollo.

Tack: mainly Mexican + 2 Western and 2 English saddles.

    Une expérience équestre incroyable dans le véritable Mexique, avec ses vastes étendues désertiques de cactus et ses plantations d'agaves, explorée à dos de magnifiques quartiers chevaux bien entraßnés et sûrs. Nous avons traversé ces paysages en visitant de charmantes haciendas, certaines trÚs anciennes. Nous avons bénéficié d'un accompagnement exceptionnel qui nous a donné un sentiment de sécurité tout au long du séjour et nous a permis de rencontrer les habitants locaux, dont l'accueil restera inoubliable! Je recommande vivement Juan Alfonso à tous ceux qui souhaitent vivre une expérience équestre authentique et dépaysante.
