Mexico is the land of Aztecs and Conquistadores with a rich cultural and historical heritage. It is easy to reach, has beautiful unspoiled countryside and the winter climate is delightful, making it a prime destination for a horseback riding vacation. Surprisingly we had a hard time and searched for years before finding a place which we felt met the standards Equitours clients have learned to expect. We are therefore especially pleased to have discovered the Sierra Cavalcade which can be favorably compared with European trips from the point of view of horses, tack, food and accommodations. The Quarter Horses, Warmbloods and crosses are excellent and nothing like the smaller horses one usually finds in Central America. These aspects make our trips ideal for horseback riding in Mexico.
The tour is well planned to circle the lake of Valle de Bravo gleaming like a jewel and to provide stunning views as one rides high in the mountains through magnificent forests and grassy clearings. During the season, the ride includes a visit to one of the remote hibernating grounds of the Monarch butterflies which winter here in incredible profusion. The horses can approach within a few hundred yards of the site which is otherwise very difficult to reach and has few visitors. The picturesque colonial town of Valle de Bravo with its many shops is also an attraction. Guests stay in the lovely home of your hosts, which is beautifully decorated and surrounded by attractive gardens. You are welcome to browse through the fascinating library of Lucia and Pepe and you will find them a mine of information about local history, flora and fauna. The margaritas served in the evening after a day in the saddle are truly delicious. The whole operation is run with European efficiency without losing the charming Mexican flavor.
