This wonderful ride explores the beautiful countryside around Valle de Bravo, just 2-½ hours southwest of Mexico City. Valle de Bravo is a very old colonial town with the traditional narrow paved streets, houses with red tiled roofs and flower boxes on the balconies. The town is situated next to a beautiful lake of the same name and has a great handicraft market, making Valle de Bravo a popular weekend destination. The La Sierra Trails pass through picturesque mountainous terrain with incredible vistas of the valley and lake below, thick pine and fir forests, Mexican villages and open farmland with fields of crops and colorful flowers.
The horses are fit, well-trained, sure-footed and perfectly suited for the long up-hill climbs in the mountains, stream crossings and canters across wide meadows. The rides departing November through mid-March have the opportunity to visit a remote Monarch Butterfly sanctuary to observe the butterflies that have made their annual migration to winter in Mexico.
The itinerary has been adapted to allow time for non-riding activities such as walking around town, shopping at local markets, visiting the spa for a massage. Or try one of the many recreational opportunities: mountain biking, swimming, sailing, kayaking, golfing or hangliding. After an active day, retire to the outfitters’ gracious hacienda for the evening to relax and to enjoy the delicious Mexican cuisine.
