Michelle - We just got back from Cozumel. Some of my group wanted to horseback ride, others wanted other things - so we went to Mr Sanchos. It was awesome! We snorkeled and parasailed and jet ski'ed - got massages right there on the beach. We went there because they had horseback riding, but never got around to doing it! We did see the horses, though. When we went through customs, though, one of the questions was "Did you ride horses?" I don't know what would have happened if we had, but just thought I'd throw that in.... Maybe someone else knows if it makes a difference.

My guess would be the concern for the rare but highly contagious equine encephalitis virus that is caused by being bitten by an infected mosquito and can be spread from horses to humans.
Every year I would have to give our horses their "spring shots" and one of them would be for the protection against this sometimes fatal to humans, always fatal to horses, virus. Horse owners in the states are mostly responsible, but in some of these other countries where the mosquitoes thrive and are plentiful, are not as conscientious.

Of the 5 excursions my husband has done thus far, he says that horseback riding in Cozumel was his favorite. I can't give you details since I was not with him, (I did the sail, snorkel, and beach break with the other ladies from our group) but I thought I'd give you the thumbs up for this choice!
Life's a Beach ... enjoy it on a Cruise!
