Virgin cruiser here. I'm just making my way to all the boards here & am full of questions today!
Has anyone been on a beach horseback riding excursion? As a little kid, that was just the height of adventure and romance to me, so I have to go do it.
Are any locations better for this type of thing than others? How do the prices range? Are you allowed a certain amount of freedom, or are you shepherded like a trail ride with no cantoring through the surf? Any first-hand information is greatly appreciated!
We did Ginger's Horses in Mazatlan and we did go through the surf. It was a great ride and the horses are well taken care of. It is outside of town and the surf is pounding - not a snorkel beach. We got a suburban tour guy right after we got off the ship adn he knew were they were - they all did - and we paid $17 a person for about an hour and 20 min. Guided tour.
We are looking at doing this in Belize on our next cruise in April. I read some great reviews about the tour. They take you into the rainforest and it is a 2 hour horseback ride. We'll see...
I had to do it too because of the Titanic movie! I couldn't do it in the regular caribbean ports because we won't give up scuba diving or snorkeling for it. Debbie
