One way to enjoy the local culture, learn about the history of the area, and enjoy the scenery is to take a relaxing guided horseback tour through a small local village. Along with seeing the colorful island homes, you will also hear stories about the traditions and culture of the islands. Your horseback trip will include traveling up thorough the dense dry rainforest to an overlook, where you can enjoy spectacular views of the windward side of the island and watch the waves crashing along the reef. On your return trip, you will ride through another village to Manzanillo Beach, where you can actually ride your island horse for a gallop through the waters of the sea. Have a drink or a bite to eat at Roland’s Place, a popular hangout on the beach for the locals, before heading back through yet another village and home.
