Your hosts, speaking fluent English, will explain all what you want to know about Mexico’s past and present the same as the “Mexican way of life”. The hosts proudly own the company and personally take care of all the daily details during this unforgettable one-week horseback riding vacation.
Enjoy winter as if it were summer. Discover a perfect mixture of Mediterranean weather with Alpine landscapes. Make your dream come true with a perfect riding holiday in the colonial town of Valle de Bravo, located by the side of a blue lake surrounded with evergreen forests and with the most exhilarating and colourful variety of flowers.
Discover an unknown face of Mexico and learn about old Mexican countryside traditions while riding incredibly fit and well trained horses using well-kept first-class tack. Let the grooms and wranglers clean and saddle the horses while you have a restoring “siesta” in one of the hammocks that hang from the columns under the shade of the verandas. If you prefer, have a good “Margarita” or strong “Tequila” enjoying a colorful sunset from the outdoors heated swimming pool with Jacuzzi of Finca Enyhe.
The ride is led every day by one of the host-owners who have an excellent knowledge of Mexican flora, fauna, history, culture, and traditions. Riding with a guide that is very well known in the area allows the riders to have an interactive experience with Mexican countryside people.
The route goes by ancient horse trails that run through woods, lakes, rivers, meadows, and villages offering breathtaking views. While passing through great variety of microclimates (from 5,500 Ft. up to 12,000 Ft. over sea level) riders get to see different plants, trees, animals, and birds endemic of Mexico’s Sierra Madre Occidental. The ride begins at Finca Enyhe and ends at the same place one week later. Each day after riding five or six hours, the horses overnight in a different stable-station while the riders come back by car to town. On one of the days riders return to town crossing the lake in a boat, a delightful and relaxing experience. The route also visits the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary so riders can enjoy this amazing natural phenomena mounted on their horses.
Accommodation is at Finca Enyhe, a five star magnificent hacienda with luxurious and spacious bedrooms beautifully furnished and decorated in Mexican style, each with its own private and complete bathroom. Finca Enyhe is located just five blocks away from the “plaza” so guests can easily walk and enjoy the typical town life whenever they want.
A great variety of flavours from the Mexican kitchen are offered to the guests with hygienic procedures. The delicious homemade Mexican food gives the guests the opportunity to taste different dishes every day. Lunch is a picnic on the trail served with typical Mexican “botanas”, “tortas”, and “tacos” that are warmed on a fire. Lunch is refreshed with cold beers, and sodas that are carried by “Don Sabino”, the charismatic pack mule that also brings whatever might be needed by the riders. Excellent red and white wines the same as beer is offered during dinner and three alcoholic beverages per day per rider are included in the rate.
A special program is offered for riders that would like to have less riding hours per day or have some riding lessons inside the arena. This way guests can have more spare time in order to visit the town or to relax and enjoy the facilities in Finca Enyhe.
