Mayan Frontier by Horseback and Beach
The excitement of your interactive journey begins as you board an open-air bus for a picturesque ride out to Hacienda Santa Emilia, a private horseback riding ranch on the eastern side of Cozumel.
This small excursion is perfect for beginner and experienced riders alike as your guides will give you detailed riding instructions then expertly match you with a horse that meets your personal level of riding experience.
You and your guides will leave the ranch behind as you make your way through the scenic jungle trails filled with Mayan ruins and deep caverns.
Throughout the ride you will learn about the Mayan people and culture, the Gods they worshiped and their way of life. Hear fascinating stories and facts of the Mayans including how this strong community of great warriors invented the number zero and were accomplished astronomers.
Upon your return to the Hacienda you will say goodbye to your four-footed friend and make your way to Ecolounge Beach for a little beach time before returning to the port and your ship.
