Riding in the Canyon + Rappelling
First of all, you will need an easy and complete lesson on how to ride a horse and do you know what the best part is? To go on this horseback riding tour in San Miguel de Allende you won't need any previous experience at all!
Our tour departs from a nice traditional ranch located 45 minutes from San Miguel de Allende, in an area in Guanajuato full of cliffs and beautiful landscapes, definitely an ideal location to have a great adventure. We will ride down the La Virgen Canyon making a few stops to catch our breath, to talk about life in the countryside and to take pictures, too.
When we finally get to the bottom of the canyon you will see a river we will cross at various points, so yeah, you're going to get a bit dirty and wet... just like a real cowboy! Then we will get off our horses for a little while to continue our adventure: We will take a walk along the riverbed to search for beautiful geodes and quartz crystals.
On our way back to the ranch we will stop at the edge of a 120 feet deep cliff so you can rappel it down. The view La Virgen Canyon offers is simply awe-inspiring and you'll be provided with all the security gear you might need (tested and approved by local authorities) but the courage to go on the most exciting part of the journey is all on you!
Once we get back at the
ranch you'll enjoy a tasty homemade lunch prepared with organic
produce grown at the ranch itself, how about that? Go on an adventure in San Miguel de Allende you will never forget: a complete horseback riding tour, an extreme rappelling experience and traditional Mexican cuisine, all in one day!
