This tour was designed for people who want to experience the tropical island vibe of Vieques. The private tour ensures that you and your group can relax and enjoy the undisturbed beaches with only the company of your guide and your horses. Your views from the saddle include a famous 400 year old ceiba tree, tropical fruit trees, a mile long pier, and shallow coastline with clear lulling waves. Instagram worthy photos included.
This is a private tour that will de adapted to your group to make sure you have the best experience possible. Are you more interested in local flora and fauna or do you want to learn about the paso fino horse's gait? Jurutungo guides like to get to know you and answer all of your questions about everything from your horse to island living. We ride along quiet dirt roads and beaches that are not reachable by vehicles. Your comfort is our priority so we suggest comfortable clothing like long pants or leggings so that the saddle and stirrups do not rub your skin. Closed toed shoes are advised. We offer a quiet relaxing morning tour and a sunset tour. Both offer dramatic views of marine life, native flowers and fruits, and neighboring islands.
Previous horseback riding experience is not necessary, but your experience level will set the speed of the tour. A lesson is included for those who need it at the start of the trip. Our horses are trained to remain at a walk until stimulated to pick up speed. If you have previous experience or are feeling comfortable during your tour, we would love to show you the unique gaits of Puerto Rican Criollo horses.
Is it safe?
We want you to have a safe and relaxing time riding with us. Helmets are mandatory. The horses are selected and trained especially for giving tours to riders of all experience levels. The best way that you can ensure your safety is to follow the guides instructions. Anyone who fails to do so will be removed from the tour for the safety of the group.
Can I rent a horse?
We think of our horses as an extension of our family, and therefore we do not rent them out. Luckily, our private tours are customized for your group's best possible experience.
What is the route of the tour?
Tours are led along the northern coast of Vieques, a small island of Puerto Rico. You meet your guide and your horse at a famous 400 year old Ceiba tree and then visit the surrounding beaches. The remote beaches make a stunning backdrop for photos.
