We'll be in Cabo in less than 2 weeks and my wife wants to go horseback riding. A couple of years ago we got reservations with the operation that is next to the Bull Ring by the highway just as you get into town. It was OK as we rode under the highway down thru the arroyo, then down the beach in front of all of the resorts. I would prefer to find someplace where you ride thru the desert and see more of the native vegetation instead of the beached tourists. No offense to beached tourists as I'm often one of them. One good thing about riding on the beach is you'll have a softer landing if you fall off. I'm not thrilled about doing this but sometimes you just have to make sacrifices.

I checked a couple of on-line sites like all-about-cabo and found everything but horseback riding. If anyone has any information I would appreciate it.

Pacific Beach Horseback


Discover spectacular ocean side cliffs, lush desert ranges, private untouched beaches and canyon trails in a Pacific Beach Horseback ride.

Horseback riding is the perfect way to enjoy the tranquility of the desert while contemplating the magnificent scenery and landscape.
Your 40 minute drive from the hotel will take you to Rancho Carisuva along the mighty Pacific Ocean. At this ranch you will receive an orientation on the proper way to ride a horse and each participant will be assigned a horse adequate to their skill level. You will also have free time to explore a typical Baja Californian ranch with 43 horses, goats, chickens, a friendly donkey, a fresh water well and a traditionally built desert hut (Baja California Style).

Hop on and follow your guide for a glimpse into Baja's contrasting terrain where along your ride, you will see cactus over 20 ft high towering over the trail, wild animals, exotic desert flora and incredible views. Stops will be made along the way to teach you about the desert flora and fauna as well as a stop at a look out point over the Pacific Ocean. Don't forget your camera as the sights on this tour are one of a kind.

From January through March keep an eye out towards the ocean as the migrating whales come so close to shore that you can smell their sprays.

They take better care of their horses than the ones by the bullring or beach in Cabo. On a pvt trip to Todos Santos we asked our guide about riding and he recommended that ranch. On our way home he stop there so we could check it out. The ranch hand we met was friendly and let us look around. It cost more than the others, but I think it would be a better experiance. We ended up not doing it because of the taxi mafia causing transportation issues at the time.

Todos Caballos in Todos Santos is about an hour's drive north, a much more rural, beautiful area, well described on the website. Great eats in the town, an artist's colony more or less.

"Welcome to a visual tour through Todos Santos. With horses as the common bond amongst friends, students and visitors it is with this ambition that we share this beautiul place amongst the pages of this website. Located in one of the most special places on Earth...let's ride through a slice of equine paradise, known as Baja California Sur, Mexico."

We rode on the beach once, with whales blowing just the other side of the breakers, around the fences enclosing the areas where the children rebury the turtle eggs so the dogs can't dig them up. Unforgettable!
