Horseback Mexico, based at Rancho Pitaya in the Valle de Tlacolula, specializes in exploring that nature of Oaxaca on horseback. From Rancho Pitaya, guided nature walks, adventure hikes and bird watching excursions equally compliment the equestrian programs. See Safe Distance Activities.

The state of Oaxaca holds the greatest biodiversity in all of Mexico, and in these times of “new normal” getting exercise in nature in small groups or private experiences is more important than ever!

Whether a morning activity or an extended stay with lodging, surround yourself in this open-air lifestyle and nourish mind, body and spirit. Individuals, small groups and families are welcome!
