Get off the beaten path and experience Vieques the way locals do; from the back of a smooth-gaited Paso horse! Everyone will tell you, there is no better way to explore the wilder side of our island. Our guided two-hour ride takes you through the hills, open meadows, woods, river bottoms and beaches of the Esperanza area. You'll even get to try out the paso (a smoother version of the trot)! We offer rides at 8:00 am and 4:00 pm; to avoid mid-day heat. The cost is $80 per person (group ride), cash only. Private tours and kid-friendly rides also available. Reservations are required and don't forget your camera!Please refer to our website for more information.

What an amazing way to see the island. If you had to do just one excursion, this would be the one to do. The views were amazing. My daughters of 10 and 13 were a little nervous at first but they quickly relaxed and bonded with their horses. It was a wonderful memorable experience for us all. And the photos... More

Such a fantastic way to spend the afternoon! I've ridden in the past, but it was my husband's first time and we both felt comfortable and had a wonderful time. A lovely way to see parts of the island we wouldn't normally have. The instruction and trail guides did a wonderful job guiding our mixed level group. Horses were well... More

We are beginners yet had a wonderful time riding with Elizabeth and the team at Esperanza. We had a lovely ride, including riding on beautiful beaches, on interesting trails, and through the town. We were given clear and excellent instruction, and made to feel safe and comfortable on horseback. The grounds are very attractive; the place looks well maintained and... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip. The ride and tour through the island was well thought out and informative. The horses were docile and easy to ride. We had our 12 & 9 YO kids with us who did amazing. Great activity!!

Leticia and Rob are very good trail guides. Leticia’s instructions before the ride were thorough and knowledgeable. The horses were all well behaved and responsive. The ride was exceptional. We rode through the village and into the hills where the views from the high ground were breathtaking. All through the ride Leticia pointed out views and plants of interest. When... More

We booked a private sunset tour. We went out with Valerie. She is a lovely person and we really enjoyed having her as our tour guide. We were able to see the Black sand beach and Coconut beach along with other beautiful views. We had only three days on the island and were able to see things on this tour... More

My friend and I booked the ride at 4pm so we got there at 3:15 as instructed to get familiar with basic riding commands. Latisha and Rob were our guides and they were amazing. I got assigned Whitey, a horse that was a little lazy. Latisha pulled me aside to teach me how to deal with Whitey and constantly checked... More

We are from Boston and there is a local show here that traveled down to Vieques and went here on a tour. After we had seen that episode, we decided we would do it while there. I am so happy we did. It was a really neat way to see Esperanza. We got to stroll down the streets, through the... More
