Horseback Riding around the Pondoña Trai
What to Bring
Your own travel insurance.
Usually we have sunny days up to 27 C and cloudy afternoons that can get as cold as 8 C. You will need light clothes for the morning and a pullover or a jacket for the afternoon. Please bring warm clothes for overnight stay.
It is best to have as much of your body covered to protect you from insects, sun, brush and thorns, therefore bring long-sleeved shirts. A hat, sun screen, insect repellent, and sun glasses are also recommended.
Rain gear is a must, especially if you are coming during winter (November through June) or during the days of early moon phase.
Don’t forget your swimming suit so you can join us in the jacuzzi.
We will provide you with rubber boots for some short rides, but we recommend that you bring your own equipment (boots or chaps, gloves, helmet) for longer rides.
For multiple day rides bring warm clothes for bed time, a towel, bathing suit, a small flashlight, a thermos or a water bottle, and any special medication you might need.
