Other activities:

Horseride :
Horseback riding is a high risk sport which we try to minimize professionally at El Galope.

For this reason, horseback riding can be suspended due to bad weather, it is guided by an instructor to take care of your physical integrity and the use of helmet - that we provide - is mandatory.

It is a physically demanding activity so it is necessary to be in good physical condition. It is not necessary to have experience or coordinate the rides in advance. Please bring insect repellent, sun-screen and long pants.

Horseback rides take place on the fields of the farm and include a brief horse - riding course, horse preparation, brushing, saddling and unsaddling. (USD 40) Guests with experience (greater than 45 formal horse riding lessons) can take a second longer ride outside the farm ONLY IF the guide observes during the ride in the farm fields that you can fully control the horse. (USD 80 )

Sauna - USD 8 per person

    El Galope was exactly what I was looking for. It was peaceful, with choruses of wild things...and there were other guests from a range of countries to meet and speak with. The food was excellent and healthy and there were multiple options for spending time including good horses, (with spirits intact) a sauna and canoeing. Monica and Miguel were available and very helpful as well as interested in their visitors.
