FULL DAY MOUNTAIN RIDE

Your adventure begins from the Horseback Panama Stables or otherwise stated. From there we set out into the backcountry, following the mountain range that forms the crest of the continental divide with the the Santa Maria river-valley below. Making our way towards the remote foothills of Cerro Tute and the ​open savannah grasslands we find rocky outcrops and rural homesteads scattered across this breathtaking landscape. 

We touch the Santa Fe National Park at the summitin-front of us an expanse of jungle kept lush and green from the rainfall carried by the winds from the Caribbean Sea. This geographical feature indicates the start of 72,636 hectares; home to an abundance of wildlife including the second largest big cat population in Panama. As the landscape increases in altitude you are rewarded with the most spectacular views of the central highlands of Panama.

We then begin our decent, with the view of our destination nestled in the valley below. We return mid-afternoon to the village of Santa Fe, where we hitch the horses before relaxing with a cool beverage while enjoying a spread of locally prepared dishes. 

A WORD ON WEATHER​

The weather on the day will affect our plans, so please understand that while we want to guarantee your day, riding in a tropical storm is no fun! 

WHAT TO BRING

 

We recommend that you pack a water bottle, swim suit, rain jacket, hat, sunblock, insect repellant, dry bag or ziplock for electronics.

We recommend you wear long pants such as jodhpurs/jeans, closed toe shoes. Helmets are available upon request. 

TRAVELLING SOLO - NO PROBLEM!

Calling all adventure travelers who are exploring alone and want to feel safe in the remote areas, especially our female equestrians. You will feel right at home with a new friend as Lizzie is a  bi-lingual, female horseback guide. If rider levels and travel dates align we can ask groups if they would like to join together.
