Beautiful horseback riding
We had a great time horseback riding with a range of ages. Juan was funny and kind and the entire staff made sure safety was a priority while also letting us have some fun. Boys went on ATVs and had a good time as well. So much to offer there.

Awesome ride
My little cousin and I really enjoyed our horseback riding tour. Ricky was really sensitive of our needs and the horses were perfect for for our level of experience. The beach is a treasure to discover, as much as the guide and the ranch in its entirety.

Would definitely recommand it!!

Such A Fun Ranch and Amazing Crew
We own and ride horses and we were blown away by the experience at Chapparito. Carlos, the lead cowboy, is fantastic. He takes great care of his clients and the horses are so well loved and cared for. We had such a great trail and beach ride that we booked again and rode a second time. My husband joined us and rode the four wheelers and loved his guide Ricky. Every team member at the ranch was wonderful. We felt so welcomed and cared for. The tequila tasting was so fun and delicious, we swam in the pool and had drinks and lunch at the restaurant. We will go back again and again.

Super Fun and Great Staff
We had a great group adventurer horseback riding at the ranch. The beach the horses arrive at is beautiful and the staff is great about making you feel comfortable on the horse regardless of your experience level. Some of our party that were either to young or old to ride, stayed behind at the pool at the ranch and seemed to have just as much fun as we did. We finished off with a complimentary tequila tasting. Highly recommend this adventurer for your trip in Sayulita. We did the 4pm tour so it was a little cooler out.

I was hesitant to do the horseback riding because I have never ridden a horse and it didn't sound that special. I WAS SO WRONG! Carlos was our Caballero and he was super friendly and funny, AND informative (he taught us about a lot the nature along the ride). He took us through a little jungle on the way to a hidden beach to watch the sunset. This beach was one of the prettiest beaches I've ever set foot on, and there was no one else there! We had it all to ourselves which made it feel so special! Also, they had a gentlemen that followed us on the ride and took A TON of photos/videos that you can purchase at the end of the ride. And the quality of these photos is top notch! He knows what he is doing. DEFINITELY DO THIS!
**word to the wise - wear pants and shoes!

Fantastic Service... A must visit Sayulita!!
My sister and I had the best time ever visiting Sayulita! The service and experience was excellent! From the beginning, making the arrangements to the horseback ride and town tour , we were treated the best! Our horseback guide Marco Pollo was the best! We had so much fun riding through the jungle and on the beach. Our horses were perfect too! Our fun didn’t end there.... our tour guide Fernando took us for a fun ride through the jungle, town and to the beach in a quad! We got to enjoy shopping, drinks, great people and food! He was the best guide ever! Telling us all about the town and beautiful people there! They really cater to their tourists and appreciate us coming for a visit! If and when you are in Puerto Vallarta.... call these guys to set you up! You will have a beautiful, perfect day Guaranteed!!!

Most amazing ride - life long dream come true
I had the MOST amazing experience of my life with Mi Chaparrita - guided by the best vaquero I've ever come across - Carlos. The horses are healthy, strong, well cared for and beautiful. I did 2 rides while in Sayulita, one with my daughter which she loved, and then a private ride the next day, where Carlos and I did a more rigorous ride on the beach (allowed due to my experience). It was a dream come true galloping through the sand and surf on the most pristine beach with nothing but views and nature surrounding. I actually tear up thinking about how special this ride was, how challenging and peaceful and I felt completely secure and in good hands with Carlos, who is truly excellent and an expert vaquero.

We plan to come back next year!
