JAVIER IS A PROFESSIONAL, FRIENDLY GUIDE THAT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL AT EASE. HE ENCOURAGES CONTACT WITH LOCALS AND EDUCATES TRAVELERS TO THEIR CUSTOMS. HIS TRANSPORTATION IS VIA BOAT COLLECTIVES AND TAXI CABS BUT FEEL FREE TO BRING YOUR OWN VEHICLE FOR A MORE RELAXING EXPERIENCE. Enjoy a beautiful trip on horseback through the Oaxacan country side. Hike among some of the most scenic landscapes

We really enjoyed the hour-long horseback ride up to the hot springs. The horses were gentle, well trained and sure footed--even for a beginner. The trip was beautiful leading up to four different hot springs from a very hot spring descending on down to warm...More
