On this tour, you’ll get an incredible view of Lake Atitlán as you explore the surrounding terrain on horseback. This morning tour also comes with a homemade breakfast at a farm at lake Atitlan.

The tour begins with a pickup at Posada de Santiago. (It’s also possible to arrange a pickup from other nearby hotels or a dock.) Your group will continue to Finca Xetuc, which is located on the far side of Santiago Bay. There you’ll sip a cup of homegrown coffee and nosh on some sweet rolls.

Next, you’ll get acquainted with the horse that you’ll be riding, as well as your guides and the other members of your group. It’s important to let the guides know in advance each visitor’s level of experience. Guides can provide horses for experienced riders, and they offer walkalong guides for children or people who have never ridden before.

You’ll set out down a trail that will take you through fields of corn and coffee. Eventually, you’ll reach a mountain pass and ride all the way to a lookout point where you’ll have a sweeping vista that includes Lake Atitlán. On the clearest days, it’s also possible to see the Pacific Ocean in the distance. The ride takes a total of 2.5 to 3 hours and covers 10 miles (16 km).

Once you return to Finca Xetuc, you’ll have a complete gourmet breakfast and a tour of the gardens. Your guides freshly prepare the breakfast themselves. The grounds here are designed to showcase the natural beauty of the landscape, and it’s common to see exotic birds as well as deer among the vegetation.

Non-riders and infants can join the tour for an additional cost.
