A local is in charge of guiding one of the most interesting tours in the area. It includes a winding mountain trail that shows off wonderful natural sceneries.
A few minutes after setting out, we found ourselves in the middle of the forest, surrounded by huge hundred-year-old trees. The horseback ride lasts approximately two hours and there is no doubt that this is a different way to visit remote unexplored sites.
The circuit starts at the 15,500th-kilometer-marker on Ezequiel Bustillo Avenue. Once there, turn left and then walk three blocks up to Tom Wesley’s Resort.
Inexperienced riders have no reason to worry: the horses used for these tours are referred to as “pilcheros” -which means that they have been trained to carry luggage - and are very much used to going up and down narrow trails.
Level of Difficulty: Low.
Recommendations: Av. Ezequiel Bustillo until km. 15,500, turn to the left and drive three blocks to Tom Wesley´s complex .
