Horseback Riding

Mount Up for a Magnificent Ride

Just down the road from the Orquidea is Rancho Chilamate, an authentic and spirited dude ranch that is home to more than 20 horses. This adventure is about more than just a ride. You’ll get dressed up like a real cowgirl or cowboy and have fun with a little photo session before heading to the stables. Afterwards, take a shot of Nicaraguaโ€™s national rum, Flor de Caรฑa, poured from an amusing glass skull decanter in the Ranchoโ€™s beautiful Spanish deco kitchen. You can even stay for a family-style dinner alongside all the ranch hands!

Check Rancho Chilamateโ€™s website for descriptions and availability of rides. We can help you book an Escamequita River valley ride for the chance to see monkeys in their natural habitat, or set up a beach ride to experience the magnificence of riding horses in the surf at sunset.
