The website gave the impression that the scenery would be spectacular. In reality you trek through really dull countryside with no views. The people were not friendly. Very expensive for a dull trip. Save your money.

We went horse riding with Camp Corral and we had a wonderful time. The guides are lovely and over see everything. My youngest is seven and he rode for the first time independently. Worth doing the extended tour

13 year old and mom enjoyed this ride ALOT! If you don’t like to ride (I don’t) there is not much to do at the corral, so consider leaving and coming back while the family rides.
