A great way to extend your Galapagos trip is by visiting mainland Ecuador.
And riding horses in the Andes is a great way to see what it’s really like. There is a lot of wildlife, especially birds. And the scenery is outstanding.
Despite being just a few minutes from the city, you really can’t tell. A day trip to Centro Ecuestre Bellavista will give you a glimpse into rural life in Ecuador.
After your ride, you’ll have a traditional meal at the adobe homestead.
In this video, Sebastian (head trainer and owner of the horse riding center) talks about what you can expect on a visit to the facility.
There are more than 40 horses at the facility, including quarter horses, miniature horses, Spanish horses, thoroughbred horses, show-jumping horses and mountain horses (caballo criollo).
