FULL DAY MOUNTAIN RIDE

Your adventure begins at a traditional cattle corral, located in the village of Santa Fe. From there we set out into the backcountry, following the Santa Maria river-valley heading towards the foothills of Cerro Tute and the mountain range that forms the crest of the continental divide.

This geographical feature also indicates the start of the 72,636 hectares of Santa Fe National Park; home to an abundance of wildlife including the second largest big cat population in Panama. We touch the park at its crest, in-front of us an expanse of jungle that ends on the sandy beaches of the Caribbean Sea. As the landscape increases in altitude you are rewarded with the most spectacular views of the central highlands of Panama.

We then begin our decent, with the view of our destination nestled in the valley below. We return to the quaint village of Santa Fe mid-afternoon. We hitch the horses before relaxing with a cool beverage while enjoying a satisfactory spread of locally prepared dishes.

CUSTOMIZED MULTI-DAY ITINERARIES

With a multitude of backcountry roads and paths running through our Central Highlands we are able to access unique trails, stunning vistas and constantly changing micro-climates. Over the period of your stay you will build a special connection and trust with your horse, while as a team you traverse along some of the most challenging terrains, unique to the isthmus of Panama.

Itineraries are designed to your interest. Below is a sample of what's available and much more:

 

Take trails deep into the national park, along narrow indigenous footpaths, under immense jungle foliage with toucans and bright blue morpho butterflies. Bathe at the base of hidden waterfalls with deep blue pools seldom visited by outsiders. 

Pick up the pace and ride down in the foothills where the land is flatter and more open allowing you to fly past remote farms and cattle posts. Catch a glimpse into life of rural Panama where self-sustainiable living is a necessity, not a trend and your success that year is based on the rainfall and your own hard work in the fields. 

 

Engage in a local cattle wrangling experience, either moving the cattle between pastures or bringing them down from the mountains for a routine check up and vaccination. Discover first hand how the local way of life often revolves around livestock and connection to the land.
