Whether you’re venturing through rugged Andean landscapes dotted with ancient temples, exploring colonial cities by horse-drawn carriage, playing polo with the pros in a luxurious Argentinean estate or riding off into the sunset on a Brazilian honeymoon, in beautiful Latin America the horse really is the traveller’s best friend; and these are just a few of our favourite equestrian escapes...
Riding through the Ecuadorian Andes

Venturing through enormous gorges, climbing rocky ridges and passing snow-capped volcanoes, stunning lagoons and pre-Incan pyramids, you’ll take on a ride unlike any other, each night staying in a different hacienda.

Discovering Havana by horse-drawn carriage
In the Cuban capital, animated locals sip dark rum and dance salsa on cobblestone streets that wind their way between elegant plazas, palaces and cathedrals. On this Caribbean getaway you’ll explore Havana in the most relaxing and luxurious of ways; horse-drawn carriage.
We’ll make sure you get a real taste of Cuba, keeping you topped up with mojitos and taking you to an open-air show featuring Bolero, the Mambo and Cha-cha-cha, and after taking a city tour in an iconic classic car, you’ll be whisked away to Mexico’s Caribbean coast for some sun, sea and sand.
