You'll travel in air conditioned comfort, about 50 minutes from the pier, to the tiny village of Las Palmas. Your professional tour guide will take you on a brief drive through the village, just 5 minutes from the ranch. Upon arrival, you'll be offered a refreshing drink and you'll be matched with the horse best suited to your size and riding ability. Mount up as your guide leads you on a leisurely trek into the jungle and across shallow riverbeds. The scenery is breathtaking and your guide will be happy to offer cold bottled water or sodas along the way. After an hour of riding, you'll return to the ranch, wash up in the modern facilities and sit down to an authentic Mexican Barbecue meal, with all your favorites. As a Carnival guest, you're invited to join the expert chef in the kitchen, where you’ll be shown how to make handmade tortillas. Don’t forget to try some for yourself. During your meal, you may enjoy an unlimited open-domestic bar service and afterward, you'll be treated to a show featuring the champion lasso artist and his magnificent dancing horse. Your drive back to the ship is approximately 45 minutes.
