Take part in this short-getaway horseback riding excursion in Mexico! The most complete way to experience the canyon both by day and night is to do this overnight adventure. This program includes the visit to the ranch, the horseback riding excursion, and free time to explore the canyon, as in the half-day and full day rides, and also enjoy swimming, roping lessons, and night and early morning rides.
You will be camping in Boca de la Cañada community. The camping includes all camping gear (tents, sleeping bags, folding chairs, etc), four campfire meals (complete with ice cold beers for the adults and marshmallows and hotdogs for the kids at night), a long evening bonfire, and clear skies, permitting fantastic stargazing. You can sleep in tents or Coyote Canyon Adventures can arrange their stone cabins for you.
The total duration of the riding trip is 27 hours. You start at 08:30 and you will get back into downtown the next day at 11:00. On the first day, you will start the excursion visiting a ranch and learning about daily activities such as hand-made tortillas and traditional Mexican sauces making. You will search for eggs for your breakfast and, after having breakfast, Coyote Canyon Adventures will take you to Boca de la Cañada community where the horseback riding adventure will start and your camp is located.
You will receive a brief introduction about how to ride and after it, you start the horseback riding in the deepest part of the canyon, crossing the river and enjoying the flora and fauna of the place. There will be different opportunities to gallop, rest, and discover the canyon, searching for quartz in the river, etc. You will reach the highest part of the canyon from where you will enjoy a spectacular view. There, you will have the opportunity of rappelling down the 150-foot cliffs of the canyon
This horseback trail riding excursion gives you enough time to take a midnight ride all the way to a neighbouring village, where you can stock up on some essentials, or pick up a good tequila to help keep the stories flowing around the campfire. For the more extreme riders, this horseback trail riding excursion also includes a section where you can gallop or even race full speed through the darkness!
Of course, that part is optional and not recommended for the faint of heart, although it is actually very safe as horses have excellent night vision and both the horses and your guides know by heart every twist and turn of the trails you ride on. On the next day, after breakfast, you will continue discovering the great canyon and the natural landscapes before going back to San Miguel downtown. You can complete your adventure relaxing in the favorite hot springs (not included).

Hence, San Miguel’s designation as “the forge of Mexican independence”. San Miguel is a magical town with precious colonial, baroque, and gothic architecture that brings one back to the era of the viceroyalty and the Mexicans’ fight for liberty.
