Purposely confusing title

The program isn’t clear, it is sold as a two activity program, horseback riding and turtle release, it never specifies it is one or the other.
Great experience!

The entire experience was great, though the highlight for my kids was holding baby crocodiles and turtles. Jesus was a great guide as well.
Acapulco horseback ride and baby turtle release

Rudy and Jesus were awesome tour guides. They made our day! During the ride they described all the sites and took time to answer questions. Made sure we had a great time on the horseback ride, and after the turtle release they offered to let us ride along to see the divers with another couple. They packed a lot into a day and it was well worth the price.
What a great experience.

Alfonso and his co-worker were fantastic. We really enjoyed the young gentleman who also assisted us with our horseback riding Adventure. Alfonso did a wonderful job of explaining some of the Mexican culture to us we found it very knowledgeable. Thank you to Alfonso and everyone for such a great experience we really appreciated it.

Amazing gift I offered my boyfriend. We were just 2 taking this tour and the beach was completely empty. It was such a romantic time! Lupita picked us up at the hotel and was really nice, talkative and helpful! The person who took us for the horse ride was very kind too and took nice pictures of us. We ended up releasing the baby turtles that were born a day before and tLupita showed us a video on how to preserve turtles by simply adapting our habits on the beach before releasing them. Overall, the experience was great and I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to try. Again a special thank you to Lupita who has been really kind and helpful.

Tour guide was awesome. The releasing the turtles into the Pacific Ocean was an incredible experience, then later we did the horseback riding and it was a treat!. This was my first time riding and the Sammy and Jose the guides put me at ease and constantly checking to make sure I was ok. Definitely will be fondly remembered and recommended. Nothing is better than riding a horse and releasing a baby turtle along the sandy beaches in Acapulco! .... Well, maybe a cold beer at the end of it, but do yourself a favor and do this tour!

This was a fantastic tour. We enjoyed a relaxing ride on the horses along the beach, and doing our part by releasing the most vulnerable baby turtles was a nice experience. Our tour guides were fantastic! Very funny and informative, they really know Acapulco well, and even took us to a great hole-in-the-wall restaurant that we might've missed! I will definitely do this again on our next trip!
Muy interesante
