“3 Bored Amigos” Se Renta Caballos series

On Wednesdays and Saturdays the cruise ships come into Ensenada. Some of the tourists take day trips to La Bufadora, which I hear is THE most visited tourist attraction in Mexico. On the road to La Bufadora is a place where the local vaqueros rent their horses to the tourists for the short ride to our gorgeous, 5-mile long sandy beach.

For many people, riding horses on the beach is a dream-come-true or bucket-list item. Therefore, I am always really surprised at how unprepared many of the people are that come rent horses. Gold lame slippers, flip-flops, no sweater (it can be cold and windy on the beach), little kids, anything goes.

The vaqueros don’t care. The people climb off the bus and onto a horse…nothing like American…no forms or waivers, not even any instructions. They get a bunch of riders ready and one or 2 of the cowboys walk or ride with them. The beach is about 1/4 mile away and then they get a nice long ride on the beach. I get to ride for free whenever I want! 🙂

This is one of my Se Renta Caballos series, which means Horses for Rent.
