The horses were well taken care of and the guides were funny and talkative. 3 of them went with each group to ensure everyone stayed together and had a great time.

Horseback riding was very fun! We had a great time and all the horses were trained very well in that we all felt very safe riding on them especially for people who never rode on a horse before. It would've been better if they were more organized. We did a lot of standing around and waiting and it sucked up a huge amount of our time that we were not able to go and explore the island. Very nice workers but they need a better system. Read Less

Hired private transport off the terminal (Puerto Rico Travel Connections) and the owner, Danny was wonderful. We told him what we wanted to do and he took us everywhere we asked. Spent 6 hours with him, he took us to a natural water slide in the Rainforest River where all the locals go- it was absolutely amazing. From here, he gave us a tour of Old San Juan. In total, a 6 hour tour, with 5 of us going horseback riding through the rainforest; sliding in a natural water park and a thorough tour of the forts, etc in San Juan- $450 for all. Can’t beat it- look him up, he has a website! Read Less

The excursion was fantastic. We were picked up on time, drove 1 hour away, rode lovely horses through beautiful landscape, and were returned to the ship on time. However, I had a lot of anxiety booking independently and I doubt I would do it again. I was scared we wouldn't make it back in time, they didn't answer the phone prior to picking us up so I was nervous they wouldn't show... everything went off perfectly, but I think I'd rather have the peace of mind booking through the ship. San Juan itself reminds me of Miami, which is near where we live, and didn't feel at all exotic. Read Less

Puerto Rico – Horseback riding at La Hacienda Took a van to the La Hacienda ranch which was about a 20-30-minute ride. The horses were very gentle and the guide was very good. We rode the horses for about an hour and a half and then it started to rain so we had to return the stable. We got stuck in a bad traffic jam on the way back and almost missed the ship. The ship waited for us which is one reason I always book my excursions through Carnival. Please make sure to bring sunscreen and wear long pants and closed shoes since the bugs were out and there were stickers along the trail which would cut you up. Read Less

The actual horseback riding was wonderful. It was a wonderful horseback ride but after our ride, we got back on the bus who took us to where we started and Jeff the owner of the Horseback riding and ATV adventure got on the bus, this was about 1:45 pm and said we had to get off bus for another 1/2 hour as the excursion must be 4 hours he said. We explained we needed to be back on the ship for 2:30 pm and it was about a 1/2 hour bus ride back to the port. None of us wanted to go back up top and get food or a drink but we were made to wait. Then our bus driver stopped at the Columbus shopping square and said this was a good place to get souvenirs...at this point we were already LATE and couldn't believe the driver did not know what time we had to be back at the port. Very stressful. So the ship was made to wait for us 18 passengers. I went to Guest services to inform them of what happened so they could look into it and perhaps avoid having this excursion be late getting back to port but she didn't seem too concerned and said she'd report to the Excursion team. Someone from that department did call me in room next day and after explaining what had happened she said Yes the excursion does need to be 4 hours....What the heck, so make the ship late ?? I was not impressed by Royal's response. This caused all of us stress as we were late and had to hustle down the port as all the employee's were waiting to have us on so ship could leave. I know passengers are assured the ship won't leave so long as excursion is booked through Royal but this was unnecessary!! Read Less

I would've liked the group to be a bit smaller (there were about 24 of us) and been able to do a little more than just walk. But the guides were really fun and the views were incredible.

Carabali Rainforest Park Horseback Riding. The pre-ride instructions were very good and the guides did a good job of matching riders to the horses. The ride through the park was great. It was not as hot and humid as I had expected, but we were there the first week of April, so it wasn’t yet the hottest part of the year. We took a 30 minute break/rest about halfway through the ride next to a flowing stream/creek (the guides called it a river), where we were able to buy refreshments. The tour guides were excellent and made sure that everyone stayed safe. I was very impressed with the guide in the back of the pack. There was a mentally challenged young man in our group who had been put on the bus by himself by his grandmother. He was frightened when he first got on the horse and started to panic when the horse started moving around. When he started yelling, the horse became frightened and also was starting to panic. The tour guide quickly took control of the horse and did an excellent job of calming both the horse and the young man. In no time, the young man was laughing and having a good time and the guide stayed with him throughout the entire ride. Read Less
