The Scenic Route: A Journey Through Nature's Canvas

The horseback riding adventure in Panama begins from the remote South East beach of the island Boca Brava. As you embark on this picturesque journey, you’ll traverse natural green fields where the grass resembles velvet under the tropical sun. The path leads you to a sprawling farm teeming with cows and wild horses, adding an adventurous touch to your experience.

Ascending the hill brings a refreshing breeze, unveiling an incredible panoramic view with the sea stretching behind you, where the landscape becomes a mesmerizing blend of jungle, sea, and sand. The journey continues descending through the lush jungle, where the shade offers a welcome relief and you eventually return to our private beach, located at Selva Terra Resort
