Routes and Itineraries

 

 

Ranch "Los Pingüinos"


Our Ranch is located at the km 75 on the Panamerican Highway South. Its central position in the Mala region offers beautiful and contrasted opportunities for horseback rides on the great and smooth Peruvian Paso Horse.

Our first option, (one or two hours ride) is a direct access from our place to a large Private Area of sand hills and high dunes. During the winter they turn green as varieties of wild flowers transform the desert in colorful flower carpets. Some livestock, donkeys and small horses can be observed resting in the hills. In the summer, one of the great moments is at late afternoon, when the sunset reaches the miles away ocean.

If you wish to discover the nearby valley of Azpitia, a vines and fruits area, you will enjoy our two hours ride there. El Pisco, our National Alcohol, is produced in this zone. You will surely love the countryside landscapes, the beautiful view on the Calango River and you might want to go, before or after the horse ride, to one of the good midday restaurants serving typical dishes (river shrimps among others).

Last but not least, if you have some experience riding horses, you may choose our three hours tour to Puerto Viejo Beach. Going through rather high dunes for about one hour, you will discover the magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean riding down to the seashore and experience the freedom to walk and go at "Paso Llano" close to the moving water. To go back to the Ranch, we will take some paths typical of the Peruvian Coast.
