NileGuide Expert tip:
After you finish your ride, try the coconut shrimp at Tres Marias Restaurant
It's difficult to think of anything more exhilarating that horseback riding along the crashing surf on the beach in Mexico's Pie de la Cuesta
. The coastline north of Acapulco is called the Costa Grande, or Big Coast, and at Pie de la Cuesta a narrow sandbar called separates serene Coyuca Lagoon from the Pacific Ocean.
To ride some very laidback horses, look for José Luis on the beach in front of Tres Marias Restaurant. He takes visitors on leisurely rides up and down the sand for one hour (MX$250/US$25 per person) or ½ hour (MX$120/US$12 per person for one half hour). The surf at Pie de la Cuesta is far too rough for swimming so a horseback ride lets you enjoy the sea air and get some exercise, too. Locals gather here every afternoon to savor Acapulco's most dazzling sunsets, a sight not to be missed.
