"Everything else is just a trail ride..."

Coyote Canyon Adventures invites you to discover the most exclusive horseback riding  adventures, enjoying incredible views from the main canyon of the State of Guanajuato for the nature lovers, or exploring the streets of San Miguel on horseback for those who are looking for a unique experience.

We offer half day horseback riding as well as full day excursions and camping adventures as well as a romantic horseback ride through town - and for experts and amateurs also a weekly route from Guanajuato to San Miguel capital for those who are looking for  an authentic cowboy experience .

Our horseback riding adventures are one of the most recommended activities for corporate groups - do not hesitate to check out more options for companies and special events.


Our horseback rides are definitely not nose-to-tail, unless you choose so. Our motto is " We don't do trail rides. We do Horseback Adventures." We have diverse horseback riding routes established for exploring almost all parts of the canyon, both suitable for beginners, and challenging for experienced riders. 

Our horseback riding excursions are exciting and rugged yet can also be tailored for families with small children or for seniors who would prefer a slower pace. Our youngest client, on an overnight horseback riding adventure, has been 1 & ½ years old; our eldest guest, 83 years young. No riding experience is necessary for horseback adventures, and all ages are welcome.

Our half-day horseback riding excursion includes transportation, comprehensive instruction, riding lesson, 2 ½ hours of riding time + rest stops, and one delicious ranch style meal prepared right after the ride, at one of the casitas, back at the homestead with a total of 5 hours to-and-from San Miguel.

From Guanajuato city to San Miguel de Allende

This adventure will take you accross the outstanding sierra or mountain range that once crossed on horseback the Mexican heroes of Independence, between the towns of Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende

It’s 6 days on horseback and 5 nights camping outdoor in the Guanajuato mountains –all the equipment is provided to guarantee a deep and resting sleep after riding for 3 to 6 hours a day. Once at the camp, you may spend the rest of the day still riding, if you feel like it, or either exploring on foot the mysteries of that historic land such as rivers, waterfalls and a hidden graveyard where the runaway revolucionarios that stayed hidden from the army in those mountains where buried, along with their treasures… 

Contact us if you're interested in the weeklong trail and download the brochure here.

We have a 2 PERSON MINIMUM on our horseback riding excursions.
 Contact us with your available dates so we can join you with a group or if you prefer you can have a private ride covering the cost of an extra rider.
We recommend wearing comfortable laced shoes or boots (no flip-flops or sandals), long pants, long-sleeve shirt or light jacket, sunblock and a hat. In longer excursions –if the weather abides–  don’t forget the swimming suit, as well as warm and extra clothes for the overnight trips.
