Enjoy a leisurely ride through herds of water buffalo, lakes teeming with ducks and local fauna, sugar cane fields, and our on-site horse-breeding operation. The Equestrian and Polo are directed by Fernando Arata, originally from Argentina, a professional polo player with ample experience in the field.
