Jesús 'Chucho' Villavicencio

Horseback Riding in Puerto Escondido

Señor Villavicencio guides horseback trips (one hour each way) along the lushly vegetated Río Manialtepec, from San José Manialtepec village, 23km west of Puerto Escondido to the Atotonilco Hot Springs. You crisscross the river several times en route to your dip in the hot springs, so it's best to go between October and March, when the river is not too high. Call ahead.
