We would like to visit Rancho Xotolar on 22 of feb. I have a couple of concerns. 1. I am 59. I do exercise & walk a lot but am not a lightweight! Is there a weight restriction? 2. While we aren't horseback riders, it's the heights that I'm primarily concerned with. I love beautiful vistas, I am worried that the heights might be overwhelming for me. Do other people have issues with this? Do most people overcome it successfully? I think my husband and adult daughter will be fine but would consider letting them go and just waiting for them. It would make me sad to miss it though.
