We did horse riding and fishing as a half day trip from our hotel. The mini zoo wasn't great... The cages were tiny Andrea the animals looked cramped but they didn't seem badly treated per se. I think they have very different animal welfare standards...More

Close to the resorts (10 minutes by horse and buggy) and horseback riding in the mountains. Great lunch at the ranchero station restaurant. A peaceful quiet location to relax and enjoy the scenery. The guides are low key, welcoming and knowledgeable.
