    Horseback riding

    Very close to Colonia Tovar is a village called EL JUNQUITO. In between this two is a very good place to go horseback riding. Actually, as you drive down the road you will see various places with horses where you can do this.. but choose wisely where to stop. In some of the places the horses look so sad.. and unhealthy.. I would not ride them! Here, you have the option of riding the horse in various laps for about 10.000 bs. (about $5). They give you 30 minutes to ride either up on a hill and troughout a long path.. or a shorter and more linear path. I chose the smoother surface!
