This morning we are going to ride down to Playa Yankee, another of the beaches that was used in the filming of "Survivor Nicaragua" It was this beach where the survivors held there Tribal Council meetings.Luckily we will arrive at low tide, so it is a great time to go for a canter at the water's edge.
I will update this post later with more highlights of my adventures in Nicaragua later...............
I have just returned from another stellar day at the Rancho.Today we went to Playa Yankee, which in my humble opinion, may be one of the finest riding beaches in all of Nicaragua. I mean this beach is massive. I will have to "Google" it to find out how long it is. It is so nice for cantering along in the surf. There are no rocks,stones, sticks, etc... I see why CBS,chose this beach for filming. It is just stunning.
You can see we are a 'stone's throw" from Costa Rica !
We arrived on the beach around 10:00 am, and found it almost deserted.We did see a couple people way of in the distance, but other than that the 6 of us had the entire beach to ourselves.
This is the ultimate beach ride! If you get the chance to visit San Juan del Sur Nicaragua you absolutely must reserve yourself a ride of a lifetime with Blue and Jamie at Rancho Chilamate!
.Does this look like fun ?......or what???
You have to see this beach in person. It is stunning! You can almost have the entire beach to yourself! If you look off in the distance a few miles away is the coastline of Costa Rica :-)
Look at this horse! This is Durango. He is a great horse to ride if you like to run on the beach....So does he!!
Next stop is Costa Rica.................Giddyup!
NOoooooooo! I don't want to go home yet!!
In our group today we had 3 people from the U.K., and they were a lot of fun to hang out with for the day.We spent an hour or so running up and down the beach before returning to the ranch for a refreshing drink of Flor de Cana rum. I am not normally a drinker of rum, however this is reportedly one of the world's best !
Blue and Jamie come out on every ride. Jamie is the Trail Boss, and Blue takes fabulous "action shots' of all the rider's. Which is really a great thing to do, because it is almost impossible to take a good picture while you are cantering down the beach!!
see, there is Blue capturing another moment!
Out in front, is Jamie. His horse is really sweet! His name is J.R. Cool Stinger . We are headed home from our beach ride. Time for a much needed siesta, oh ya, and some rum!!
