  1. Hello Rancho Cactus,

    Me and my boyfriend will be in Atacama at the end of this month and have been searching to do a nice horse trek. Your website and pictures look amazing! What options do you offer? And what is the price range? We are looking for a day right something of one night. I have some eight years of riding experience, my boyfriend doesn’t, but I hope that’s alright.

    Best regards,
    Lilya Bisscheroux

    1. Hello Lilya,
      We are not Rancho Cactus but we had a really nice horse ride with them in 2019! After checking on Google, it seems they have closed permanently, I’m really sorry about this. However, there are many companies in San Pedro that I’m sure will welcome you!
      Have a good day!
