Pedro Lopez is an amazing man. He's been here for many years, and is very dependable and interesting. If you like horses, be sure to visit Pedro. He is often at the main road by the bus stop, and speaks English. Trustworthy and honest !!!

Pedro Lopez took us on a horseback tour through the jungle to the Predator set. It took about two hours. Pedro is really a friendly local rancher with deep roots in the community. A couple of our party had never been on a horse, so he offered just to walk with us and train the neophytes on basic handling skills.... More

Today January 22nd 2016 my family and I went out horseback riding in Mismaloya at Rancho Lopez. Pedro Lopez the owner/guide picked us up at our hotel at 9:45am and drove us to his ranch. He had the horses ready to go and we took a little trip through his town and up in the jungle. Pedro is very experienced... More

Pedro and Gustavo were wonderful guides on a ride up a winding road through the jungle. We stopped at the Predator set at the top and could have lunch, swim, zip line if we wanted to, before we came back down. Pedro works very hard and exists strictly on referrals. He doesn't overwork his horses. He cares about Mismaloya very... More

It is most famous for the filming of ‘The Night Of the Iguana’ but however there are very little remains of the film set now. However well worth a trip is with Rancho lopez where you will be taken to the film set of... More

If you are a small group of 2 or 3 in the Mismaloya or PVR area, I highly recommend taking this 3 hour equestrian excursion. Pedro is a great guide and takes great pride in providing a quality experience. His horses and mules are smaller but very sturdy and comfortable for those that haven't ridden a lot. The trip is...
