Grand Cayman outfitter Spirit of the West adds an extra thrill to its horseback-riding adventures. Caymanian owner Paul Rivers leads guests on a nearly two-hour trot along Barkers Beach, one of the island’s most secluded spots. After working up a sweat, riders cool off with a 15-minute ocean swim on horseback.
$125 for group rides or $150 for private rides. This appeared in the November/December 2012 issue.
