  1. Megan Mulrooney Fitzpatric

    A friend and I did came to DR for a week for the purpose of seeing the countryside by horseback. We rode with Ute from Rancho El Contento and could not have asked for a more amazing experience. Ute took us for long gallops on the beach, river crossings, a glimpse into life in mountain villages and provided us with explanations of local flora and fauna. We have already decided to return to do a week of full day rides. There is so much more we want to see!
    Our stay at Charming Countryside Chalet was so pleasant. The rooms are comfortable and spacious and the breakfasts are delectable. Tasty omelettes, fresh fruit and avocado and great coffee (very important!). We enjoyed our downtime by the pool and walking the grounds taking in the beautiful landscape. We’d return tomorrow if we could.
