Day 1: 
Following your arrival in Sao Paulo, it is a short internal flight to Porto Seguro in Bahia. You will be met on arrival and transferred to Pousada do Outeiro (two hour drive). Settle into your room and later, have a ride briefing and learn more about the region. For your nights in Caraiva the choice of alcoholic beverages is quite limited. During your briefing today, your guide will take a note of your preferred drinks so that these can be purchased in advance. Dinner and overnight at Pousada do Outeiro.

Day 2:
We enjoy a quick breakfast (8:00 am) before departing at 9:00 by car to the Polo Field (5 minutes) where we are introduced to our horses and given time to become familiar with them. Walk, trot and canter around the beautiful polo field, which has stunning views of the ocean and beaches below you. Once you are happy with your mount, we set off on a ride along Jacuma beach in the direction of Barra do Rio Frades. We continue on, crossing through a swampy area in the direction of the Itaporanga Village where we visit the “Indian Native Village of Imbiriba”. Meet the Pataxó Indians and see their traditional dance, * (*program with a minimum of 5 riders). Their handicraft will be shown (optional shopping). Have lunch at the Bigode’s ( typical local restaurant). Following lunch we visit Elma's Forest Wood Design Project., returning afterwards to the Pousada Outeiro . Dinner held in the Pousada.

Day 3:
Breakfast served at 8:00 am. Ready to leave at 9:00 am crossing the Outeiro on to Trancoso Village through the Buffalo Farm onto the Beach. Our trail on a deserted beach offers the opportunity of some good canter by the sea. In Trancoso our Guest House is just a few meters from the “Quadrado” the place where everything happens in the village. The dinner this night is up to you in one of the many good restaurants in the so-called Popular Square (Quadrado). Trancoso is an charming village located in a paradisiacal portion of the coast of Bahia, world wide famous by its dazzling beaches, seashore cliffs, rivers and lagoons.

Once in Caraiva we cross the river by boat while horses spend the night with Andre on a farm in New Caraiva. We lodge in the Pousada Cores do Mar and have dinner in the French Man`s Pizza Place. Caraiva is an old fishermen village; upon arrival we notice a large and turbulent river surrounded by mangroves and crossed by canoes and boats of all kinds. On the other side, a series of small colored houses shadowed by large trees and coconut palm trees. It is a beautiful and unforgettable view! Once there are no vehicles around it is very nice to be able to walk quietly on its charming sand-covered streets.
