Rhythm on horseback is a very successful horse show that has been run since 1993. Since our visitors requested it, we started offering feria del sur (southern fair) in 2000. It consists in dinner with a flamenco show that, along with ritmo a caballo make the perfect andalusian mix. Without doubt, the fifteen-year experience and the quality of the shows ensure customer satisfaction. The horse show features five different performances. Its runtime is one and a half hours, with a 10-minute interval.
Sol Meliá, a worldwide leader in holiday travel, is a hotel chain with 50 years’ experience. Its 350 hotels are located in more than 30 countries, and the Meliá Don Pepe is undoubtedly one of its finest.

The Costa del Sol’s place among international holiday destinations has to do with its enviable weather and its superb leisure offer, ranging from sun & sand, golf and water sports to food, shopping, and corporate services. To meet growing demand, Málaga has developed a solid hospitality infrastructure, including nineteen five-star hotels, most of which feature spas and business centres. This high-standing infrastructure is complemented by as many comfort and luxury services as can be imagined, and so it lives up to every visitor’s expectations. Thus, the province’s first-rate facilities are enhanced by the kind, efficient and highly-qualified staff, trained to promptly answer all guests’ needs.
Complementing all these high-standing services, the Costa del Sol also has exclusive leisure venues. At the Torrequebrada and the Marbella casinos, guests can have a drink, gamble, or attend parties or shows. Horse lovers can visit the riding school for great dressage shows and horse competitions, or the racecourse in Mijas for exciting horse races, perhaps with the hope of having the winning horse’s name written on your betting ticket.
The Costa del Sol Racecourse is located in El Chaparral, an urban development in Mijas Costa. It can be accessed from both La Cala de Mijas and road N-340, opposite the Fuengirola Castle. It is open all year round, holding day races on Sundays in autumn, winter and spring (11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.), and night races on Saturdays in the summer (10:30 p.m. – 1:30 a.m.)
The Costa del Sol Riding School is located in Estepona, near the Padrón River and one kilometre away from the beach. The riding school -surface area: 90,000 sq m-was created in 1998, with the aim of fostering the love of horse riding as a sport while organising equestrian competitions and shows. The school’s facilities are also used for cultural, social, and corporate events.
