      Best tour in Costa Rica -- not even kidding!!!
      Timothy_P, Feb 2024
      This tour was our favorite horseback riding experience EVER! We were greeted by friendly staff at a brand-new facility. The horses are very clearly taken care of here. The attention to detail by these folks is unprecedented. The equipment fit great and the horses, though full of personality, were very well behaved and loving. The private tour is highly recommended. It was the two of us plus our guide. The ride itself was a blast. Our guide is very knowledgeable and lives in the same town. He took us out into the raw countryside along sugar cane fields. A gorgeous river ran alongside of it. We had an opportunity to gallop and canter along its banks. We spotted a few different sloths along our journey and were treated to amazing landscape panoramic views. We took a few breaks to chat and allow the horses to drink water from fresh streams we crossed. Toward the end of the ride we spotted a giant Macaw and received a tour of the city nearby, providing a real view into Costa Rican life. We simply cannot recommend this tour enough!!! If I could give it 10 stars I would. The value, views, treatment, and experience are all top notch.
      Perfect trip for equestrians!

      This was a fantastic trip and we would go back to do multiple days of riding in a heartbeat! While they have a wide range of horses to accommodate all guests if you are an equestrian this is the trip to book! Horses are well cared for, talented and athletic. Our guide Andres was wonderful and we truly rode through the country side walk trip canter gallop. As it was private just us and our guide by the end it felt like a hack with close friends! If you ride book this and ask for Andres!
      Really sweet ride!

      This was such a lovely experience!. My partner and I went on a 3.5 hour ride with our guide, Andreas. He was so kind and knowledgeable, and even shared his contact in case we had general questions about Costa Rica and the rest of our time here. The horses were very clearly well cared for. He told us that the horses work on a week-on, week-off basis, and only go out once a day during their work weeks, which I so respect, being a horsewoman and someone who has had a fair amount of experience with working horses in tourism settings. I HIGHLY recommend this place!
      Great Tour

      Danny was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable about the local wildlife and area as well as tailoring the tour to us and our riding abilities. If you have ridden before and want to try something different this is the place to go! Equally I am sure if you were more nervous you would be in safe hands. Despite having both ridden extensively in the past we were challenged in new ways in the saddle, up and down banks and crossing a river. The horses were fantastic and looked after us well despite inclement weather. We also go to spot and see a wide array of wildlife, including an array of birds and multiple sloths! 11/10 if I could
      Great value, lots of fun!
