The horse back riding was so much fun & Mary & Brian were wonderful to have as tour guides. The horses were beautiful and well trained. If you have any fears Mary will be there to guide you. And beautiful views. I definitely recommend this tour.

Beautiful, peaceful, fun!

Maria, our guide was wonderful! It was so assuring she loves her horses, they only do one ride a day. As an animal lover it was great to hear she cares for them so much. Had an amazing ride, very beautiful scenery.

The guide makes the experience

We had a great time horse back riding on the beach! We do wish the guide was more involved and ensured our comfort on the trip. I am an experienced rider and had to end up teaching my husband the “how to’s” as it wasn’t given by the guide. I imagine if I wasn’t there, my husband would have struggled to have a good time. However the horses were well mannered and getting to gallop on the beach was a once in a lifetime experience!

Loved riding on the beach. Our guide gave us the option of stopping for a fresh Pina Colada in a pineapple. She always made sure we were doing ok and happy with the ride.

We loved Maria! She did a great job with the horses and gave us the opportunity to have a pit stop and enjoy the best Pina coladas of our lives right on the beach!
Amazing horseback riding experience along stunning beaches!

Wonderful horseback riding experience for my two kids and I - beautiful horses, lovely guide with lots of knowledge about the jungle and animals - stunning beaches! We are all beginners and felt just great about the whole time!
Horseback beach tour

Everyone should experience this tour at least once in their life! The convenience of the pick-up/ drop-off service made this process as smooth as possible for us. Maria, our guide, was very knowledgeable, helpful, and super friendly the whole time. We loved that the guides stopped and took photos for us without our prompting. We gave the horses (and ourselves) a break halfway through, and we were able to sip piña coladas by a beautiful beach. The guides are great at matching you with a horse that suits your speed, just mention your preference in the beginning. I’d give the whole tour 10 stars if I could.

This is a great activity for those who like to horseback ride and have done a little previously. There is very basic, minimal instruction provided, so a little prior familiarity with being on horseback was helpful. However, we enjoyed the relative independence of the ride. The locations were beautiful! We walked for about half an hour along the beach, then under some of the larger trees along the beach so we would have shade. Finally, we spent more than an hour trekking through the forest trails up to a beautiful lookout point on the side of the mountain. Along the way, we saw a family of howler monkeys, and Maria pointed out some interesting local flora. Overall, a great activity - bring plenty of insect repellent!

Thank you for writing this review and for choosing Pininos adventures as your tour operator. We are very happy to hear that we were able to arrange for a successful trip for both, We hope we can welcome you back to Costa Rica soon!...

Lots of fun. We didn't spend much time actually riding on the beach, but we did get to see a deserted beach and Playa Conchal, which was beautiful. My guide was terrific, very patient with a beginner, and actually managed to get me on and off my horse.
Simplemente Excepcional!

Me encantó todo, la guía fue espectacular. Marielos es una guía que no pierde ningún detalle, nos hizo sentir como en casa. Estuvo todo el tiempo pendiente a que estuviéramos bien, que la pasáramos de lo mejor y así fue. Ella hizo que nuestra experiencia fuera inolvidable. La recomiendo 100%.
