Perfect for all levels!! Best riding tour in CR
, Apr 2020
Out of the 6 different horseback riding tours I have done on vacations, one being in Costa Rica, this was one of the best. I was very satisfied as an experienced rider as the guides let me ride at my own pace so I didn't get bored. My two friends who have no experience also felt comfortable and had a blast. The guides were so kind and you can tell that they do this out of passion. They even took awesome pictures for us with our phones without asking us to pay extra (we ended up tipping them very well after) which was very nice and out of the ordinary. They really ensured that we had an amazing time. They were flexible when we asked to change our original date and good with communication too. I cannot recommend them enough!!

Great hosts and great horses. The horses were happy and healthy. They always made sure we felt safe and we were having a good time..

Our guide paired us perfectly with a horse to our ability and ensured we were always comfortable and enjoying our experience. He also selected a few choice locations to take our photos and videos to enjoy long afterwards. It was fun riding on the beach and into the low surf. I definitely recommend this for families!

My daughter and I had an awesome time riding on the beach. This is the only place we found near Los Suenos that actually takes the horses directly on the sand. The owners took the time to take pictures and videos of us riding through the waves and ended up with a delicious meal included on the ride at a little hotel right on the beach. Everything about it was perfect and I will be looking forward to visiting them again. Ali and Carley

I was very impressed by this tour. Diego even called my cell phone the very day I booked it to confirm what time and where we would be picked up. Lunch was excellent, our surroundings beautiful, the horses well cared for and Diego a great host. I would highly recommend!

Although there have only been a few reviews posted thus far, this was one of the biggest highlights of our most recent trip to Costa Rica. Diego is a true ambassador of his country, ranch, and most importantly the horses. He gauges every riders' degree of skill and comfort of and is amicable to meeting the rider where they are at. His horses have been well trained and cared for, as he has worked with them for his entire life. Diego, his brother, and the other cowboys that work on the ranch are friendly, trustworthy, and hardworking people. Support their small ranch and not a large tourism corporation!

Diego is the horse whisperer! My friends and I stayed in Manuel Antonio. We were there for one week and did a different activity every single day. Hands down the best adventure was riding with Diego. He is amazing, you will regret not going. Forget zip lining, ride like a cowboy. Get the shuttle!
