Horseback riding on a beautiful beach with well-kept horses to suit every level. We felt like we were part of the guides' families for the day - they were great with the kids, enjoyable to talk with and very accommodating. The beach was stunningly beautiful and we rode on the shore and in the water. This isn't a ride where the horses follow each other in a line, so the rider is commanding the horse, and the horses are docile and responsive. The guides made sure we were happy with everything and set us up for lunch and swimming afterwards. Truly one of our favorite days in Costa Rica!

We had an amazing time on the sunset horseback ride. The scenery was so beautiful, one of the prettiest beaches I've ever seen. Diego was very helpful, with customers that had never ridden before. Providing them with instruction and tethering the horse up to his so that the customer felt comfortable. Wish our group had been a little smaller but we still enjoyed the ride.
I loved that we could ride side by side on the beach and we didn't have to be in any certain order. It definitely made the ride more enjoyable. The horses seemed to enjoy getting wet in the surf and I have to admit that it felt good when the water would spray up on me as well. Very well behaved and healthy looking horses.
When we signed up for the tour, we arranged for the taxi driver to pick us up in Manual Antonio National Park area. The drive was a little long but we still thought it was worth it. Our driver was very nice and professional.
Great little restaurant/bar to meet at before and after the ride. IGood drinks and clean bathrooms. I highly recommend this sunset beach ride.

This was the best part of our Costa Rica trip!!! 2 of the riders in my group were experienced and 2 were first time riders. Diego was able to accommodate for both levels of riders. He made sure the beginners felt comfortable and safe and he let the experienced riders have some fun. Beautiful beach ride! Horses were healthy and happy. I'd totally do this tour again if I go back to Costa Rica.
