What a wonderful experience. My husband and I really enjoyed our morning with our guide and horses. It was obvious the horses were well cared for and that was very important to me. The beach we rode along was beautiful and serene. I will definitely return with more friends and family to share this experience with them.

10/10 experience! Gustavo...
Chelsei_L, Mar 2023
10/10 experience! Gustavo and our guide Adrien were amazing. The beach feels private, and you are in a small group. We rode the horses through the water and down to the mangroves. I've done a lot of horseback riding tours in my travels, and this one is top of my list!
Ok experience
Jessica_M, Feb 2023
Nice experience, we waited for over an hour for our ride though. The description advised we would be able to ride per our experience, but we didn’t really get to go faster than a walk. A few seconds of trotting here and there. Scenery was beautiful Guides were friendly
There was no hotel...

There was no hotel transfer, and it’s$35 to and from Jaco each way. I was not lead to believe this while booking.
My awesome 60th birthday
Kathleen_E, July 2022
My daughter and I are experienced riders and we chose this tour because I read we could canter in the surf. This was a celebration of my 60th birthday. Gustavo, our guide, was wonderful as were his horses. They were freshly shod and healthy. Wonderful manners. We enjoyed a two hour ride from his farm and along the coast of a beautiful beach. We rode in the surf and were able to spend plenty of time trotting and a little cantering. Very fun. I highly recommend!

My boyfriend and I gave this tour a shot. It was truly a wonderful experience. Very worth it. Gustavo was incredible and took great care of the horses. It shows is love and passion towards his business. I’m so happy I chose this particular horse tour. Thank you!!! Lots of love. -Christian and Victoria

Best riding experience ever!
Charlene_B, Sept 2021
4 of us went - 2 of us were experienced, one had never ridden before and another had ridden a few times. Gustav truly made it a personalized fabulous memory! We got to run the horses a lot, while the others got to enjoy their time walking or trotting. Everyone felt safe! The horses were well cared for and very well trained! The beach was like walking on glass and mist made it seem heavenly, totally amazing, it was a dream come true to ride horses on the beach!
Tom_V, Sept 2021
So fun! Had a blast! Would definitely go back here. Our guide Gustavo had a great personality and was so accommodating.
Perfect for all levels!! Best riding tour in CR
Abigail_L, 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..
Perfect Day
Stephanie_H, Jan 2020
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!

Great tour with a knowledgeable guide, who was super friendly. Well trained horses, not your “typical trail horses”—they follow directions well. Beautiful sunset tour.

The tour was amazing! Diego was a great tour guide! He let us ride our horses based off our experience, so you won't be stuck walking if you can run! Great trip!

Brad D, Aug 2017
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

Michael H, Aug 2017
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!
