I had an awesome experience. It’s a small group (which I prefer) where the tour guide takes you out to the beautiful black sand beach. I recommend doing the early slot as it can get quite hot later in the day. Lunch was nice, a typical Tica meal. Remember transportation is not included but can add

This was an amazing tour. I took my then girlfriend, now fiance, and we had an amazing time. The riding instructor was superb. He taught us about the personalities of each horse, took care to ensure rider was matched to mount, and spent ample time with each of us along the ride. The beach was beautiful -- the views were simply breathtaking.
The entire tour felt very personal and accessible. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
It is always important to make sure the animals are treated properly on tours like this. The horses were simply amazing. They were well fed, well exercised, and very well cared for by our tour guides. Once again, this whole adventure was amazing and I would highly recommend it.

So much fun. Beautiful beach and guide. Diego and his brother are so kind and patient with those whose horseback riding experience is limited. The horses were beautiful and kindly raised. Like vex the entire experience. This was our best experience in the Jaco area.
