It is a little more slow paced and calm since you're in a group but there are parts where you can go fast!

Great experience
Danny_N, Nov 2022
Our guides were extremely friendly and helpful. We road into a the rainforest, crossed a little stream and ended up at a river. We didn't swim in it because it was raining and the water was rushing a bit but overall the entire trip was beautiful. Also ended up getting some lunch with the tour at the end and it was delicious.
Highly recommend

It was my daughter birthday and this was a great choice. The guy was very knowledgeable, the horses was clean and very well behaved, and we over well had a great time. We also enjoyed the lunch after it was delicious. I highly recommend this tour if you would love to see some great scenery with great people.
Fantastic horseback ride.

Cesar the guide was amazing. There were 6 in our party and the horses were gentle and very experienced. The 6 miles that we went was beautiful scenery along a river and almost all shaded. We stopped midway at a waterfall so bring your bathing suits and towel. Lunch was fabulous after. 5 star experience.
Best Horseback Ride Adventure!

So much FUN!! Jugo was our guide and was super helpful throughout the trip. Me and my friend really enjoyed this tour. It is a little more slow paced and calm since you're in a group but there are parts where you can go fast! The horses were well kept and super friendly and we ended up going to a waterfall at the end and the guides pointed out animals and cools creatures along the way. The transportation and lunch was great. I would do this tour again in a heart beat!
Really had fun. Raul was very nice...

Michael our guide and Bon Bon our driver where some of the best guides we have ever come across , As it turned out my wife and I were the only two on this tour on this particular day. One small piece of advice , this was real horse riding and not just clip clopping up a well ridden path, we walked , cantered and galloped. We rode for two hours with all the different levels of rain forest, bird and animals being explained as we rode , arriving at a wonderful waterfall where we took a break, the water level being a little low in the dry season to swim. We then returned back to the stable's where we then took a short drive to the tour companies office/compound for a wonderful authentic lunch.
Très belle balade

Je recommande ! Bel après midi ! Pris en charge à l'hotel à 13h, jus de fruit et déjeuner offert à la ferme. Guide (Yohan) super sympa, rassurant, envie d'expliquer plein de choses sur sa ville et sa culture ! Très enrichissant ! 2 a 3h de cheval, avec halte à une jolie mini cascade. Très bon souvenir !
