Nice but price doesn’t match the actual experience, too much $
Mary_P
, Sep 2021
Roberto was our guide, very nice. For the price it really wasn’t much. The ads and pics make you believe you’re going through tropical forests and that was not the case. It was just some overgrowth, still pretty but not at all what was expected. No exotic animals as advertised, I saw 1 iguana on a tree and that was it. Was not prepared for the beach, expected sand but it was all Shells. Saw some cool fish while snorkeling but getting back on the beach up to our little table was painful for the feet. Was also offered a drink as soon as we got there, was not explained that it was not included in what we purchased, so ended up paying $8 for 2 cokes. If it weren’t for Roberto being so nice and the horses being so good, I would probably would leave only 1-2 stars.

Great!

A great experience. I own my own horse at home, so the owner took me to the side and we did a lot of galloping along the beach and straightaways. My husband on the other side was completely content with walking/trotting with the group. It was great for all levels of experience!

Peaceful pretty ride !

Very enjoyable, peaceful afternoon ride along beautiful nearly deserted beach and pretty backroads and trails. Roberto and Jose had the horses ready when we arrived and were friendly, patient guides who clearly cared for their horses and their clients. Horses were well-behaved. Helmets were provided. Good to bring some insect repellent if riding in shorts as there were a few mosquitoes. My two teens and I had a great time !

We had a good time as a family and thankfully had no accidents, but I would caution anyone to think that this tour is being led by a trained and seasoned guide--it is not. Our guide had limited English skills and gave very perfunctory instructions at the start of the tour. I don't think he was a licensed guide, since he lacked the professionalism, knowledge and safety briefings that we experienced on other tours with licensed guides. Apparently in Costa Rica, customers can ask to see the licensure of guides, as this is a regulated industry. I wish we had known that before we booked this tour. For example, when we asked what sorts of fish we would see while snorkeling, he said, "I don't know. Fish?" He also had very limited knowledge of the flora and fauna around us. For example, we saw several iguanas on our ride and he had no information to share about them. He also told us that he had tested negative for COVID but I don't believe that given the high price of testing in Costa Rica and no actual proof that he tested negative. Here are some of the things that were NOT communicated to us: 1) That there were 2 opportunities to stop and snorkel, so if we needed towels, slippers, sunblock, etc. we should bring it with us. That information was never communicated to us in any emails prior to the experience nor prior to taking off on the horses. 2) Instructions on how to control the horses and how to properly ride them. He didn't cover the basics of safety. My son's horse went into a full gallop and he didn't know how to ride a galloping horse. Fortunately, no accident happened but the guide never told us how to manage the galloping horse (or even told not to gallop at all and how to stop the horse if it did start). 3) No life vests or helmets were provided at all. If we had known that, we would have prepared ourselves for that lack of safety equipment (possibly even cancelled), but instead had to go with the lack of those when we arrived. Incidentally, the snorkeling equipment they provided was faulty and in poor condition. I wish I had known those issues before I booked this trip and I caution anyone with children to consider safety carefully before you book with this company. If you don't mind taking your safety into your own hands and feel this is worth the money spent, that's your call.

Best horseback riding in Guanacaste
Alexandra_S
, Jan 2021
We absolutely loved our tour with Ivan! He was helpful, informative and made the whole riding experience incredible. His stories and recommendations for the area made the tour even better. We were especially impressed with how well the horses are taken care of. If you’re looking for the best horseback riding, this is it :)

My wife and I enjoyed the ride with a pair of well mannered horses. We went to playa brasilito. Orlando was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would go again.
