For a tour that runs from 2:30pm to 6pm, we spent 1 hour or less actually riding. The first 30 mins was a gentle walk around the town, pleasant but a little boring. After this we had a break, then around 5-10 mins riding in the fields behind the stables, stopping again at a viewpoint here- which was beautiful and... More

Don't get me wrong, the experience was pleasant and the views were incredible, however the agency promises two hours of riding through the hills on a four hour tour. We got to the farm in 30mins and then we were asked for our experience levels and shown how to ride the horses. The four of us had all had a... More

We took a tour with Franklin's horse back riding. We enjoyed the tour through the back streets of Caldera and were greeted by friendly locals. We then went onto the Ranch and went to the top of a hill for an overlook. Great views and excellent guide. You can't go wrong on a horse back ride. We saw a black... More

We had so much fun on our morning ride with Jaime. We are a family of three with an eight year old boy and no real experience. Jaime gave us quick and easy to follow instructions and we were riding very soon. He is VERY knowledgeable about local plant and wildlife of all kinds. It was a peaceful, easy adventure.... More

Franklin treats his horses and guests really well. Great scenery and fun guides. There are several options to choose from and the guides are great about telling you what you are seeing and how to handle the gentle horses .

We received excellent service from our guide (Jaime), who was very concerned to make our trip a safe and pleasant journey, sharing with us his extensive knowledge of the area. The final part of the trip took us to a hill with great views, including the discovery of some archaeological pieces. Highly recommended.

Lobo aka the Wolfman was the best! His knowledge of the local flora, fruits, herbs, trees and history was inspirational! I was on Sabaton a very strong and beautiful horse. My girl was on Pepper, a Gentile horse with great temperament. Lobo was so great to be with and learn the ways of Boquete in the old days. Loved hearing... More

Amazing scenery. Open hillsides. GREEN. The tour guide showed us some petrified wood made by the last volcanic explosion many years ago.
