Had a great ride on very responsive horses which were happy to canter as well as walk. The guide was fun and we highly recommend the riding here. We also asked for... More

The blurb states ride from 0745-1100, I was at my hotel at 1015 (hotel is 15 mins away). A bit short-changed, one might say. I have ridden off and on before, just enough to stay on the horse. The horse was fine, nice polite guide, nice polite ride. After 30mins, I hoped there was going to be some trotting, cantering... More

I was a little apprehensive to spring another chunk of change after leaving the zip line, and I was a bit afraid that I wouldn't enjoy the experience, but it was absolutely fabulous. Can't remember our guides name but he was super and we tipped him accordingly. Very fair price fair price for the experience of riding through a rainforest... More

The horse tour was great. We have two children 7 and 9 that were able to enjoy the tour. It usually runs two hours but we cut it down to one for the sake of time and kids. We got an excellent view of the volcano as well as some local fruit trees. We left with a stalk of sugar... More

We booked a 2 hour horseback ride and that was probably about 1.5 hours too long. Our guide was Diego and it was just my girlfriend and I on the tour. We figured this would make the tour even better because we would get more personalized attention. This was not the case in the slightest. First off, I had never... More

Our two families booked a horseback ride to the La Fortuna waterfall. The guides were super great and helpful. Speaking Spanish is not a must, but if you can speak Spanish, you will get a much better experience because the guides open up and tell you much more in their native tongue than they can express in a second language...

Beautiful ride through fields and rain forests. My guide was Diego. He was humorous, informative and fun! I got to go by myself, so had special attention. I would go again, but next time I will ride faster.

Allan Campos was our guide. He was great. Good conversationalist, knowledgable about the plants and animals we observed. He was a very good rider and very patient and reassuring for a family that is not good riders (I am mediocre at best and the rest of my family, including kids 7&9 had never been). Pleasant way to enjoy the natural... More

We had Allan as our guide and he was great! The trail had a little of everything( volcano,jungle, ag etc) the pace was perfect. My boyfriend who has only ridden once before was able to handle it as well so any level of experience is welcome. We got to see some beautiful birds including the hanging nests and a snake... More
