With horses like Christina and Moreno me and my daugther Emma went on a lovely tour with the amazing Rudy. We had/have no experience at the horseback but he showed us how to do and was a really good teacher.

Rudy will charm your pants off in about 5 different languages. Rudy, his wife, and the other guides are truly lovely people. I went on the Las Galeras/La Playita daytrip ride, arranged last minute like everything I do, and tagged along with a couple who had never been on a horse and a lady who had been riding since age...

We had a blast at Rudy's. The girls I rode with were experienced but I wasn't and they made it alot of fun. The horses were great and the tour guides were super nice.

Rudy was an incredible guide as our group of 4 traveled by ATV to Playa Rincon. The ride was absolutely breathtaking. The mountains, the lush greenery, and the small towns where locals were going about their day made this trip unforgettable. Rudy personalized the trip based on what we wanted, frequently asking us if we wanted to stop to take... More

We are a couple and 3 children (12, 10 and 9) and we had a lovely ride from the ranch into the countryside and then down to the beach where we rode in the surf and along the sand. Rudy is very professional but friendly and the children loved the whole experience.

My husband & I had the pleasure of doing a private 4 hour horseback ride with Rudy. I can honesty say that I have never ridden such a well trained horse, other than my own. Usually when you go on riding tours, the horses are not the best behaved due to tourists hauling on them all of the time, but... More
