We signed up for the half-day excursion and it was fantastic. They have horses for every level of rider and the people are just great! Be warned though, the horses (and the guides) love to splash through the streams so dress for adventure. Spare bananas for the horses are always appreciated.

Once again I had the pleasure of visiting Joyce and the staff at Rancho Lorilar. During my 2 weeks stay in Playa Dorada I went up to the ranch 5-6 times. Now and then riding with a group- now and then alone with the guide Rafael. Even if I have been there many times I never get tired of the... More
