This has to be the best kept ranch in the whole area. The horses and very well looked after. Sandra and her team are amazing. We spent a couple of hours, just me, my friend and our guide exploring the hillside trails as the sun was setting. Highly recommended.

We booked not one but TWO tours with Sandra. One on the beach with a large group (9) and a mountain ride with 4, myself and 3 girls. We had an amazing time on both rides. The horses were terrific and the guides great. The only criticism would be on the mountain tour I wish more could have been shared... More

This was far far better than most group trail rides. We had a group of 9, with mixed skill levels - some expert riders, some had never been on a horse before. Sandra and her staff put the right horse with the right rider, and off we went. Those who were able to do so had plenty of chances to... More

We had a large group ranging from very experienced riders to me, the beginner and we all had a blast. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a unique way to enjoy the beauty of Costa Rica. Would definitely... More

I planned to do one trip with Sandra and Rudi, but ended up booking two horseback riding and a quad tour with them. Sandra is a great tour guide, very friendly and competent. I was an absolute beginner, but she taught me lot about riding. Actually, horseback riding was never my cup of tea, but after my trips with the... More

It was marvellous to see how easy it is to get a really personal service. My wife started riding again after quite a lot of years, but the careful guidance and encouragement provided by Sandra and Rudy made it quite easy for her - it was difficult to get her off the horse again ;-)) She also enjoyed the opportunity...

My boyfriend and I had wanted to take horseback riding lessons for a long time and we finally did it. I'm so glad we chose Sandra at Sunrise Ranch!! I didn't have any experience and Sandra's friendly manner and knowledge about horses set me at ease right away. Her relaxing teaching style is encouraging and incredibly helpful. I was able... More
