Took my wife on our honeymoon to Lapa Rios and booked a horseback ride with Rancho Tropical through the resort. Guide took us through the rainforest, on the beach, and pointed out all the wildlife and trees along the way. Beautiful experience

My husband and I spent a magical 8 days on the Osa peninsula and booked a horseback riding tour through the jungle to a stunning waterfall. It was wonderful to experience the jungle on horseback as it gave you a completely different vantage point to all its sights and sounds. The waterfall was located in a beautiful grotto and we...

My girlfriend and I spent 4 days on the Osa and chose to book two tours with Rancho Tropical. The first was horseback riding: we rode by the beach, crossed streams, went up and down trails to finally end up at a waterfall. Our guide, Cualco, was amazing and treating us to a once in a lifetime experience which we... More

I did this tour with Fillo from Blue Osa and he really knows a lot about the wildlife in the area. Horse-back riding with horses from Rancho Tropical was so much fun. The horses were cute and kept eating leaves on the way, so funny! We rode through fields and forest first to the top of a mountain to get... More

A fantastic ride with our guide Gabriel and my 10 year daughter and I. We went up to the waterfall and then down to the beach, seeing lots of wildlife and plants and beautiful scenery. Gabriel was a wonderful guide, very patient and full of knowledge. The horses were very steady and safe as well. Definitely a highlight of a... More

Hi folks!!!! I travelled in many countries so far in my life. Indeed I´m a big fan of fishing and wildlife excursions and that´s the reason why I went to Costa Rica. While staying in Banana Bay Marina in Golfito for a fishing trip, I have heard about Rancho Tropical in the Osa Peninsula, near Puerto Jiminez. I found there... More

What an amazing day at the ranch! Breathtaking horsebackride! The views are stunning from the top of the mountain! The swimming in the fall was inevitably my best moment. The adventure has allowed us to discover the beauty of Costa Rica on its most natural aspect. 5/5 +++

This horseback riding adventure was incredible! Our touristic guide knew everything about birds, wild animals and tropical vegetation. We have seen tons of lapas and even a family of monkeys on our way going up the mountain. The view of the Pacific Ocean from the top of the mountain is just amazing. My favorite part of the tour was when... More
