I went with a large group of friends, 11 of us on this activity. It has been a few days and we still can't stop talking about it. Riding beautifully trained horses on the beach in the surf at sunset was a dream come true. The weather was perfect along with everything else. Diego was very attentive to everyone and... More

Absolutely wonderful. They made things so simple- for an extra $10pp they picked us up at our hotel almost an hour away and arranged for transportation back. Our guide spoke English and you can tell he really loves his job as well as teaching others about the horses. We were a small group of 3 (no extra fee for the... More

This is an very unusual opportunity for several reasons. 1) The ride is primarily on the beach and in the surf. 2) The horses are normally working horses used on a cattle farm. This means the horses are well trained and responsive to very direction. Not the usual trail horses that only walk on a trail and follow no instruction.... More

This is a must do. We went as a family and we all enjoyed it. Nothing beats a walk along the beach on a horse.

We LOVED this tour. One of the best rides i have ever been on. We rode on the beach practically alone, and the horses walked in the surf like they do it every day! The horses are very well trained and well taken care of, and Diego is obviously a professional. He made sure my boys ages 9 and 11... More

Thanks for this great family. the rime was memorable ! we are the beach horseback tour near Manuel Antonio National Park. 40 minutes drive is an average time to outdoor activities in the Manuel Antonio Quepos Area, and we take you to Esterillos Este beach, a very unpopulated open sandy beach, that gives us the magic of riding lonely and...

We did a two hour afternoon ride on the beach. They are very good with children and those that have not been on a horse before or for a very long time.

My family and I rode horses with Diego on the beach. We had so much FUN! My girls loved it! As a family we have very little horseback riding experience. Diego did such a fantastic job taking care of my 7 year old. He made sure she was safe the entire time. He even rode on the same horse as... More

Our girls, ages 12 and 14, have been riding since they were young and ride many times a week, so at first we were resistant to horseback riding on vacation. We are so glad that we changed our minds! Diego did a private tour for our family (while the girls are experienced riders, we are not) and this was definitely... More
