“wow what a tropical ranch.......!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

I grew up in ranch country & know beautiful ranch land when I see it. Black stallions a classic ranch in paradise - its huge with rolling mountains & open valleys....totally beautiful. We had an epic afternoon, we rode in the creeks under huge trees & howled at monkeys who howled straight back at us as if we had a conversation going. it was a really a cool experience.

After the ride we relaxed at the cafe & the guys served us icy beers & then started a BBQ diner that was delicious & rocked...! I would highly recommend this to my friends & family.

“Cowboy birthday party for Angelo such a blast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Black Stallion Hills just hosted a fabulous birthday party for a huge group of local kids, with horses, fabulous food, piñata, play activities and more. It is a wonderful setting for any kind of party, occasion, celebration or wedding. I have spent many incredible evenings in this magical place and riding the beautiful local Criollo horses with authentic Guanacaste saddles is like a dream. The trails are endless with coastal vistas, pristine forest views, sights, smells and open spaces abound. If you are in the Tamarindo area this is a must do place to visit especially for families! The Cantina and western dining hall is always full of laughter and good times. Love love love this place! Alex, the owner, is a character not to be missed both at the ranch and on his surf board in Playa Avellanas.
