“Great Service & truly magical experience!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Truly worth riding up the rather boring Panamericain Highway just for the Barbecue here.
Being a non meat eater I ordered fish & was pleased when I saw that they had added a selection of veg without prompting! Unfortunately the rest of the gang tucked in too! It was an almost perfect blue sky that turned into a terrific Sunset. Although most of our group stuck to their motors for riding I managed to convince Mr P and we left our trusted beast & saddled up. Fab & although a little sore I will return for a Longer TIME VERY SOON!

“Always a super good time..!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We have been to Black Stallion a few times & its always a good time.This time we were amazed by the sunset views from the top of the mountains. We rode as a group of 8. It takes around
40 mins to get to the top, a relaxed ride on mellow horses with a very good cowboy called Flako.
The 360 % views are beyond spectacular, so take the camera. When we returned to the Cafe they had icy cold beers & BBQ all ready for us. The chef Carlos did a fantastic job..he is a master & the BBQ buffet was excellent....thx!!

“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.
