“LOVED THIS TRAIL RIDE, AND WAS ONE OF THE FIRST TO TRY THE CANOPY ZIP”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Just 5 minutes from the cruisy beach scene of Tamarindo is the super cool Black Stallion Hills ranch. Owner and maitre D Alex has a great set up. Horse ride into the magical Hills, ranch style barbecue lunch. And now the biggest canopy zip line system in CA (i think?). I was one of the first to try it and Wow, it rocks. And i hear they are soon to add Folkloric nights with traditional dancing and music as well.

“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!!
