“Highly recommended horse-back riding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Eight of us spent Christmas week at Punta Uva (2013). One of our highlights of our stay was horseback riding with Caribe Horse Riding Club. The trip was booked online without realizing the club ranch was near the houses we rented. The trip started with an included shuttle service (taxi). Since the owner was taking time off for her newborn baby, Sandra (manager, a video producer from Holland) and Kristen (volunteer from US.) took 5 of us for a long ride in the woods and on the beach. Both of them were very nice and knowledgeable, especially Sandra. Some of us were experienced riders, others were beginners. We all truly enjoyed this ride. I personally have had horseback riding in the canyons/deserts/mountains and on the beach/island before. This one has to be one of the best. I highly recommend this trip.
In addition, like many places in Punta Uva, the club has no address. If you Google map search "Caribe Horse Riding Club, Costa Rica" or use GPS Coordinates: 9.632971, -82.680590, you'll find the location. "El Refugio Restaurant" mentioned in the direction to the club is called El Refugio Grill. It offers very nice Argentinian food for dinner only. But it's on the fancy and expensive side (C130,000/8 people) based on local standard.
In addition, since you are in the area, there is an excellent snorkeling site nearby (GPS coordinates: 9.643077, -82.687999‎) with a 5 feet underwater coral (on the edge of shallow side of reef line) and reefs with many colorful fish. A hike up to Punta Uva (9.640861, -82.693085) is also nice.

“Fun ride!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We enjoyed riding on the beach and through the jungle. The guides were very nice and knowledgable. The horses were well cared for and very calm. I highly recommend this stable if you're interested in a ride in the area.

Over the end of November, we were fortunate enough to take a wonderful ride with Sandra and her company. Despite the rain, Sandra took excellent care of us, the tour was wonderful and we enjoyed ourselves very much. Would recommend them without hesitation and will be return customers.

I had a very wonderfull experience with Caribe Horse Riding. Nice and healthy horses, and very nice tour guide from Holland. I really love that they prefer to ride the horses with bidless briddles.
