Great fun on horseback!
We had a great time riding horses at Rancho Los Cacaos. The ride was really fun, up through the green hills with three guides. We were first time riders and the horses were tame. The scenery was very pretty. They do longer rides for experienced riders too. You can really tell they love the horses and other animals here. The price was very affordable and it was not a large commercialized operation. They offered hot and cold beverages and were very friendly. We didn’t book through the tour company, just directly online. Recommend for a fun, authentic experience!
