This was a great ride with a great instructor. Daniel was awesome. He took the time to point out interesting things on the tour, let us stop and take pictures and even offered to take the pictures. And the park was amazing. Will definitely go back for the other adventures.

Having no experience at all with horse-back riding, my daughter of 17 years old and me felt completely safe with Nicholas at Ocean't Park ranch. The horses were very gentle and just followed the horse in front of it. We simply enjoyed the overwhelming beauty of the country-side and jungle during the ride. Crossing a few rivers made the experience even better! We had the best lunch afterwards, we definitely recommend adding that to the tour. Thanks, Nicholas, for this great experience!

A pleasant horse ride along the creek and in the jungle to a beautiful water fall. Daniel kept us informed on plants and other aspects of the ride. Thunder and Rosie were easy to ride and it was a fun couple hours.

Our guides did not speak English. They just showed us to the horses and just left. No safety instruction, no explanation of the surroundings. No animal sightings. Our tour was less than 1.5 hours. There were no refreshments at the end. We’d like our money back.

Hello SarpU. Thanks for your comments. All customer feedback is vital to our constant desire to offer the best service and tours. We regret that you did not receive the personized service that are know to offer. As we said to you when we communicated with you the following day, we had a key guide that was out sick on the day of your tour and on top of that it was one of the busiest days of the year for us. Our goal is always to provide a wonderful experience with our guests. There are rare occasions when we fall short. In your case we apologize for the unsatisfactory experience your received. It was too bad you could not take us up on our very fair offer to host you for free on another occasion. Best luck with the rest of your stay in Costa Rica . Happy and safe travels returning home! Pura Vida

My sister and I came to Jaco, Costa Rica for a birthday trip. From the beginning of our planning, the owner Gregg helped us with not only picking our activities with them but choices of restaurants and sightseeing. Everyone that works there was very kind. Arnold, our guide had a clear love for nature and took the best photos for us. He knew how to use my photo better than I did (lol). At the end he gave us some refreshing tea with honey and slices of pineapple. The driver they provided even let us stop at the JACO sign for photos. No one rushed us with the time, just made sure we had an amazing time, which we did! Shout out to Lomar!

I have found with my time in Costa Rica that so much of the fun is based on the people. This was the case with our horseback riding tour. It was just me, Casey, and a woman from San Francisco on the tour and Lomar was our tour guide. Lomar was the best. He immediately had Casey and I laughing the instant we got out of the van. He is a very funny guy with that laid-back Jamaican dead-pan kind of delivery and he made the trip so much fun. He made us feel like we were long-time friends. He taught us very quickly how to control the horse as Casey and I were both first-timers. My horse, Brownie, was an angel. He was very well behaved and Lomar gave me the confidence and advice so that I even got to let Brownie run for a bit when we went up a hill. Very exhilarating! The rest of the time was just a nice leisurely trot through the jungle. Lomar showed us some very cool plants. I forget the names but one created a red oil that the indigenous people used to use as paint, one was the plant they use to make Bengay(it smells just like it), and one created smoke when you shook it! Another thing that was great was Lomar is an expert with the iphone photos and even made a PERFECT slow-motion video of me and Casey in front of the waterfall. I will say that this was an experience we will never forget!(and I'm pretty sure Lomar and Barbie will never forget Casey!!) Oh and I almost forgot about Lassie who was the cutest dog and was with us the whole way, which was icing on the cake :) My legs will be VERY sore tomorrow but this experience was 10000% worth it!

The horsebacktour was really nice and peacefull. They take really good care of the horses. The property is really big and te tour to the waterfall was nice. We have seen some birds and a frog. The dog walked the whole tour with us to take care after us :). The tour took about 2 hours. The tour costs 65 dollar, a little bit overpriced. The amount of time/value doesn't really compare to the price you pay.

We all had a great time horseback riding to the waterfall. Lamar was super chill and took the time to point out unique trees and birds. We really enjoyed the iced tea and fresh fruit at the end.

Tour was nice well organized and comfortable, well kept huge property and ranch.
Saw some toucans on our way to the falls. The area was dry and not green due to lack of rain fall.
The tour ended with a water and drink break we were offered complimentary fresh cut pineapples and iced tea.
Overall very good, a bit pricey.
