We visited the Rancho Playa at December 2019. First we had a group expedition, which was such a nice ride that we wanted to also have a private tour for us only. The ranch and the horses are really well taken care of, Nicole (the owner) helps really well the riders with less experience as well and the location for the tour is really nice (both jungle and beach are part of the ride). Highly recommended.

What a lifetime experience.
We had a beautiful ride along the beach on very calm horses. All our guides AND Nicole were knowledgeable and super helpful.
Most importantly, the horses are well looked after and Nicole makes sure each rider has a horse which matches their skills.

Thanks soooooo much, I would always come back again.

Great tours. The tour guide and owner are both extremely friendly and helpful. We had a beautiful ride through the forest and onto the beach. I would strongly recommend booking a visit.

My daughter rode twice with the lovely owners, Nicole and Sophie. The horses are clearly well cared for and the route on the trek takes in rain forest, beach, wading through water and is generally a thrill. Nothing was too much trouble and they even rang for someone to fix our punctured tyre. We have had a blast in LT and this was the icing on the cake for our daughter.

Great excursion that we did on our last day of holiday in Las Terranas. Sophie and Nicole welcomed us with smile and reassurance and gave us horses adapted to our ability and age (party of 2 adults + 1 x 17 year old + 1 x 10 year old). Mojito and Apache (2 of our horses) were adorable. Setting of Coson beach is magnificent. Good value for money. Only regret is that we did not do it at beginning of trip so we could have done it twice ! MERCI to the girls @ Rancho Playa.

Rancho Playa makes the horse back riding excursions a must do if you are in Las Terrenas. Everything was perfect from the guides to the beach walk. Would definitely recommend this activity for all types of riders and age groups

Great trip! Rode horses with wife and two teenage children and another family of 5. We each had a guide walk (and gallop) beside us. Our lead guide was bilingual and very sweet. Safety was a main concern with her and went at our speed. Horses were very well behaved and healthy. The beaches we rode on were so beautiful and peaceful.
Would highly recommend.
