We went on about a 1 1/2 hour ride and our guide Marco was great. Very friendly and knowledgeable and spoke English well. (Our Spanish pretty much sucks!). Horses weren't the boring trail-trained horses--they had some personality and spunk to them, but not so much that a beginner couldn't control them. Alex, the host, picked us up from Tamarindo and...

Private Dinner at Black Stallion is simply awesome. You have to book on line. Don't call. Don't just show up. The spread is prepped and cooked just for you. It's amazing. We did this on our last night in C.R. Getting there is a blast, it's all part of the adventure. The roads up to the ranch are dirt, unlit,... More

Had a wicked time with Alex and his crew at Black Stallion. Some incredible viewpoints and zipping through the trees gets the juices flowing. Will have to book the bbq next time as the pictures looked prime. Cheers Matt and Richelle

This was the first time our boys have ridden horses and it was a great experience. Alex is so friendly and welcoming and creates a laid back atmosphere. Our guides were patient and helpful as we toured through the jungle and the horses were responsive and well behaved. Highly recommended, thank you Alex and team!!

This was our second visit to Tamarindo Beach and while we wanted to go zip lining we didn't want to book the full day excursion and this was the perfect two hour excursion just outside of town.

It is not just about the canopy tour. My family and I had a great time with Alex, Horacio and Marco. They are great people, and they will make everything to make you feel comfortable. This was definitely one of the best tours that we did in Costa Rica. Just go!! Pura vida!!

The 360 degree view from the top of the mountain is incredible. Staff is devoted to safety, but they are also a lot of fun. This was the first time zip lining for me. Being above the jungle canopy, and then riding down right into the jungle was amazing. The howling monkeys in the background only added to the experience.... More

Thank you very much for the great review we appreciate.Yes our canopy zipline is more like an eco adventure rather than a short zipline like in Maui. Our canopy has 10 lines 9 platforms, each one unique & super fun. You zip over 33 acres of pristine jungle & you may well fly past our howler monkeys eating berries or... More
