I can't say enough good things about this place! The owner is very friendly and kind. Horseback riding was relaxing with beautiful views. We saw howler monkeys close up. My girls loved the zip line. The food was delicious. Would gladly return and recommend this place to anybody interested in writing or zip lining.

My husband and I zip lined for the very first time. I was super nervous, but our tour guides did an excellent job preparing us and after the first rope it went from super scary to super fun. I highly recommend it.

10 of us visited for a zip line adventure. Alec picked us at Sunrise Condos. It is about a 15 minute ride to Black Stallion Hills. Once we arrived, we got our gear on then it was up to the top of the mountain. Once we arrived at the top, the guides gave us instructions on how to zip line... More

What a thrill!!!! Booked a zipline and BBQ dinner thru Black stallion website...it didn't disappoint. Alex the owner was professional and attentive, a genuine"nice" fellow. I've enjoyed several outing around tamarindo, and this was the most pleasant. Great value and experience. Thank you, and we shall see you again. Cheers

I have been to Tamarindo many times and consider it my back yard, even though I live in Texas. I love trying new things and when I saw Black Stallion Surf Cafe get such rave reviews on tripadvisor, I knew that I had to give it a shot. I will say that I was a little unsure what to expect,... More

My Children and I were staying locally at a nearby home and swung by last minute, with no reservations and Alex the owner was super welcoming! He scheduled us in for some horseback riding with one of his guides at a really reasonable price. The tour guide was beyond informative and helpful! We had 3 small children ages 4, 6,... More
