Horse Back riding and rappelling down a waterfall.

Very nice guides, horses and a great time. Stopped on the way back for a beer and a leisurely ride on the beach. Guides were very careful and the lines, etc were in good shape.

Great fun for experienced and non experienced riders alike! The horses were well looked after and gentle and our guide was attentive to everyone and pointed out wild life along the way.

Had a fabulous time seeing some wonderful sights and wildlife. Wonderful people at Rancho Tropical to guide you through the forest. Rappelling was an added plus.

Wonderful, well mannered horses (who looked loved, happy and healthy) and an amazing guide (Fillo was good humored, spoke excellent English and had lots of flora / fauna knowledge to share). Was a great addition to my trip!

This was such a wonderful experience - Carlos was our wonderful guide, we got to ride on the beach and rainforest and hike down to a lovely waterfall, then gallop through a meadow - unforgettable!

The trip was well organised; the driver, Antonio, was punctual and friendly, and the guide, Carlos, was informative and interesting and let us take things at our own pace. A suggestion: it might be a good idea to provide some wellingtons for when the streams are high and normal walking boots are inadequate to keep the water out!

My new bride and I had a wonderful time riding with Carlos and rappelling down the waterfall. The horses were very well kept and were so easy to ride and control for both a new and experienced rider. We saw a bunch of wildlife on the ride and beautiful views of the Osa bay. It was both our firsts times... More

Went for an afternoon trek with Minor who was great at pointing out various wildlife. The horse seemed well behaved and easy to control. It was a lovely way of seeing various terrain and we went to a great view point. I enjoyed the two foals accompanying their mothers.
