Amazing experience! I have been riding horses for 10 years and have always wanted to ride them on the beach. The horses were well matched to our riding ability and we were able to actually control them instead of the horses following the guide blindly. Would definitely recommend to both experienced riders and beginners!

I have always, always wanted to ride on a beach. I'm an experienced rider, but I've never had / never made this opportunity happen. During our honeymoon to CR - it was a must! But I had to find the perfect place. Being a long-time horse person as well as a veterinarian, I needed to make sure to find a... More

My boyfriend and I chose to do a private special tour. Diego worked with us for months over email planning our perfect trip and ride. We chose to ride on the beach, swim/ride bareback with the horses, and have lunch! It was the best excursion and leg of our trip. Each of us was given a horse that matched our... More

Diego takes such good care of his horses and they are incredibly well trained! I loved the aspect of riding the horse independently - it was so authentic! Although it was our first time, we were confident with the horses and got a chance to gallop. The sunset and the beach itself is something out of a fairy-tale. Diego was... More

Amazing ride! The gentleman who owns the horses is very friendly and takes great pictures and videos. Beautiful beach ride, romantic but still family friendly. Great fun for beginners and advanced riders. Horses are gentle and responsive. Unforgettable experience!! Recommend to any and all.

Diego was fantastic! None of us (family of 5) had ridden before. Diego was patient and kind and we had the BEST time with him riding on the beach - really beautiful. The horses were clearly really well trained and well cared for. This is a must do - Diego is the coolest cowboy we've ever met!

This experience was one of the best i ever had! Diego and his horses were amazing. He picked the right kind of horse for each of us, according to our riding experience. The horses were well trained and calm. The nature was beautiful and the whole tour on the beach breathtaking! We recommend it to every horse/nature lover. Just one... More

My husband and I have quite some riding experience, but so far haven't any possibility to ride on the beach and in the water, since it's forbidden on most of beaches in Europe. With Diego's Riding Adventure our dreams have finally came true. It was exciting to have long canters on the edge of the ocean in sunset. The horses,... More

This tour truly exceeded my expectations. I was a little nervous as this was only my second time on a horse but Diego, the owner, and Victoria, our guide, easily made me feel very comfortable on the horse. Riding on the beach during the sunset was incredible! The beach was beautiful and it was so much fun trotting through the... More

Diego really makes an effort to make you have the best experience. I had the forest/beach tour and it was absolutely the best. The forest was pretty rough at some point but the horses are very well trained, strong and sweet and they really seemed to enjoy it as well. The best part for me was cantering on the beach... More
