Golfo Vista is great, went there with a family of 4 and it was everyone's highlight of a 10-day trip to Costa Rica. By far the best zipline I've ever done, great course, scenery, and 25 lines! With the early start, rainy season was no problem. Swimming in a small pool between two rushing waterfalls is an adventure to be remembered. The guides are very experienced and friendly and add to the fun.
The horseback ride was great, too. Mostly up a dirt 4WD road but no cars encountered by us. The horses ride in a pack, which is a different experience from the usual trail ride where they're head to butt. It's nice for socializing with other travelers. We got to trot quite a few times and a few horses were even up to a canter once. The horses know where the climbs, flats, and downs are and pretty much go at their own comfortable pace.
The horses are well cared for and well-fed. They look like the typical horse we saw in Costa Rica, a little skinnier than the US steed but so are the cows, goats, people, roads, and just about everything else down there. They're only ridden once a day, there's a strict weight limit, and they stay below 1000m elevation. Compared to some horses I've ridden in Colorado who are fed like crazy and ridden twice or more a day at 3000m I would say they have it off pretty well.
Our room was very spacious, clean, and comfortable. The hotel, restaurant, and horseback 4.5 stars, the zipline 5 stars. The overnight package deal with 3 meals is an incredible value.
