Our ride through the hills and beach was perfect. Diego was awesome! Horse are well trained and well kept. It was absolutely the best thing we did. Cross this great experience off our bucket list. Thank you Diego!

“Best horse ride experience between Jaco and Manuel Antonio”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We did our research while in Costa Rica and could not find anything exciting or well reviewed around Manuel Antonio and decided to cast our net wider. In less than an hour you'll reach Diego's place and the combination of healthy horses, cow herding (if you like), great jungle and wild life plus a very large and deserted beach ride at Sunset is the best closing act we have seen.

Diego is gracious, patient and you'll see why most if not all reviews for his service are so highly rated.

“Riding on the beach at sunset near Jaco Costa Rica”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

We had a terrific afternoon with Diego culminating in a ride on the beach at sunset and an exhibition of Diego riding his horse bareback and bridleless. His horses were well-trained, and he took a lot of care matching each rider to each horse to make sure everyone was safe. We showed up with a group of mostly inexperienced riders, and his care and expertise made it truly a memorable activity for us all.

“Horseback riding in Jaco”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

What can I say? Riding up serene hills and pastural roads, catching a sunset while strolling along the Pacific Ocean, and a great guide who I swear could start a TV Show called "The Horse Whisperer". If you are in Jaco, Costa Rica and have the afternoon free you have to check this place out. Less than a 20 minute ride from downtown Jaco is this gem. I had never been on a horse before, but those in my group were experienced rider. Diego made the experience just right for all of us.

“Great ride"”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Super guide and well trained horses. This is a very nice tour for the beginner to the experienced rider. Diego (our guide) was very knowledgable of the area and added wonderful stories to our ride. He made it clear the ride would be tailored to our wishes...and he delivered! ¡Muchas gracias!
