I have always wanted to ride a horse on a beach and today we were able to make that happen thanks to Diego. Diego and his brother Gustavo were really friendly and made us feel at ease with the horses. We had a secluded beach to ourselves and we got to trek around with the horses for 2 hours and enjoy a delicious lunch at the end. Diego and Gustavo also shared their stories and a little bit of Costa Rican history. It was an amazing time and we highly recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for a customized and personalized horse riding experience. Pura Vida! :)

Diego is a fantastic guide and horseman. My wife's wish has always been to ride a horse in the beach and Diego made her wish come true. Starting with well trained horses, excellent instruction in riding and great patience Diego made the ride an unforgettable experience. He is a great English speaker and is very personable. We all had a great conversation about our families and the angels in our lives. What a relaxing morning, beautiful beach and great lunch at the pelicano hotel to finish the tour. Can not recommend Diego high enough for his love of his animals and care for his customers. No better place for a great tour.

I have always wanted to ride horses on the beach and this was as magical as I wanted it to be. The horses were responsive and lively and beautiful. Just the right length of time for a ride and reasonable in price. Beautiful black sand with the waves rolling in provided the finishing touches to paint my complete memory.

Besides the beauty of the ride (which was MAGNIFICENT), what I enjoyed the most was the opportunity to actually ride a horse. They do not constrain you to going single file and slow but you are allowed the freedom to trot and gallop lightly. For those in my group who did not know how to ride - they were taught. The horses are on a higher level than most horseback riding companies - they are extremely well trained and respond quickly to all of your instructions and will not move on their own.
My mother was terrified to ride and Diego (the host) accommodated her with a smile and patience as well as easy to understand instructions.

If you plan on going horseback riding in Cost Rica - this is definitely the place to choose.

Diego, Diego. Diego, which means flexible, reliable and professional. His horses are just as reliable. These well taken horses actually enjoy taking you for a run in the surf. My family has been on a number of riding adventures and you can tell when the horse isnt into it due to over use and poor training. Diegos horses are his family and he knows them intamitely so you can throughly trust your family to be in safe hands during the ride. Diegos knowledge of the flora and fauna are vast and due to his impeccable English he can share beyond simple wording. If there's one thing I'd recommend while in the Estirillos area it would be taking a Riding Adventure with Diego.
