I didn't pay them enough. There was a moment on the Beach. Desolate. No houses. No boats. Far from any crowds. Just us on the horses. For as far as the eye can see. The wind is blowing. I feel the salty sea spray hitting me in the face as it blows inland. And this small flock of 6 scarlet Macaws fly directly overhead. I took a deep breath and savored the moment. It was everything, and much more, as promised in the advertising. Face it, we all want to feel like we get our monies worth, out of any experience. And I'm no different. Diego exceeded that. Right down to the cold Imperial after the ride. I cannot recommend this adventure enough. His brother and he forgiver me but I have forgotten the nice gentleman's name, and this is a family ran business even cater to transportation needs for those of us, like myself, who don't care to drive while on Vacation. They are even quite adept at managing photos or videos while riding. Now quit reading and book them!
Downside: The trip across the Highway can be a bit exhilarating. I would have preferred to be mount up on the other side of that busy road. But, Diego did get us all across very safely.
Wonderful experience, Diego was very knowledgeable. Well trained horses for those with (20yrs)or without experience (0experience). Great meal at the end of a great ride in the forest and on the beach. Exceeded all expectations for a great price! Wish there was more space to write more great things!
Being from Australia, we chose this tour initially for the opportunity to ride along a Costa Rican beach and take in the unique scenery. What we got was so much more. Of course there was the beautiful surroundings (the beach is spectacular and near deserted) and the horses were well cared for. But we had three kids in tow, aged 14, 8 and 5 and what really made this tour exceptional was Diego. Despite the fact that none of us were experienced riders, Diego was patient, flexible and always made us feel at ease. He took the time to develop a rapport with my girls and help them learn how to ride, which turned the day into something truly memorable for both them and us. The lunch at the end was a typical Costa Rican lunch in gorgeous surroundings overlooking the beach and was the icing on the cake. We got a lot of fantastic photos and footage during the ride, which are made even better by the very special memories attached to them. Would highly recommend this tour to anybody.
Diego was amazing!! The horses were great! I'm an experienced rider and I brought along 3 inexperienced riders and we all were matched with horses that were a good fit for us and we all were very satisfied with the ride. We got a good lesson in the beginning to help the newbies feel comfortable -- and we were all offered safety lessons and helmets. And then on the ride we were allowed to trot if we desired, and even canter! The view was spectacular. The beach was clean, quiet and wide, so plenty of room for all of us to have space. Then we ended at lunch that was DELICIOUS! I've been on a lot of horseback riding tours and this was THE BEST!! Relaxed, safe, and FUN! Muchas gracias Diego!!
My wife and I did this activity during our honeymoon. Diego was a fantastic guide and we learned so much from him. Everything about this tour was perfect and we even have great pictures and videos taken by Diego! Lunch was great and pickup was very convenient. We would do this again in a heartbeat!
We had the private tour scheduled for Thursday. Diego emailed to change the tour to Friday because of rain. We understood the change because of the weather, but we did not receive the tour my wife and I booked for our honeymoon. Instead we were in a small group of 6. The group was fun, however, that is not what we paid for. We could have saved a lot more money by just booking a group tour with the same trip.
