My dad and I had the most wonderful time at Rancho Tipico Don Juan! The communication with Randall was superb. Neither my father or I had been horseback riding before, so I was a little nervous at first. Randall was so kind, and greatly helped to ease any worry I had. The ranch, an incredible piece of property that his... More

What a wonderful experience! This was a last minute decision but so glad we decided to do it. Randal, our guide, was very attentive and knowledgeable. He knew the history of the land, taught us about the wildlife, and overall, a great host. Best excursion in Costa Rica! Horses were well behaved and we stopped and took a dip in... More

What a truly marvelous way to see this beautiful ranch, experience the rain forest, learn about trees, frogs, and interact with a very knowledgeable young man. I am still basking in the glow of this experience. The ride to the ranch was also very special.

Very well organised. You get picked up at your hotel and you're getting fruits and water before you start the riding. It's a family business which makes it more likeable than the big tour operators. Randall and his father are very friendly and answer you all the questions you might have about the horses, the plants, the region,... Helmets are... More

My daughters and I wanted a fun, easy horseback riding experience through the rainforest. What we got was a truly magical experience with professional, kind, warm hearted people that we were so very lucky to have met! The horses are very well behaved (and very well loved, which is equally nice to see!). We enjoyed the stunning scenery on this... More

Before we ended the tour... More

This was a wonderful experience to see a beautiful ranch mixed with a family who loves to share their home. You will not have many experiences like this in Costa Rica!!!... More

My husband and I went on this tour at Rancho Tipico Don Juan on our honeymoon and could not have had more fun! Randall was an amazing tour guide and so knowledgable! It ended up just being my husband and I on the tour and it was so romantic and just what we were looking for. The horses were also... More
