I've always wanted to ride whilst on holiday but being experienced with horses and who's horses live better than I do I worry about their welfare. Whilst here on our honeymoon I really didn't want to miss out, I researched for some time and found Diego and his herd! If you are an animal lover and worry about the horses... More

Diego was incredible! The horses are healthy and beautiful. They are well trained too! Our small group truly enjoyed the extra attention he gave to two in our group that are true horse lovers. He gave them extra time and helped them canter and run along the beach. My daughter is only 8 but she thought this was the BEST... More

We had a great ride with Diego on the beach. Easy to arrange via their web site & was very accommodating when it started to rain just before our ride. He put us in a small group the next morning & provided the transfers from our hotel in Manuel Antonio. Horses were well cared for & seemed to love the... More

This experience was on our bucket list . Me (early 50s, inexperienced) and my daughter, 12, an experienced rider. looking for an authentic experience, not... More

We had 11 in our group ages 10 and up. Diego and his staff were very knowledgeable. DIego knew how to calm any beginners fears of riding while making sure everyone was safe. We chose the sunset tour and it was beautiful. The horses were also very well taken care of. The tour began near the Pelican Restaurant so it... More

I wanted to try horseback riding with the family this year but I wasn't sure they were old enough. Diego was excellent! My 7 yr old had her own horse which diego guided, while my 4 yr old rode with me. We had a wonderful late afternoon (that turned into sunset!) ride along the beach. My emails were promptly answered... More

This was a highlight for my wife and I during our stay in Costa Rica. We wanted to ride some horses that were healthy, and in a location where we could run them. The Riding Adventure was the ticket! Our guide Diego told us we could run them at a canter or gallop along the beach, and he even took... More

Diego cared about his horses- and was loath to put a very big man on one of them- this endeared him to me and my companions..We ride well and he let us be on our own while he shepherd some novices in a visiting family., It was a gorgeous evening and the horses were game and well mannered. Unfortunately I... More

By chance we were able to book a last minute early morning ride for my horse-crazy daughter's 15th birthday. The setting was beautiful along the beach with the early morning sun and the crashing waves. Diego was really nice to dedicate so much attention to her, coaching her and giving her some great tips on riding. Best of all he... More

Thank you, Diego, for a wonderful family beach ride! It was the first time for both my son and husband, and thanks to you and your friendly horses, both admitted they would love to ride again!
