Guanacaste Costa Rica

"Come to ride, relax and experience our very special corner of Paradise.  We are not just a 'nose to tail' ride, but a ranch that caters to real riders who care about the quality, care and treatment of horses.  Our goal is to provide an unforgettable cultural and equestrian experience to our clients and friends."  -  Kay and Esteban, owners


Join us for an exceptional riding getaway at a intimate horse ranch located minutes from the famous white sand beaches of Guanacaste. Known for their beautiful, well cared for and expertly trained Criollo horses, Kay and Esteban will personally treat you to a sincere home -style hospitality and excellent  riding.  They have developed their home into one of the finest horse ranches in the area, breeding and training their own special stock -  including a vivid line of painted Pasos and Criollos! Located in an oasis of large Guanacaste trees and surrounded by green pastures, you will be just minutes from some of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. The ranch is also centrally located to take advantage of Guanacaste’s famous tourists attractions and is a haven for wildlife, especially howler monkeys and tropical birds.  After your daily riding ventures, take a refreshing dip in the casita -side splash pool, lounge in a restful hammock in the shade with a good book, or take a bird walk on the surrounding trails.  Kay will take you to visit and play in the local seasonal fiestas and truly involve you in a taste the authentic culture with her friends and the locals.  Visit the nearby national park and its resident volcano, ride along the pretty beaches and experience the traditional sabanero cowboy culture of Guanacaste! This trip can be designed to please both avid riders and their non rider friends... Kay and Esteban are more than happy to try and work with your vision of the perfect horseback vacation and deliver it in a big way!


It is possible to arrange an extra 3-day extension trip to the Volcano of Arenal - spending 2 nights visiting and exploring the popular magnificent volcano destination including sightseeing, horseback explorations and thermal spa relaxation.  Also, additional beach extensions can be added on if you wish to partake in local water sports for a few days!
