  • Our morning ride was fantastic! The horses are well broken and well cared for. I have owned horses my entire life and can say that Diego runs a top notch operation. I have ridden horses in Jaco before...  more »

  • This was the highlight of our Christmas vacation!! I would give Diego and his crew 10 stars. After a minor mix up with the time Diego sent a taxi to our hotel, called me personally in the taxi, and had his brother drive us back after a refreshing drink at the Hotel Pelicano (Thanks Mark from Minnesota). The horses were very well cared for. The sunset was perfection! I would recommend Diego and the Riding Adventure to everyone who visits Costa Rica!!!
  • These horses love Diego and are clearly loyal to him, but are conditioned to allow for some independence so their rider can have their own experience. The saddles are fitted, well padded and are not only beautifully made, but also worn nice n smooth. He handmakes his own halter and bitless bridles. (Smart, effective and humane!) Their feet are trimmed and healthy, their eyes calm and content. Just watch Diego go around his horses, how he tacks them up, how they stand calmly for him. This is a horseman who is in it for his love of horses. If you want a barn with fancy stalls and landscaping and clipped horses, you're expectations of the Costa Rican ranch are way off. We felt very safe with him. Gentle guidance with a sparkle of kindness in his eye...and clearly the community loves him too, judging by the personable greetings he received from everyone we encountered. The food and view were fantastic (see photo)! The tour is very informal and adapted to the demands of that day so don't expect a choreographed itinerary. Go with the flow and allow yourself to savor the contagious joy of horses with Diego. Thank you, Diego for a dream-come-true ride! (And Happy Birthday, David Bowie! Rest in peace)
  • THIS IS NOT OK. Please do not support this treatment of animals. These are the horses left at the site after I refused to ride on Diego’s beach trip. I can’t believe so many people said this company is reputable. I was fooled. Once they left, I took the saddles off and gave the horses water. They were so thirsty and I found saddles sores on all of them. It is not ok to support this company. My heart is broken for these poor horses.
  • Well-mannered horses - great for all levels - the most beautiful horseback ride on the beach - great for photos and sun - horses are lovely - Diego is a great tour guide, knowledgeable and bilingual! Cannot beat this price! Highly recommended
  • Diego and Gustavo were excellent guides on our horseback ride. True professionals, extremely friendly and informative, ended with a great meal at a small restaurant on the beach. We have eight of us in our family and all of our levels were accommodated: highly recommend!
