Trail Rides & Horse Tours
We have several trail riding options on safe and reliable horses.  All rides start with a quick evaluation ride in the ring to make sure you and your horse are compatible, and or some basic instruction for riders with little to no experience.  All rides are guided by qualified and experienced riding instructors.
All rides are private and are set at a pace that is safe for you and your group. 



2 hour playa & vistas tour $60
This 2 hour tour starts at our farm and heads out on the road towards Playa Junquialla.  The back roads turn to wooded paths as we make our way down the coast line.  In Junquialla we will enter the beach and head north.  We will cross several different beaches- big open sandy, volcanic rock, and then deep white sandy beach great for a run!  For the experienced rider or adventure seeker we can run up a hill and stop at the top for a beautiful panoramic view of the coast line and mountains.  We weave thru a grassy meadow and then down an embankment back on to Playa Callejones a quaint fishing beach.  Then we head back inland and finish up back at the farm. 
1 hour jungle tour              $40
This tour starts at our farm and goes  directly into the jungle.  We will go up and down slopping hills and have an opportunity to see lots of flora, fauna, and tropical wildlife.
 All day Southern trek w/ lunch     
$120

Riders should have some riding experience and feel comfortable on a horse.  All day treks are not recommended for people who may be nervous about horses- it's a long day to be uncomfortable.    
Riders must be experienced and able to trot and canter.  Also it is highly recommended that people who do this tour ride on a regular basis- or they will be very tired and sore by the end of the day. 
The southern trek is more reclusive and the beaches are almost always empty except for local fisherman. 
We leave the farm first thing in the morning and go directly to the beach and head south.  For the first hour you will experience several different types of beaches- small beaches with palms hanging over, volcanic rock, and big open beaches which are great for a controlled gallop.  We also have a river crossing and depending on the time of year- you may get to have a little swim.   We ride the beaches all the way to Largatillo- a quaint fishing village.  Here we will stop and have a wonderful lunch and let the horses have a rest.  Afterwords we ride back up to the river crossing and enter the estuary.  Inside the estuary we ride thru wetlands and have an opportunity to see lots of water birds.  Also we get to do a run down a shallow river bed.  We wll pop out on the road and go a little ways to enter back into what we call an oxcart road.  This is an old dirt road-that is not always passable for cars.  The ox cart road winds thru the parcellas ( parceled land used for farming).  This part has a beautiful canopy and provides plenty of shade in the afternoon.  This road comes out in the village of Paraiso- we ride thru town and back up the road to the farm. 

All day Northern trek w/ lunch     
$120
This trek is available for riders with less experience or saddle time.  That said you should be comfortable around horses and not nervous.  We start at the farm and ride  to the beach directly- then head north towards Playa Negra- world famous for surfing.   At the end of Negra we hop into Rhancho Playa Negra a gated community for very high end and beautiful homes.  WE wind thru the neighborhood and get back onto the beach at a local fishing spot.  When the tide is correct we can ride pretty far out into the water.  We keep going north on the beach until we get to Playa Avellanas a big open beach popular with tourist.  If the tide and riding ability  permits we will cross this and do one more controlled gallop.  After a lunch break we head into the rolling hills that connect Avellans and Playa Negra.  We will see lots of wildlife and enjoy the shade of the trees.

Over Night Trek to Nosara with a stay at the Tree Tops B&B
$876
This tour is for experienced and regular riders only.  approximately 10 hours of riding in 2 days.  
This tour starts out the same as the Southern day trek- but after lunch we continue south- over Playa Marbella- a big open beach and then we weave in and out down the coast until we hit San Juanillo and our destination The Tree Tops B& B.  This is a nice boutique lodge with  just a few rooms.  While we relax and enjoy the sunset the chef prepares a 5 course meal on their tree top balcony.  After a good night sleep- we have a healthy breakfast and then  head inland and up over a beautiful mountain.  WE go down the back side thru the woods and over little streams until we come out onto the road just outside of Nosara.  Here we  take an oxcart road thru the rice fields.  In Nosara  a transport truck will pick up the horses and we ride home in the car.
