What people are saying about Puntarenas Province

This was a relaxing and enjoyable excursion. Riding peacefully through the lush landscape was nice, then we got to stop at a waterfall and play in the water for a bit before we rode back. Horses are well trained so good for first time riders. Guide was very nice but I can’t remember the name. He was the one for 4/26 at 8 am.

La playa es hermosísima. Definitivamente una experiencia que vale mucho la pena si quieres estar en contacto con la naturaleza y disfrutar de una deliciosa comida con la mejor vista de todas.

Fernando was a very good guide. He explained things all along the road about Costa Rica. We saw multiple of animals in their natural environment. The food was great also.

It has been a very nice experience, everything went according to plan and we had a great time.

Long but great day out. Our guide Fernando was excellent.
