Farm Based Riding Vacations

Farm based riding vacations allow you to ride as much or as little as you like. Our nine different trail rides range in length and in dificulty. You can schedule your rides to fit your mood of the day.

Farm based riding vacations are perfect for groups composed of riders of varying levels. You can go on an easy ride in the morning with the whole group and the advanced riders can either continue on or take another more challenging ride in the afternoon while the rest of the group enjoys the farm or the nearby waterfall.

Traveling with children who ride? That’s great! We have the perfect ponies for the little ones so they can enjoy the riding too.

Don’t feel like riding one day? or are you traveling with a non rider? Don’t worry. There are lots of other attractions in the area and a short walk away there is a waterfall and swimming hole to enjoy.

Traveling with children too young to ride? We can provide an experienced baby sitter while you are on your ride. Your children will love our farm animals; goats, chickens, ducks, geese and rabbits as well as dogs and cats.

During your stay you will wake up to the sound of tropical birs while you stay in  our Rustic Farm House or in our Dream Catcher Tree House.

Multi-day Treks to the Beach

This is a riding vacation different from all the rest.

It is a journey for the experienced rider who wants to partner with their horse as they travel, day by day,  for  5-7 days, into the heart of rural Costa Rica. On this trip you will experience Costa Rica’s natural beauty and the life of the Ticos up close and in a way that most tourists never get to see.  

We have three different treks to choose from. 

With all the three of these treks,  each day is different from the last as you travel through a variety of ecosystems, from the mountains down to the beach.

  • On the Rainforest Trek you visit working farms, National Parks and a Canopy Zip Line.
  • On the Jungle River Trek, you experience true wilderness areas as you follow the Rio Tulin from its headwaters all the way to the ocean.
  • On the Nicoya Eco Beach Trek you will  see monkeys, ride three of the days on beaches, and sleep in the comfort of 3*-5* hotels.

 Mountains and Beach Riding Vacations

These riding vacations offer you the best of both worlds. Experience the rugged mountains of Puriscal County, the tropical beauty of the Rain Forest, and choose between the sunny, pristine beaches of either the Carribean or Pacific coasts.

Similar to our multi-day treks but without the long days in the saddle we transport you from place to place in a private vehicle so you get to enjoy it all! Perfect for riders of all levels.
