A horseback ride along a remote Costa Rican beach is poised to become a highlight of any tropical vacation.

This small-group tour is limited to eight people or fewer for a more intimate adventure.
What to Expect

Rancho Monterey is within a driving distance from any town like Hermosa, Quepos, Manuel Antonio, Dominical, Jaco, Herradura, Punta Leona, and Puntarenas.

Once you choose the morning or afternoon tour, easy to follow driving directions will be sent, all on the main road. After arrival at Monterey Ranch (40 minutes from Manuel Antonio National Park or 20 minutes from the town of Jaco) meet Diego, your English-speaking authentic Costa Rican outfitter. Diego, who has devoted his life to horses, assesses your experience and needs before pairing you with the perfect horse. After receiving brief instructions from Diego, embark on your 2-hour riding adventure using western tack.

Depending on rider skill level and desires, the horses will walk, trot or gallop along the black and white sand of Esterillo Beach. The tour can be customized and be combined with a forest trail to create a 2-hour ride that leaves from Monterey Ranch and travels through a 5,000-acre nature preserve before arriving on Esterillo Beach. Tours are open to riders of all levels of experience and are organized into small groups in order to provide personal attention. Not recommended for kids under 12 years old. Limit weight 250 pounds.

Experience not necessary. Advice please if you are an experienced rider to customize the tour. Lunch is typical Costa Rican meal including chicken or fish filet and vegetables.

Great ride

We had a fantastic family ride with Diego! I particularly want to reply to those who saw some sort of mistreatment of horses. I am certainly not a veterinarian, but saw no evidence of abuse, verbal or physical. The horses all seemed healthy and Diego...More

Amazing Beach Ride!

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 (in the jungle), but it was much...More
