After spending a lot of time reading reviews, I knew that we should definitely go with Pacific Horses. I sent an email and Nicole responded immediately, and she was so helpful answering my questions. I wasn’t sure what day we would want to go so I waited to book our excursion until we arrived. A few minutes later after I booked the day and time, Nicole messaged me and asked if I would like to change the time from 4:00 to 4:30 so that we would be able to ride while the sun was setting. We decided to change the time, and I’m so happy that we did because it was beautiful. Gustavo rode with us, and he was one of the most friendly and personable people we met while on vacation. You can tell he is knowledgeable, loves his job and he goes above and beyond to make sure you have a great time. We stopped a few times, and he was more than happy to take pictures of my husband and I with the sunset in the background. The next day when my husband and I were going to the beach, Gustavo called out our names and came over to talk to us, just to see how our day was going. I know he meets a lot of people every day and for him to remember our names the next day, just shows what a genuine person he is, and makes you feel like you are a part of the Costa Rica family. We just got home from our vacation yesterday and have already decided that we will be going back next year to the same exact place, and we would ride with Pacific Horses again.

This was a 5 star experience. Nicole was great! She was accommodating, communicative, and so friendly during and after the booking process. Leticia took us on our ride and was wonderful! She was so patient and kind and made sure our experience was comfortable and enjoyable. The horses were beautiful and well taken care of. The ride through conchal beach was stunning. My teenage daughter said it was highlight of her trip. We are so happy we chose to ride with Pacific horses and can’t wait to do it again when we return to Costa Rica! Pura Vida!

I rode with them for the whole week I was in Costa Rica every morning! Beautiful horses which are well trained and brave. So much freedom and fun. Definitely one of the best tours I’ve been on here in Costa Rica.

Best horse back riding experience in the Flamingo, Conchal, Brasilito area. We are a family of five ranging from beginner to advanced. They matched the horses and riders excellently. Both guides took us along the beautiful beaches and through the woods. We saw stingrays and fish in the water and Howler monkeys in the trees. Both guides proactively took numerous photos and videos of us along the way. Both guides were knowledgeable about the area. The horses were very well loved and cared for. Bring 2000 colones to tip the lady to watch over your car and of course tip your guides for the outstanding service that they provide. Wear pants, sneakers, hat, sunglasses and plenty of sunscreen.

Such a beautiful ride! We traveled down the beach and then went into the forest where we were able to see a small town and an abundance of wildlife! Our guide was great at finding the howler monkeys and other wildlife! Definitely recommend! We were able to trot and canter some too!

As a horse owner, it was most important to me to find horses who were well cared for and in shape for the job. Pacific Horses exceeded my expectations and they showed excellent horsemanship. Our guide Laetitia was outstanding with both the horses and my husband and I. She met us with the horses right outside the W Costa Rica which was really convenient. We loved our ride with Pacific Horses so much that we went a second time a few days later. If we are ever back in the area, Pacific Horses will be the only horseback riding tour who we will go with.

We had a wonderful experience riding on the beach and splashing in the sea on the horses! The horses had a lovely nature; sometimes a little frisky but we were paired with the horses depending on our experience. It was my boyfriend’s first time riding a horse, and he enjoyed the ride. So everybody felt comfortable. We definitely recommend!

My daughter loves horses and was really excited to ride them on the beaches of Costa Rica. I’m really glad we chose Pacific Horses. Our guide was awesome. He took some great photos of us and was really patient and showed us some really cool spots. I highly recommend this company if you want to ride horses on the beach!!

My family rode with Nicole for the first time a little over a year ago and we fell in love with her kind loving spirit. She loves horses and loves introducing people to how horses make you feel. After our ride I asked in passing if she would give my daughter lessons and my oh my has it changed my daughter. She has become more comfortable with animals and herself. Nicole is a great teacher, that not only teaches riding but how to fully take care of the horses. It teaches responsibility, patience and leadership. Thanks Nicole!
