Diego was fantastic! None of us (family of 5) had ridden before. Diego was patient and kind and we had the BEST time with him riding on the beach - really beautiful. The horses were clearly really well trained and well cared for. This is a must do - Diego is the coolest cowboy we've ever met!

This experience was one of the best i ever had! Diego and his horses were amazing. He picked the right kind of horse for each of us, according to our riding experience. The horses were well trained and calm. The nature was beautiful and the whole tour on the beach breathtaking! We recommend it to every horse/nature lover. Just one... More

My husband and I have quite some riding experience, but so far haven't any possibility to ride on the beach and in the water, since it's forbidden on most of beaches in Europe. With Diego's Riding Adventure our dreams have finally came true. It was exciting to have long canters on the edge of the ocean in sunset. The horses,... More

This tour truly exceeded my expectations. I was a little nervous as this was only my second time on a horse but Diego, the owner, and Victoria, our guide, easily made me feel very comfortable on the horse. Riding on the beach during the sunset was incredible! The beach was beautiful and it was so much fun trotting through the... More

Diego really makes an effort to make you have the best experience. I had the forest/beach tour and it was absolutely the best. The forest was pretty rough at some point but the horses are very well trained, strong and sweet and they really seemed to enjoy it as well. The best part for me was cantering on the beach... More

Hands down! Bar none! This is the best tour operator! They are not the least expensive tour. But like anything you get what you pay for!! Diego was so patient in choosing the right horse for each rider and there abilities. I would highly refer him to all that ask! Tony Minicola Peterborough Ontario Canada

A highlight of our very active Costa Rica trip was horseback riding on Esterillos Beach with The Riding Adventure. We met the owner, Diego, our guide, Victoria and the horses at The Pelican beachside resort. The horses looked healthy and strong. After being matched up with a horse and receiving some instruction and tips from Diego, Victoria lead us down... More

I have always wanted to ride on the beach. Diego and Victoria created an experience that went over my expectations! My husband and I plus another couple had all different riding experience, form beginner to expert. The ride was challenging through the woods where you got to see mountain views, a different side I didn't know how much I would... More

The wife and I went on a private sunset beach ride that ended with dinner/drinks at the Hotel Pelicans. The beach was awesome, the horses were in great shape, well trained and bit less, we walked into the water up to their bellies, being only two of us we got to gallop quite a bit. Diego was great in providing... More
