Well I gotta say, we (wife, son of age 4, and I) had an amazingly fun horse adventure up to a beautiful lookout point on the Volcano. Our tour guide Carlos was phenomenal. Great spirit! Horses were chill and knew their course. Looked like a rough trail! but they managed and carefully made their way up and down. Barely had... More

I had the best experience with Hari's Horses at Ometepe! I'm was a complete beginner except trying horseback riding twice as a kid about 20 years ago, but thanks to Carlos' (the guide) extreme patience and teaching abilities I ended up galloping! We had beautiful on the way and ended the tour going in the lake ON the horses :-)... More

We loved our 2 hour ride in the countryside and forest up the slope of Maderas. Our 5.5 year was confident almost immediately under Hari's instruction. Beautiful horses.

I think this is the best horse riding tour we have ever had! The place is beautiful, the horses look great and Hari is really cool. We wanted to do the 2hrs volcano trail, but they didn't recommend us this one, since we have some experience with horse riding. They do the volcano trail with 6 yrs old kids too.... More

You can tell Hari loves his horses in their care and temperament. My wife and son took their first ever horseback rides here and had the time of their lives. Both their horses were relatively well behaved (as far as horses go) and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Both of them came back beaming from ear to ear. While most of the... More

We took a two hour horsriding tour at Harris. Although we did not make a reservation, we could start right away. It was my first time riding a horse, and I got a really nice and calm horse. The instructions before we started were very clear. My wife had a little more experience, and she got a more demanding horse.... More

My friend and I came here for a horseback riding excursion into the jungle for a few hours. The horses are well trained, well taken care of, and extraordinary animals. As we rode around the different farming trails at the base of Maderas, we had spectacular views of the entire island. While neither of us had rode horses in a... More

My wife is a very experienced rider and I am a novice. We contacted Haris via email and set up a ride with them a day before. We stayed at Xalli and hired a taxi to take us to and from the Haris place. The drive was about 25 minutes from Xalli. The horses here are all very well taken... More

From the moment Haris picked me up from El Zolipote I knew I was in for a great day. We arrived at his farm and I was greeted warmly by Giovanni (Haris's friend) and pointed in the direction of the horses. I had chosen to do the 3hr trip through the forest ending at the lake; I had originally wanted... More
