Star Mountain Horse Tours is the best in all of Mal Pais, Santa Teresa! My boyfriend and I had the most romantic ride through Mal Pais. The horses were friendly and well groomed. The scenic tour was unforgettable. I definitely recommend this tour for other couples or families visiting the Santa Teresa region of Costa Rica.

We stayed at this hotel with some friends in Mal Pais. Outside our door was a nice little hike to the top of the mountain with spectacular views of the peninsula. And our favorite was the horseback riding the hotel offers. Strolled through the jungle and down the mountain to a stunning beach. It was picture perfect.

ride in a huge and gorgeous nature reserve abutting a stunning national park. Wether you are an experienced rider or not, you can enjoy this affordable horse tour which was one of the highlights of my Costa Rican trip. The Star Mountain lodge was also an amazing place to stay

Wonderful views, but the guide didn't spoke any english at all and it was only a 10 second go-through for the one of us which never has ridden a horse before. It felt unsafe.

The Star Mountain Horse Tour was great. My husband and two sons loved the mountain and beach scenery. It was our first time on a horse tour and we would highly recommend this one. The horses were gentle and the tour guide was accommodating to us. We are definitely doing this again when we go back to Costa Rica!

My wife and I were lucky enough to spend our honeymoon enjoying the splendor of Santa Teresa and Mal Pais. We were even luckier to have Star Mountain Jungle Lodge as our accommodations. On top of that my wife grew up horseback riding in Montana so she was very excited that Star Mountain offers horse tours. The ride was a... More

We were so fortunate to have chosen Star Mountain Horse Tours to take our grandchildren on a horseback riding tour of a lifetime. The jungle, the beach, the animals and the sunset were way more beautiful than we ever expected. Thank you to the owners and the guide. We have pictures and memories to last a lifetime.

We read good reviews for this horseback riding and since Star Mountain resort was just down the road from the house in which we stayed, we decided to book the trip. There were 4 of us, myself and 3 teenage sons (17-20). Our guide did not speak any English, so when he kept giving instructions to my sons in Spanish,... More
