We have been to Rancho Tropical numerous times over the past couple years during our visits to the area. These guys are great. The horseback riding on the trails and the beaches is a must-do adventure for the area. We cannot wait to be back!!!!!

Rancho Tropical is located 1 kilometer from Martina's Buena Esperanza restaurant. When you book a tour, you can ask for a pickup with the horses at Martina's.
