"Ride with the Best" Perfect for families or single travelers and close to San Jose. Finca Caballo Loco will carefully choose a horse that suits your personal comfort level to ensure that you have a safe, fun and unique Costa Rica horse adventure. A variety of different trails cross pristine rivers and pass impressive waterfalls while winding their way along scenic paths in the midst of the lush and majestic secondary forest. This unique Costa Rica horseback riding experience will take you along the edge of a spectacular canyon with panoramic 360° views of the El Rodeo Biological Corridor. Nature lovers will especially enjoy these relaxed and interesting tours that allow you to be at one with your horse while giving you the opportunity to appreciate the flora and fauna that Costa Rica is so proud to protect and share with its' guests. For those advanced equestrian's wanting more from their horse riding experience, there is also plenty of time to enjoy an invigorating canter through the beautiful rural countryside. The jungle setting is truly unique and "the Tree Top Terrace" offers a delicious snack after the ride. Reservations should be made in advance to guarantee availability on the day that you'd like to book your riding adventure.

Victor and Krysia are petfect hosts. Their stable is cute and tidy. They offer various routes through the hills and forest just outside San Jose. The stable has a covered terace on which we did enjoy a cold drink looking over the forest.
