My thirteen year old daughter and I took the half-day tour with Fabio in January. We absolutely loved this incredible day and still talk about it. The horses are docile, but also spirited if you want to trot and have some experience horseback riding. It's quite an exhausting day, but worth every minute. We rode to Eden Falls and then... More

We had such a great afternoon with Marvin and his beautiful horses! We did the 2,5h ride and Marvin showed us many different animals and plants. He is a friendly, funny and energetic guy and you can see that he loves his job and his horses. They all looked healthy, very well attended and were trained very well too. The... More

Pura Vida!! Marvin is simply amazing at what he does. He is very energetic and loves his horses. It was an amazing experience. I would want to come again and do a more in depth tour of the cloud forests.

We had a great time on this ride. We wanted to see the countryside surrounding Monteverde and this was the perfect way to do it. Marvin provided a very good introduction to our mounts and did everything he could to get us off to a good start. It's obvious that he loves and respects his horses. The horses were well... More

On our first full day in Costa Rica, my daughter and I had a fantastic day out with Marvin and his well cared for and excellently trained horses. Although I am not very experienced with horses, my daughter has been riding and caring for horses for over ten years and she is very critical of the way they are cared... More

We are family of four and went on a sunset horseback riding tour with this company. They were recommended to us by our hotel owner at Las Orqideas. They did an amazing job at commandeering the horses and guiding us on the ride. We are inexperienced riders but this is our fourth time doing horsebacking riding adventures on trips. Those... More

The owner of horse trek is a fine and friendly guy who clearly loves his horses and his ability to share them with others. The tour itself was fun and comfortable at a pace comfortable for a novice or a veteran with opportunities to trot and gallop galore. The only minor downside was the guide though also friendly and fairly... More

Dh and I were tired of walking around wet rain and cloud forests, so I thought we would do this for a change. We were pretty lucky with the weather. Our guide picked us up at 2 p.m. and took us to the place where the horses are kept, and gave us our instructions. We don't ride very often, maybe... More
