We had a fantastic morning horseback ride with these wonderful people. We rode on back roads, through fields, along the beach. Our guide kept an eye on us but this is not your standard "walk in a line" horseback ride. You have some freedom to meander along the road and we even caught a glimpse of a monkey during our ride. The horses are well cared for and very well trained. There's no bit, just a rope bridle and a standard saddle with covered stirrups. We had very little experience on horses but I felt completely comfortable within minutes of getting started. I loved every minute of our tour.

Did the 2 hour ATV tour + the 2 hour wave runner tour and both were excellent. Andy, our ATV guide took us to beaches we would have never discovered on our own, plus the mountain portion of the tour had gorgeous scenery and lots of shade, which was welcome this time of year! We saw a troupe of howler monkeys within 5 minutes of starting out. He also took us to Pirates Beach and went into the cracks and crevices of the tide pools to grab a sea star and urchins.Dago, our wave runner tour guide took us to secluded beaches and even free dove to grab a starfish for us to see. Both were very accommodating and made a point to customize the tour to what we wanted to see. Would highly recommend.

Sunset, horseback riding, awesome guides...does it get any better? Arenas Blancas, well done! I went on this tour with my friends Isabel and Ariana. Isabel and I are interns at Iguana Surf in Tamarindo, Guanacaste and we go on tons of tours in the area during our free time. This tour was outstanding. We heard howler monkeys and took cute pictures together. Amazing! Thank you so much for an awesome time. The beach was absolutely beautiful and the horses were perfect for beginner riders like us. They were very well behaved and the guide was awesome about making us feel comfortable (we can't remember his name but he was wearing a bucket hat!)

We will be sending people your way and we have been!

ATVing was awesome. We went two different days because we couldn't get enough. You stop at 4 different beaches, see monkeys in the trees, wild horses and Costa Rica living. Staff was insanely accommodating and let us truly enjoy ourselves. Highly recommend!

We rode ATV’s for 2 hours with David and it was great! He took us to multiple beaches....some we explored on foot and some we played around on the ATV’s. We had a blast and would DEFINITELY recommend riding with them!
