We took a morning horseback ride through the jungle and down to the beach at Playa Palada and Playa Guiones. Nice couple owns the place - fluent in German, Spanish and Inglés. Our guide took photos and posted them on Facebook the same day. Located below Lagarta Lodge, north of the little peninsula (currently, the pin is on the wrong spot). They take credit cards.

We chose the 1 1/2 hour ride with two adults and three young teens. The horses were great, well behaved and well cared for. The route took us through various examples of Costa Rican culture: the beach, roads, jungle and little community areas. This ride was a highlight of our trip!

We visited Nosara at New's Year's of 2017 and were recommended to Boca Nosara Tours by someone else staying at our hotel - what great luck! Beate & Hawe have fully embraced the pura vida concept of life in Costa Rica and have created a wonderful company! Our experience riding horses and kayaking with Boca Nosara Tours was part of why we returned this past New Year's - this time with a group of friends :) Beate herself could not be more warm, friendly, accommodating and professional. She takes care of her horses like they are her children and thinks carefully about how comfortable each rider will be with the various personalities of her horses and the level of skill of her riders. In Manuel and Arnoldo she has excellent guides who speak English proficiently and are not only calm, good horsemen, but also very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna seen on the rides through the jungle and on the beach. They both are so observant too - pointing out monkeys in the trees, gators in the river, and more items of interest. They are also good with all level of skills in their groups; patient, funny, will let you practice your Spanish with them, and make you feel they really love what they are doing. For those riders who are willing and able, and if the tide is low, they can gallop down a long stretch of beach. Really gallop like the wind! On our last opportunity to ride this trip, my husband and I were not able to go at low tide and thought we'd have to satisfy ourselves with a beautiful walk, but ... we ended up getting to do a bit of a gallop on the path next to the beach. We also did kayaking with Boca Nosara Tours - a guided kayaking tour our 1st trip, on the two rivers next to the stables, where learned much about the birds and the mangroves. This year we just rented kayaks and paddled about, my husband taking his fishing rod along and dropping a line here and there. I was grateful for Beate's willingness to have quite a few e-mail exchanges before we arrived this year to sort out how to accommodate our big group that included ages from 7 to 64, beginner to proficient in skill. It can be very busy at that time of year and we didn't want to miss out on getting at least one ride in! (With the big group we did an hour ride, but last year were out longer - tailored to the different groupings. Both rides offered jungle and beach terrain.) We did not take advantage of ATV rental, but heard from others that the prices are "good". Don't miss out on meeting energetic, outgoing Beate, her kind crew, and her beautiful great Dane doggies...it is a terrific time!!!
