One of my best vacations

This group is fantastic. It is well-run, the horses are properly cared for, the food is great, and things are on time. I highly recommend them.

The waterfall was beautiful. I enjoyed that we were able to get the horses up to a canter. Most places will barely let you bring the horse to a trot. I would have liked some different terrain but over all it was a great experience

Absolutely loved Valentino and all of the other kind-hearted people at Finca Valmy. Our hotel booked for us and our ride arrived in an old Range Rover to take us to the farm. Took about 30-45 min from El Avion. There we were settled in and asked questions about experience and then matched to horses. It was just my fiancé,... More

What a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE! Have you ever ridden a horse through a RIVER in the RAINFOREST!?! Here's what we did (as other reviews mention): - Transfer (tourist VW-like bus) w/o much talking because the driver nor guides speak (except for Che) - Meet Che who gives you the 'low down' and 'sizes up' the group - Logistics: Horses assigned, basic...

We loved everything about this excursion-we left from Arenas del Mar and the drive was about 30-40 minutes-but very interesting! We got to see the countryside and where the locals live. We immediately fell in love with Che and Oscar and the three jungle dogs. They could see I was bewildered by everything, so they took the time to pick... More

My cousin and I went horseback riding with Finca Valmy Tours on our last full day in Costa Rica. It was the best way to round out the trip. We were picked up on time and taken to the stables, where we were warmly greeted by Che (spelling?) who also introduced Oscar. It turned out we had the guides all... More

Valmy tours for the win! So incredibly lovely. We were picked up in the morning, made our way out to the stable. We met Oscar and Che, and our horses Sergeant and Big Cinnamon. Being from TX, we had riding experience and couldn't wait to get started! Che was a delight the entire time. As we rode quietly through the... More

My wife and I lucked out. Another family that had booked for the same time as us changed their plans at the last minute, and we ended up with a private trip just the two of us. Our guide Che was worth the trip. He's a very interesting person who has had lots of life experiences, and a true pleasure... More

Our group of 9 took this tour and had a wonderful time. Our guide Che was a fount of interesting trivia about the jungle and 60's music.Oscar was the lead horse and was very patient about getting us set up on our horses.They were very sure-footed and you never had to worry that you were going to make a misstep....

Our family enjoyed a hoseback riding tour with Finca Valmy. The horses are very well taken care of, which can't be said for very many horseback tours in the area (that we know of). The ride up and back a gentle riverbed was well suited to our group that included kids (aged 10 and 12) as well as first time... More
