Establo San Rafael was more than I had hoped for. I travelled from Canada to Costa Rica alone and really didn't know what to expect. I spent three weeks on the farm and can honestly say that by the end of the third week I was wishing I had more time. The horses are beautiful, well cared for, and full of personality. There is a horse for everybody, whether you're a beginner or have been riding your whole life. If you want to improve your dressage I would definitely reccomend E.S.R; Brenda is an amazing coach. The trails were beautiful. Everyone about the area is beautiful and even if you aren't into horse back riding there is a waterfall/swimming hole nearby that I visited a few times.
Overall, my time in Puriscal was amazing and I would definitely reccomend this farm to anyone.
