We stayed for two nights in November and had a wonderful time. The horses were lovely and well trained. I would recommend the ride out to Chilito's cantina for fried chicken to anyone! Breakfast each morning was beautifully prepared and delicious. Kay recommended that we drive out to Flamingo beach and allowed us the use of some beach chairs. The beach was exactly what we were looking for, quiet and picturesque. We went for an evening stroll on the property and were delighted to discover Howler monkeys and iguanas. The air-conditioned room was large and comfortable and the bed had quality linens, which I always appreciate. The outdoor shower under a banana tree was a nice exotic bonus I will be recommending this ranch to my fellow horse owner friends and anyone else heading to Costa Rica.

  • Liked — Breakfasts and the ride to the cantina.

We had the best time staying at the Painted Pony Guest Ranch, and we especially like the elegant/romantic outdoor shower. Kay and Esteban did a wonderful job of making sure our stay was everything we had hoped for. Whether it was recommending local places to eat or calling around to help us book tours, they went out of their way to help. My wife and I also took part in the horseback riding available at the guest ranch. The quality of the horses were subperb, and they will customize a package to suit your level of riding. It was truly a memorable experience.

  • Liked — the hospitality of the owner.
  • Disliked — Nothing!
